Finding a spare key
« on: November 18, 2015, 08:06:19 pm »
I am having trouble finding a non chipped key for saddlebags. I tried the local hardware stores then local locksmith, he looked in his book and said it was a dealer item, he couldn't get one even WITHOUT the transponder.

The members who have spares, do you remember a key# or the make and model car/bike your key was originally designed for?

Thanks, I tried the search function but come up empty.

The key brand name is "ilco" on the left is "X80" on the right is "VL6" not visible at the top is "USA". I had the key made at our local ACE Hardware here in Chillicothe.

I ordered a spare key for my 2013 triumph trophy $76 for just 1 key. Theres gotta be a more cost-effective way to replace a key.

I was told it was a volvo key when I got a spare cut.

I asked in the locksmiths shop for a spare to match the bike key, he gave me two keys with different plastic tops/grips to take out to the bike and try, both were a good fit so bought one for a bit less than ú5 with no cutting required.

An alternate:  ilco X270     TMC1.

Mine is similar to Mike's (NavyDad) but has a slightly elongated hole rather than the slot. I like the slot better...

FWIW, my dealer charged me $36.15, and the cut at the locksmith was only a few bucks. The dealer then coded it for free.
