Default Ever Lost Your Keys?

Hello Everyone,

New to the forum. I'm here because I can't seem to get a straight story from anyone about what to do about having lost my keys for my 2005 Hammer S.

Just did a bunch of moving and in the move my keys have vanished.

I have heard everything from you have to order the keys from Japan to call a locksmith. But don't call a locksmith because they will ruin the cylinder.

Has anyone ever lost their keys? I could use some advice.

Thank you all,
Al

If push comes to shove and you can't find the key or a locksmith you can trust you can always get a new ignition switch/key. Search ebay for "victory hammer lock set" and you should find at least one with a key for $48.

I heard they have to dig in with a blank key to locate pin position. And it could potential jam up the cylinder inside...?

I'm not a pro at locks so that was news to me

Did you buy it new? If so, just call the dealer you bought it from and have them order you a key. Your low post count paired with that "Japan" comment has me thinking that you may have stole the bike as any TRUE Victory owner would KNOW that Japan doesn't have much (if anything) to do with these bikes.

Haha funny and insulting all in one post. I was hoping for assistance not color commentary on my obvious blunder.

I bought it from a friend who was just getting to old to ride and wasn't getting much use out of it. So I could go to him and ask the Tucson dealer for a key. But when I called the dealer in tucson he bought it from today they did not present that as an option they told me to call a locksmith or buy a new ignition.

I was hoping I would find some better options from experienced owners as I have graduated from street bikes and am a new victory enthusiast.

From page 37 in the 2007 owners manual:

"The ignition key identification number is stamped into the shaft of each key.
With the ignition key number and proof of ownership, an authorized Victory dealer can assist you in obtaining a replacement key.
Notice: For easy reference, record all vehicle numbers in the space provided on page 159."

Default suck it up.

buying a new ignition is your cheapest and easiest option. Maybe then you'll remember to keep the 2 keys separate from each other & where they won't get lost.
