New key

My bike only came with one key. Found some on Amazon. Anyone know the charge for cutting? I know depends on where but in general.

Re: New key

It depends if it is a steel key blank or it's made of normal key material. If it's steel you're going to have a hard time finding a place to cut it. Guess how I found that out. Real BMW keys are usually steel but if you get the knockoffs made in China those are usually made of normal key material that any locksmith will cut. Put a magnet up to the blank and you'll quickly find out how difficult it will be to find someone who will cut it.

Re: New key

Here in Nordics you can walk into any lock shop or other places where they make keys and get a spare key while waiting.

Re: New key

Any key shop will have the brass blank that fits some BMW model cars that also fits the LT.

Re: New key

I ordered the key blanks from E bay. My local building supply store cut the key blanks for me and charged me $5.00, all is good.
