I recently bought a 2007 VTX 1300C. It only came with one key, and I'm looking to have another made. Any tips on the best approach. Is there a good source for blanks to have one cut locally? Or is this something a dealer neeeds to do? Thanks.
My dealer did it for me, cheap (2 for 1 price). I had 2 copies, but I wanted extra because I was going to cut one to do the key mod. Once they do it, they will document your key number, and they can remake the key without an actual copy on hand.
They DIDN'T have the black base keys, only the all metal keys.
The hardware key blanks are more brittle than the Honda OEM key/Blanks. Use the hardware versions as your spares not everyday use. That is what I do. You can do a search here on the forum about the aftermarket keys information.
