    Wow £500 that's steep ....

    I stand to be corrected but I think there is a maximum number of keys (poss 4) that you can have coded to the bike.
    Can anyone confirm this ???


    At least you've still got your sense of humor mate

    Similar situation years ago on my old CBR600F3. I opted just to have 2 keys as well.

    Broken at the bottom is quite unusual. They normally get knocked and snap off at the top.

    I would think a locksmith would have the right tools to fish out a broken piece and at not much cost either.---
