Key blanks

I usually get a couple extra keys made for any bikes I own. I looked online to see what the part number was for the 2012 DL650. I think it was at MRCycle. It showed the list price for a key blank at $57.92, and discounted to $49.34 at this website. That's beyond stupid, Suzuki. I'll stop by my local locksmith to see if they have the correct blank for this bike. I know it has to be the long style because of the recessed ignition switch. Ron Ayers website used to have the fiche for the 2012 and newer, but now it only shows up to 2011.

For a generic key blank with no chip? That is a ripp off!

Will the gsxr keys work? Those blanks are on amazon for really cheap.

I went to my local locksmith and bought a new key and had it cut for the bike, at a whopping $3.41. I'll have to do the same, grind the shoulder down so it'll fit in the ignition switch. It works okay for the seat and fuel tank as it is.

Is there a chip in the OEM key, and doesn't the ignition need that? Certainly your $3.41 doesn't have it, or does it??? Please report if it works to start the bike!

Glees sold in North America do not have an immobilizer chip.
