OEM Trunk/Saddlebag Key Blanks

For years I have been trying to get a duplicate key made for my OEM Suzuki top case and saddle bags. The key is marked "Soft". After trips to many dealers and locksmiths, a solution was finally found - ilco X83, also marked MB39 and "For Mercedes"

Another blank opened the lock, but was hard to turn (not recommended).
ilco X230, also marked MZ29

The following did not work.
ilco X226, HYD12, and countless others

For those in the San Diego area, Convoy Street Locksmith Shop took the time to compare many blanks, cut and test the ones that might work, and trash the ones that didn't. I hope this helps my fellow Vstrom riders!

06 WeeStrom and a bunch of others

Would it be easiest (you think) to purchase that blank through a mercedes dealer then? Provided I save up the $400 they'll charge for the blank at a dealer.
