no key

Post by reitmeyer » Fri Jun 15, 2018 6:23 pm

I bought a 84 spree without a key. Found a cool youtube video on how to make a motorcycle key. I ripped into the spree and removed lock mechanism only to learn it is not like the video and I can't figure out how to remove the tumbler. Anyone know how to remove this? It appears pressed together. Have you had luck getting keys made off of the key code? If so, what site.

honda dealers will make keys, there are also a few ads on ebay that say they can but i've never had it done. as for the time being, connect the sold black wire to the solid red and it will act as if the key is on, make sure the black with white stripe doesnt go to green or the steel frame of the bike or there will be no spark.
I own a Honda Eve and a Honda Nifty Fifty.
Eve has the wiring harness from a nifty and a starter motor, since relying on kickstart isn't fun.

Agreed. The locksmith will make a proper key for about $5. I've also used the eBay services with great success (then found out the business was local).
