Hey all. Been trolling a bit, but now I'm stuck and wanted some help. I lost my only motorcycle key (2006 suzuki gsx-r 750) and am not sure the best way to get a new one made. I don't have the key code for the bike (second owner). I had a spare cut from my original on a non-suzuki key that never worked well (have only been able to get the bike to start once using it).
My first thought was to take out the trunk lock and have a key cut from that at a locksmith. Well, i did that and it works great on the trunk lock but doesn't work in the ignition. Any ideas to get a key cut short of taking out the ignition (which looks like a pain to do) and having a key cut from that?
Thanks in advance for all your help!

Save up around $299 and go get new switch kit. Or check on ebay for a good deal. Not sure the year you have, but the new bikes are set up that if you are having problems with your key you have and try to start it you may blow the fuse inside the key switch. If you do that your going to be buying a new set before it will start again.
I'd appreciate it if you could tell me what dealer could have a key shipped to me provided i show proof of ownership as this seems like the easiest way to get an original key. All the dealers that i've called have told me that there is no link between VIN and key code and the only dealer who may potentially know the key code is the original dealer who sold the bike if they save them.
I called a locksmith to come out and cut one from the ignition. Said they can't get out here until monday unless i want to be charged extra. Any advice in the meantime would be appreciated. Thanks!
i went there in person because i wanted a second key for my bike. they tried to cut a copy from the original but it didnt work, so they got my vin number and registration (plus i rode the bike there to try the first key they cut) and fuckin-BAM! i had a key a week later straight from Japan
where is the little tag that was on the key......for future take said tag and put it next to something valuable(NOT YOUR BIKE), and yes if the key is cut well then it will work snag free for the whole bike.
I called all action motorsports and they looked up the VIN and he said there's no keycode for the bike. Apparently, dealers can register a VIN to associate with a keycode, but this dealer had not. He was able to tell me the dealership that the original owner bought the bike from (suzuki of durham). I called them and they are unfortunately closed (since jan 15, 2010). I guess i'm stuck with a locksmith coming to cut this thing.
