Title: lost transponder
Post by: heartscrub on February 05, 2018, 12:15:26 am
The spare key wasn't where it was supposed to be and I can't locate my "key number".  I'm screwed, aren't I? All I can find is my title.

Watch a locksmith at the Cortez national take the gas cap off
and make a key from it.

I assume you've lost both the active FoB(s) and the Immobilizer (if you had one).  If you had the immobilizer you could take it and the bike down to the dealer to get a new active FoB made.  You just need to be able to turn the bike on in order to let KDS get access to program new FoBs.

If you have neither, then it will be expensive to get you going.

A locksmith should be able to help you. There are two types of keys for these things. An "A" and "B". They look the same but the difference is like a Ford Ignition vs. a trunk key. The flats are different sides so they can't go into the wrong slot. Or something like that.

I would order one of each blank to be safe. Also be aware if you have a working FOB the key number is also stamped on the stove key.
