Probably the easiest lock to get out without having a key is the one in the black panel that opens the fairing pocket. Take the panel out and remove the lock. The number should be on it and a Honda dealer can make a key from that number, they might charge you $10.00 but it can be done. Or take that lock to a locksmith and they can make you one. Once you get it done hide a spare key on the bike, many places to hide it, don't hide it in the trunk or somewhere you need a key to get to. I hid mine in the bottom of the passenger pocket under a piece of black tape, tape it to the inside of one of the side covers, or just look around for a place.
How would one get the cubbybox lock out if all keys are lost?????????????
You can remove the ignition switch.
or take your VIN to a licensed lock smith.
Your dealer should also be able to get a key code w/your VIN and no need to disassemble anything
When I picked up my '84 GL1200 Interstate. The prior owner announced that he had lost the keys.
I called my local Honda dealer and they told me to remove the ignition switch and bring my title and they would make a pair of keys for $8.00.
Evidently they told me this not realizing that in order to remove the ignition switch it required a key in order to remove some of the parts in order to remove the switch. My brother-in-law stopped by and found me in the midst of my frustration. We began looking around and found that one of the saddle bags just happened to be unlocked. We removed the three little nuts that attaches the lock to the bag and he dropped it in his pocket and walked away saying "let me try something". The next day he came walking in with a grin on his face and holding up a pair of keys. Excitedly, I asked him what in the world he did. He said he walked into the same dealership that I had called....tossed the lock on the counter....and said "can you make me a couple of keys for this?" The guy behind the counter picked up the lock...looked under the rubber lock gasket...wrote down a number....went to a book and started flipping pages.....scanned down a list of numbers....pulled out a couple of key blanks....went to his key making machine....and handed Lyle two new keys and said that'll be $8.00. The clerk didn't ask to see the bikes title....didn't ask for any kind of I.D. or anything. In ten minutes Lyle was on his way to my house with two new keys.
When Lyle arrived, of course we began trying out the keys and found that they worked on all the locks. AND GUESS WHERE WE FOUND THE ORIGINAL KEYS?? In the locked right hand fairing pocket. The prior owner evidently tossed them in and closed the lid not realizing that he had just locked the keys inside.
NOW I HAVE PLENTY OF KEYS......FOUR!!!
What really ticked me off was.........WHY DIDN'T THE DEALERSHIP TELL ME TO DO THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE???? HERE I WAS AT HOME DISASSEMBLING HALF THE DARN BIKE TO GET THE IGNITION SWITCH OFF...AND ALL I REALLY HAD TO DO WAS JUST BRING IN ANY LOCK OFF THE BIKE.
I knew a local Honda dealer here. Losing the only key to a used bike for sale was distressingly common. They would call a lock smith to come to the store and make a new key. Charge for all this goodness............$100!. But there you have it.
Believe it or not you can have a "valet" key made, it will open the trunk and glove box, it will even fit into the ignition...but won't start the motor. If my memory serves me right, I went to a local locksmith and had two extra keys made for my Wing. I got home and neither would start the motor, but they did everything else I returned to the locksmith on the Wing, they re-cut the ignition key and made sure it worked before I left, it did and I had them make another! The locksmith wanted to refund my money for the other two keys but I declined. That said, I keep an "good" key hidden in the trunk and a "valet" key somewhere else on the bike Oh, and I always carry an extra key in my wallet, a "good" one. I'm a little key happy, when I traded in my Kawasaki Voyager I gave the dealer 4 complete sets of keys. Go Figure?
Just a note: When travelling by motorcycle I always key an extra key to someone in the group...just in case. My last trip, by car not motorcycle, the vehicle ignition key was "lost". A tow truck had to tow the vehicle 40 miles to a dealer to get a key made. The owner of the vehicle got 1 (one) frigging key made at a cost of $6.00. When I asked why he didn't get a couple of keys made he replied, "I have another set of keys at home"? Oh, the original ignition keys were found two days later, they had slipped behind some luggage. Smile, I did.
