Replacement key help.

A week ago I brought a 2014 CBR500R in San Antonio,TX and everything was great. Drove home awesome but realized that the key if off too one side a little, so it wont work to one side. So I went got a copy and it doesn't work. I spoke with a guy from AAA and he said the dealer would have the key code and then boom it's all good again. They couldnt help me and suggest change everything out. I seen somewhere but cant recall that the under the gas tank lid, the bottom part there is also the key code. Can somebody confirm or not, i'm stuck and need a new key for piece of mind

I'm fairly sure a Honda main agent would be able to organise a replacement key from the VIN code.

My worst fear about dying is my wife selling all my stuff for what I told her it cost...

I went to Honda dealership yesterday and they were no help at all, besides offering to change all locks and ignition

That's not great. maybe an email to Honda US asking their advice. It should be possible to identify the key number somehow, and then get a key ready cut. Much better than copying a damaged original. I take it the bike was supplied secondhand, without a spare key?

I'm in the USA and believe you've got to get the blank key from Honda (35121-MGS-A31). I ordered this today and will take it to a proper locksmith for duplication. It does not appear these are chip keys or have any sort of coding (in the USA).


Another way to get a key would be to grab the little plate with a number on it that's supposed to be delivered with the keys when the motorcycle is delivered to the first owner.

I agree with CB Rogers. The bent key can be straightened and copied by a locksmith.
Probably you will need the Honda key blank since the key is much longer than standard keys.

Several owners have noted that the keys bend easily. I had to straighten mine and am still using it.

Ride safely,
