You better have a functioning spare key before you start fiddling with this because if you don't and you screw up, you'll need a new ECM and matching keys.

It's my understanding that the immobilizer keys disassemble like this:

and the transponder is inside somewhere. Remove it and install on your new blank.

I think that the immobilizer key blanks may also come in versions that don't disassemble. There they have a "blank" transponder and you must take the new blank and your functioning key to a locksmith for cloning. It's not clear to me that your blank is either type.

P.S. I see that there's now a service for people who have an ECM and don't have a functioning key but it's expensive.

Was that just a roll pin holding things together? Your pictures show two black parts that fit into the head of the key. Is the smaller part the transponder?

Us Yanks don't get nifty things like that transponder. Apparently, sportbikes never get stolen over here in the United States. :wait

Do both of the previous two posters have genuine US model bikes? The immobilizer blanks cost Suzuki more and offer no additional functionality in a non-immobilizer bike. I suspect that both of you have non-original keys if they actually are the immobilizer type. GIX750 is particularly suspicious if he doesn't have the extra key that came with the bike. As the first picture shows, reproduction blanks are hard to tell from OEM.

^If you have an immobilizer equipped model, a key cut off an original won't start the bike until you get the transponder programmed to match the original (assuming that there's a transponder inside the head). Locksmiths with cloning devices can do that. If you don't have an immobilizer, any key that turns the ignition switch should allow the bike to start.

Ron Ayres lists the US bikes as getting the 37146-41G10 non-immobilizer key for around $20. The 37146-41G00 immobilizer key is almost $50. I've seen Chinese non-immobilizer blanks sold for as little as $.12 shipped.

You're playing Russian roulette if you have an immobilizer equipped bike and no spare key (I recommend two spares kept in different locations). You're in big trouble if you lose the key.

If you buy on ebay make sure that it comes with the immobilizer transponder. The guy that was selling the blanks that I show in post #2 was selling them without the transponder. At that time I didn't understand why a disassemblable key was being made and what his comments about moving the part referred to. It was only later that I realized what he was talking about.

In the US, American Suzuki will sell you a precut key if you have the key code (metal tag supplied with the bike). That would be very nice in terms of getting a spare key with the transponder already programmed (probably also pricey). That service may not be available elsewhere but it wouldn't hurt to inquire.

maybe i'm missing something but i don't need the transponder from my present key swapped over to a new blank. i need a blank with a transponder so it can be cut and programed to my bike.

You can buy 37146-41G00 from any Suzuki dealer (it'll be pricey). There seem to be several suitable keys for sale here. But, as previously stated, make sure that it includes the transponder.

giz750 whats the ecu number on your bike
it will finish with something like 41g00 or 41g10 or 41g50, 41g60, 41g70

g10, 50 and 70 are immobiliser models and usually found in SA, AU and EU
