Hi everyone, I'm Brady Huck and i live in kansas. i've been a member of the yahoo site for sometime now, but i haven't posted in a while. I have a 1990 Vulcan 750 that was poorly taken care of and slowly but surely brought back to life. I've had it for 5 years now and love it to death but i recently lost the keys to it and don't have any spares... i was wondering if this happened to anyone else and what I could do about it. I didn't know if the dealer could get me a key, if i have to get a new ignition or any other ways to go about it. thanx for your help

P.S. These sites have been a tremendous help to me.

Brady

It's possible that the dealer can make a key from the VIN. Another thought would be to take the ignition switch to a locksmith and have him make a key that fits it and the other locks. The last idea is to take all the locks to a locksmith and have them re-key the locks. Which means the ignition, gas tank, helmet locks, and trunk lock.

Yeah, What he said.
Although, I went to the closest dealer to me to see about getting a spare key made when I first got the bike. I think I confused them with that request. They finally suggested going to the hardware store.
With the VIN#, I think a dealer could order you another key atleast.
Good luch with whatever ya end up doin'.

Welcome to the site. Good luck with our local dealer :( you might have better luck further east. Glad to see someone in my area on here. Taking the ignition to a lock smith might be your best bet.

i just noticed u were from junction city. I've only been around here for about a month now. I'm going to school at k-state. As for riding, now that i have a key, i took my bike to Motorcycle Surplus to put some new rubber on the back. I also need to relocate my RR so i have a more dependable ride. But i'd like to ride sometime.....
