Motorcyle Security, Your Next Step

We all lose our keys from time to time, but losing a motorcycle key is a little different. Motorcycle owners know that losing the keys to their ride is a frustrating experience, to say the least. The key to a motorcycle provides more to the bike than just turning over the engine. From the fuel tank to the helmet, seat and fork lock, your motorcycle key is a very important piece to your bike’s puzzle.

So, you lost it, now what? 

You could call the dealer, but you must first locate the key code. (But that was on the key?!) The key code is also located on the lock cylinder, take a quick peek. Not there? Check the seat lock, the fork lock and underneath the gas cap. If you are still having difficulty locating the key code, contact the dealership with your VIN number and proof of ownership (insurance and driver’s license), you will be able to obtain a key this way, with minimal hassle.

If you are still having difficulty locating the key code, contact the dealership with your VIN number and proof of ownership (insurance and driver’s license), you will be able to obtain a key this way, with minimal hassle. Solving the problem this way could be quite a bit more expensive than just calling an a full service Reno locksmith like Desert Lock, though.

The easy way? Call Desert Locksmith. 

Whether it is an older model or fresh off the lot with an electronic security chip, Desert Locksmith’s technicians will be able to get you back on the road in no time.

When motorcycle emergencies happen, locals call Desert Locksmith for their motorcycle locksmith needs, even if you have broken the key off in the ignition. Desert Locksmiths will get you back on the road in no time with the expertise you need to ensure your new key and/or ignition works perfectly.

Luckily, most motorcycle keys are not equipped with electronics and responders, making them very easy to replace if they are lost or stolen. Generally speaking though, your gas cap and ignition switch are using the same single key, so the loss of it tends to be a bit problematic.

At Desert Locksmiths we will ensure that when we cut your new motorcycle key it is tested and matches the gas tank, as well as other same-key operated functions, on your bike. Within 20 – 30 minutes of your phone call we will be at your location, re-creating the key to your bike usually between 15 – 45 minutes depending on the issue with your bike.
