New key without Immobiliser
on: March 23, 2021, 11:13:45 AM
My 2019 has the keyless ignition. Nice for starting the bike but a real pain when I need to refuel or want to get under the seat. There's also the issue that if I use the key fob to unlock the seat I could leave it in there, the bike would start but the key could then fall out and I wouldn't be able to restart it!

I've also got keys for disk lock, chain, boxes etc so I'd like to switch it all to 2 sets, the fob that can stay nice and safe in my zipped up pocket and "the rest". "The rest" would be a lot more portable without that giant fob attached!

Does anyone know where I can get a blank that I can then get cut? I don't want to use one of the spare keys if I can help it because I'd like it to be able to open things but not start the bike, that's also why no immobiliser although I guess one with an immobiliser that I didn't get programmed would work as well. A dealer would probably charge as much as a new bike but maybe that's the only (non-economic) option!

Your local locksmith should be able to get you a blank that is the right shape for your needs.

I've used them in the past for all sorts of oddball keys.

I did that and they didn't have a blank that matched.  I'll have to try a few others in the area but the couple of online suppliers I contacted either couldn't be bothered to answer or couldn't provide one and so didn't answer, and they both said they provided keys for Triumph Motorcycles.

For my Gen 2 I got a blank key from my Triumph dealer & got it cut by a local locksmith.

Gary at Key2Code says they can provide one so it's on order. £14.99, cut to the key code.

It won't have a transponder but I didn't want one. :046:
