    So, last week some degenerate SOB stole my tank bag off my parked bike. In the Tank Bag was a spare Ignition Key. Dealer wants $40- for a blank. I'll be getting 2. However, $80- for 2 key blanks is waay tooo high. Anyone have any alternative places I can get a blank?

    If you think that's too much, wait 'til you get the bill for programming those keys.

    I was thinking those chipped key blanks were not going to be the lions share of the cost...

    Seems like ~$100 per key is the norm these days. That's what I was quoted for a Ford key, but then the spare showed up, so I dodged a bullet. Of course most auto keys have remote lock electronics in them, so the keys themselves are more to begin with. I don't see any way around the dealer pricing for chipped keys.

    Yea you definitely want to get the stolen key out of the memory of the bike so it will no longer start it. Just in case the thieves have a way to track it down.

    Exactly, because that scumbag sold it to a scumbag who can actually ride a bike, and he's waiting for you to repark in that area.
