Default Cutting Keys ?

I may be totally crazy but there is a bike at a salvage auction here locally. Its an exact image of my 2012 CCT

I may purchase it for parts if it sells low enough but it has no keys. Can the dealer or anyone else cut keys off the VIN?

I suppose you could change out the ignition but the tank and bags would be an issue as well.

So you disconnected the ignition and brought it in? I didn't know the Locksmith had those skills. Good to know.

If you just plan to use for parts you can swap over the locks from your bike.

Locksmith can make keys or you can sometimes find people selling a full set online of the lock cylinders keyed same.

If the bike is legit and not stolen or whatever I'd just get with a locksmith.

They might be marked on the locks too. My Honda the ignition when removed can get to the key number inside it and dealer can make key to match. Victory might be similar on one of the locks.

Yeah, I've lost my key before (luckily I found it later) and I just pulled the ignition off and brought it to a locksmith. The problem with that is, I believe it will be missing a tooth because that key would turn the ignition but wouldn't unlock the gas cap. I had to take the whole bike up to a locksmith to have them pick the lock on the gas cap and cut the right key. THAT key would only unlock the gas cap and wouldn't turn the ignition lol.

Regardless, it's not impossible to get keys made for that auction bike.

yes I unbolted and unplugged it, Took him a few hours to make the keys he had to completely pull the lock to pieces, but he did it.

Googling it looks like average around $100 for locksmith to make a key from just a lock. Seems reasonable to me.

Not too worried here. The auction house is a big time auto salvage place that has an occasional bike or UTV. It seems like a crazy way for me to get my passenger grab rails but I may buy it and mess around with it. The pictures look like it has no damage but it's there for a reason.

I'm guessing I could get my grab rails, sell off same parts, keep the tri-ovals and go from there.
