positive..... It doesn't work in the tank either. I think there is an extra notch on the key for the tank and tail or something. I am going to take it to a different locksmith on monday and see what he says.

You could probably just hit it with a wire brush and

wear the sharpness off the edge's. It should work

after that.

I recieved my bike from the salvage company without any keys. Well i took my ignition to a locksmith and he made me a set for it. It works in the ignition fine but not in the tank and trunk. There is only one key right????

Yep, just one!

Are you sure the lock or seat/cowling isn't jammed from the crash?

I agree with Tenn. Same thing happened to me with another bike. I cleaned the keys with a wire brush and the keys worked!

Do what some of the other guys recomended, if it doesnt work then it Could be they just put another ignition cylinder in from some other bike!!!

Take out the tail cylinder and bring that to the locksmith and make another key!!!
