I realise this is now a very old topic, however it's been really helpful so I thought I'd give it a natural bump.

I passed my unrestricted in July (17) I learned having never been in a bike before. As luck would have it not one of my lessons nor my test was in the wet. Since passing pretty much rained constantly. I've been really struggling in the wet and do d myself tensing up. It's got to the point where I'll just take the car of the roads are wet. This post has pushed me to get out!

Great forum this. Such a helpful bunch!!

So what about when you order luggage, bike parts etc ?
The seller still has your personal details and knows you've got a bike.
Maybe you shouldn't be buying anything online if you're that paranoid.


Hello any one awake in there


HE DOES HAVE YOUR FUCKING KEY NUMBER AND A COPY OF IT IN HIS POCKET SHOULD HE CHOOSE TO COME AROUND AND NICK IT.


I think that might be the slight difference with order parts or luggage on line. happy purchasing over the festive season.

The price the supplier Dusty used is not too bad. £9.99 for a Gen 1 Fazer key. Depending on their packaging, first class signed for is £1.75 for a small letter, £2.08 for a large letter so basically it's £8.00 for the key.


Cutting from a photo is simple enough if the trader has the required software & hardware. Also, knowing which vehicle the key is for is a head start.
Of course, a key can even be made by hand!


This leads to being aware that leaving (any of) your keys on the bar, shop counter, etc. unattended or unwatched is a real no-no these days as a thief only needs a decent photo of your key to make their own & help themselves to your bike, house contents, whatever!
There is evan a mobile phone app. which will scale the key for you.


Caution is also advisable when using any postal method as the there party by default will know where your house & bike, etc. are located!


As a price guide...Part of my business is key cutting (though I only cut from your key). My Fazer 1 keys are £4.00. Places like Timpsons are about £7.00-£8.00.


Yamaha barrels are renowned for being fiddly as they are on top of the yolk so prone to moisture ingress. I spray GT-85 into mine regularly which helps a lot!


Caution is also advisable when using any postal method as the suppler will know your house address & where your bike is.

Damn good point.


Sat Nav, your post code, van and its gone.

Both my bike (FZS 600 2003) keys start with an 'A' and have four numeric digits.
But don't risk coming round my house to nick my bike as I have Rottweiler and even that is scared of my Mrs.  :eek
