CB 750 F1 key?
« on: November 12, 2005, 04:07:21 pm »
Anyonefound somewhere that does replacement keys? I have tried a couple of locksmiths and they don't keep the base Honda master key.

I had to replace the whole ignition lock, found a pattern lock on ebay for six quid, new unused with two keys for under a tenner.

Had another thought, can't key blanks be bought through Honda?

I will call a Honda bike dealer on Mon and check if the old keys are available.

Jim, on the SOHC USA site it has been revealed that there may only me 7 Honda keys. On the bottom of the lock cylinder is a 3 digit code, the dealers can make a key with that code.

Bobby,
Thanks. I found a place here that says, if I photocopy the key and send it to them with the hon code, they will cut me a key from that, and they say it works!

I found a car accessory shop that sells keys and they had a blank from JMA with a fake looking Honda wing badge on it, this key works fine.

I had the same problem.
I dont know if you have them in England,
But theres a place in the states called Ace Hardware.
That made me a key for my 76'F....for like $2
If you cant find anything in your country.
 I can mail you a blank from mine.
