Default New front caliper/ need RoadLok info

Fellas, front caliper ( because of three year storage) crapped out on my 06' Ness, and guess what? When the factory Brembo's leak/fail, there are NO caliper rebuild kits (!!!) Facttory new from Victory? Ka CHING! 335 $ Anyway, was lucky to score a like new 08' caliper off a wreck in our largest/friendliest state ( Canada!) And it fits perfectly. But, it came with the optional "RoadLok" front brake disc lock. I don't have a key for it, so does anyone know how to score a replacement key to make it work? Thanks!

Maybe take it to your local locksmith? Have you attempted to contact the lock manufacturer directly? Short of those possibilities, I guess you could attempt to cut it off w/a 4" angle grinder...

Uhhhh, no ! Its a 300+$ option for Victory bikes, and there will be no hillbilly/trailer park grinding-off of parts round here! I was PM'd by a parts guy at a Southern Vic dealer, he believes that with the VIN in hand, I can order a replacement key, gonna try it Monday.

Any luck on scoring a replacement key for the caliper lock?

That would be great! The local dealer here ( as usual) was no help. I have reached out to the RoadLok folks and they are trying to accommodate me also. Helluva lick system, would be a shame to get rid of it just because I don't have a key for it.

It sure would. That's a pretty slick setup... that is unless the key goes missing.

Hope the caliper manufacturer is more help to you than your dealer.

Rod loc is an aftermarket part not a victory part ,so either the owner added it as I did or the dealer did , in any case only rod loc or the original owner of the bike can help you . what you might be able to do is have a victory dealer contact the original owner and ask if he or she has the key or the key number , I don't think victory will tell you who the owner was , if you can get the key number rod lol can get you a key . good luck

FYI - there's a shop on EBay that sells Brembo caliper rebuild/seal kits for both the front and rear Brembos on the '06's! I'm ordering them for my newly chromed calipers while I have them apart.
