New Keys!

These keys are from eBay - I think it was $5.00 for all 3! There's a set that comes with Red/Blue/Black which I had ordered for the first bike. I didn't want another red key so I asked and was sent a link for a black key.

They are MUCH smaller than the ridiculous 'sword' that Suzuki sends out with this bike. They work just fine - if you look at the stock key in the ignition there is extra key length above the ignition, and these keys with the tapered bottom have plenty of clearance.

There is a clear protective sticker over the Suzuki logo - that's why the edges look rough or white.

I read somewhere online that these keys might not be easy to copy - so to be safe I went to a locksmith rather than a box store. They cut a set of keys in under 5min and they worked flawlessly, the first time.

Like I said I've been using them on my previous bike with no issue - for $5.00 it's an amazing value.

Can you swap the immobiliser chip over easily?

Been meaning to get some spares cut, thanks for the reminder...ordered these.

No immobiliser in the US. I'd probably have to take out a loan to buy three of those, lol.

Yeah Suzuki spares are crazy expensive! I bent one since it sticks so far out of the ignition and went looking for replacements. $38 or something for a Suzuki blank?! When these came in the mail I was skeptical because they were so much shorter, but when it fit in the ignition I was stoked.

I'm bummed that the US keys don't have the immobilizer feature. I thought that was pretty cool.
But, since they don't, give me a link to the keys you bought.

I guess I bought a different item...it was a picture of three keys but I only got one. The description didn't specifically say, but did always refer to it in the singular.

I thought our bikes did have immobilizers? I was told when I bought my k8 busa that it had a chip in the key..
