Yea i know they are expensive as hell for bikes. I forget all the reasons why, but i remember i lost my bike keys for a good number of days and decided searching my house would be a better option than tossing 80 bucks to a highway robber

Papa, Did you consult with your MOM (Motorcyle Owner's Manual).

Anyway, I know that being anal and all, I've written the key code down in the section of the MOM for everybike that I've owned and when I've sold the bike, I've given the MOM to the new owner. Did you get/have the MOM, if so it's worth a shot to look in there for the key code. If you have the key code, it will allow you to go the dealership and get a new key made for a hell of a lot cheaper than paying a locksmith.

Yea our motorcycles use a combination key to fit all three locks, so its true that you'll need three keys if made by a locksmith.

When my key was lost I took all the locks off the bike and the gascap to the locksmith. He was able to to make one key to fit all locks within 2 days at a cost of $25.

If a locksmith can't make one key for all the locks, he's not very good.
BTW, how come you all only have one key? If I only had one or lost one of my two, I'd get another made ASAP
