Keys Cut to Code
It is possible for a Locksmith to cut a key for just about anything, so long as they have the code for that particular key. Key codes consist of either 2-8 numbers (numeric) or a combination of 2-8 letters and numbers (alphanumeric). This code tells us both the type of key required, and the spacing and depth for the cuts. It is almost always found on the original keys. (This is also a great way to know which one of your keys is the original, if copies have been made.)
NOTE: Always keep your original keys in a safe place. If you are making a copy of a key, it is always best to make a copy of the original key. Copies of Copies tend to break down and not work over time.
If you do not have an original key or picture then the next place to look is right on the lock itself. Most often locks on Roof top Carriers, Office Furniture, some Safes, and many other products have the code stamped on both the original key and on the face of the lock cylinder. ( See Picture below )

Lost the Key to your Motorcycle and you Don't Have a Backup....What do you Do?
First if this has not yet happened to you, it might be a good idea to come in and see us to get an extra key made before that becomes your question. If that is no longer an option, then here is some information that I hope will be of value to you.
It is most important that I tell you that all motorcycles do not have codes stamped on them. The information below is only of value if your bike was.
There are several places you can look to find the key code. (Note: use a magnifying glass to verify the number. If the numbers and letters are not exactly correct, then you will not be able to create the key you need)
- Stamped on the original keys
- Metal or plastic tag– on key ring with the original keys
- Owner's manual– or possibly the bill of sale.
- Helmet Lock– Newer bikes often hide the code, so you may need to remove the lock in order to find or see the code.
- Seat Lock– Older bikes may again have the key code stamped directly on the face of the lock. Once again the newer models tend to hide the code, so once again, removal is usually required in order to see or find the code.
- VIN number – As a last resort, it is sometimes possible to obtain the code from a dealer using the VIN. This is only an option if this information was recorded into their system when the bike was first purchased. If you are unable to find a code stamped in any of the above noted places, then this may be an option for you.
