Can I get this done at a locksmith or do I need to get a Suzuki blank from the dealer? My one key has the serial or key number on it.
Thanks for any help!

I've had them made at the locksmith kiosk at the mall, they had the blank, just plain flat metal, they cost about $2.00 I carried one in my wallet, for emergency, and under the seat I had a spare key for my givi top box and bags.

Yea, I had one made at the locksmith, they had the blank in stock. Think it cost like $5, and took all of 2 min to make. As long as they have the blank it shouldn't be a problem.

Blank #: ilco, X241, SUZ18

Hope this helps

A buddy called me the other day because he lost his keys.
He wanted me to pick open his Givi's (He had a spare inside for the Givi's)and cut him 2 blanks he bought at the dealer.
He paid 50 bucks for just the 2 blanks uncut, guess it hurt his feeling when I started laughing.:green_lol:
I had bought a pack of 10, just plain blanks for .79 cent a piece to hang in my shop at work, since I have 3 Suzuki's at home and my riding partner has 2.
I'm a locksmith at a hospital so have all the toys to make keys.
Next time he will call sooner!

Wow, big bucks from the dealer! I found a guy in Los Angeles today, 3 bucks each, they work perfect!

Hi, Yes, the OEM replacement cost for blanks is outrageous at best. I have a spare or two made every time I get a new bike at my local locksmith or at Walmart if it happens to be closer and like others have mentioned pay $2 - $3 for them,

They work very well,

Just check the key right away when you get it cut to be sure it is right and if not get it re-cut at the same place for free,

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,
Blair

This is the same blank I had cut at a local locksmith. He charged $ 1.75 each.

After, I ground down the head of the key and drilled a hole for a key ring just to make the key a littler smaller.

KEYS

there are 2 key blanks that fit my DL650

one is longer than the other

it took the longer key, to operate my ignition

the shorter blank, when cut, operated the gas cap & the seat latch

just observations

I just bought my '07 650, and the original owner couldn't find the original key with the #s stamped in it. Do you think I could get a spare made from the spare? Or do I need the original with the #s stamped in?

Thanks.

A locksmith can cut a new key from the one you have. What you are calling a spare is one of two keys that came with the bike. The key number is on a tag only, not on a key.

Local locksmith was able to make copies of my keys for the bike and the luggage without issue. Keep a set that fits my wife's bike under the seat of my bike and a set that fit my bike under the seat of her bike. The idea being, if on a ride/trip one of us lose our keys, we can get going using the other set of keys. Hopefully, we don't both lose of keys at the same time. :yikes:
