In a couple more hours it won't matter anyway. I do have to say
it's getting cold standing out here waiting for the Rapture or
end or whatever those Mayans had in mind for us.

Maybe, but I do have to often wonder why folks don't ever even try doing a bit of a search first before asking some questions...

OTOH, in reality most folks that know me in person say... well... that I'm a cranky old man.

Is this any cause for concern or is it a simple matter of finding a slightly thicker key and having it cut. It's not a deal breaker, but it gave the appearance of cheapness.

Yamaha oem keys are a little soft. Lots of riders just go get some generic keys made up and toss the oem ones in a drawer for safe keeping. I used my oem keys for 160k and bent one once, (my fault). Using a little care makes a big difference, but I also carried a spare, just in case. Cheap insurance. The bags typically like a little pressure on the latch/lid when turning the key. A simple matter of getting used to the procedure.

@ Pluric - The end of the Mayan calendar just means it's time for a new calendar. They never said anything about the end of the world. Don't freeze your butt off standing out there in the cold.

Why would you wanna' live anywhere else?

And "Spring Break" is not just great down in South Padre Island, but right here, too... over in Port Aransas. Pretty dang good in Galveston, too. And to use Graham's wonderful device to help folks...

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Texas+Spring+Break+pictures

But the women are damn PHAT anywhere here, year around!

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Texas+Women+pictures

And Texas had Indy Cars and NASCAR here for years (at TMS), and now we got Formula One, ALMS, Grand Am, Aussie V-8 Super Cars, and MotoGP... With WSBK right around the corner (all at COTA). All along with spectacular weather and some of the best motorsicle ridin' anywhere in the world.

Like I said, why would ya' wanna' liv' anywhere else?

Okay, so it wasn't that cold today. Took the day off just in case the
Mayans knew something I didn't. If I'm going out I'm going out with the grandkid.

Loaded up the trailer and rode around the neighborhood.

Thanks.

I'm pretty good about using the search function. Unfortunately, I didn't have a lot of time and I was hoping someone could say the key sucks or do a search, plenty of info on the interwebs.

I'm sorry to have bothered you Dallara. Please accept my apologies.

GrahamD...thanks for the link!

Thanks.

I would think the S10 would have push button start by now. Everything else does...almost.

No apology necessary. Wasn't really a bother. I was honestly happy to try and provide at least a partial answer for you.

I just wondered why somebody would do take the time to type out a 250-word or so question post on a forum, where they'd have to log-in, wait for answers, etc....

Instead of just typing 8 or 10 words into a Google search box and get a bunch of instant answers...

I'll let ya' get back to what you were doing... I know you're busy.

Dallara

You don't want keyless ignition. Really.
