    Your bike still under hire purchase? If it is, shop should still have an extra key. Ask from them and go make duplicate. 2 copies, in case u happen to ever lose it again. Thats all i can advise to u.

    And oh.
    Slamat Hari Raya!

    Bad luck bro, just the other day this guy left his DRZ + Home + Office Keys on his DRZ seat, me and my friends saw and we were what the f**k? My friend tempted to take it for a ride, but in the end keep keys and leave note on his bike, this angmoh collected it in abit. Even offered to offer any thing within his abilities. Okay enough with side track.

    The other time I lost my electronic keys for my Camry, spare keys also gone.

    $4,400 was the ignition starter + new key price! Hope that comforts you.

    Maybe this advice abit late for u, but always have a spare key at home in case u lose it.

    I learnt it the hard way, BROKE my key for my Daelim Roadwin. Went to many locksmith to fix/make a new key with 2 halves of a broken key. All locksmiths say cannot, but the locksmith behind Regina shop there say they can try.
    They managed to make a new key based on the 2 halves of the key. Miraculously can fit into my ignition slot and start my bike.

    Although i was able to start my ride, it was such a hassle to run around locksmiths to make a new key.

    Now i upgrade to Suzuki GSR. Got it for 2nd hand also. only 1 key.

    What i do on the first day?

    Immediately go to locksmith and duplicate a key for safekeeping at home.
    Price of Duplicate key: $80
    Price of Ignition starter: Not sure but in the hundreds cos of its immobiliser.

    I found your note. That bike is mine. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I never lost my keys. Glad you and your friends didnt try to steal my bike with someone else's keys.

    Making a new ignition key is roughly $60. My friend key was "half-broken" in the keyhole and had to tow to workshop to fix it too. Good luck for u bro.

    To add on to my experience here for sharing.

    If you're like most people who have came to this thread, you've mostly likely lost all of your bike's keys. But hope is not lost, rest assured, because first of all - like what other forummers have posted above, there are definitely locksmiths out there who can fabricate keys for you even if you've lost all keys.

    I went for the expensive but quick (really quick!) option :
    I hit up google to search for many locksmiths, market rate for fabricating keys (without copying from any existing keys) is around $200. Some will quote $230 , some $300. I've got one super skillful and nice guy called Dickson Wong, which is a tad below the market rate.

    http://247lockexpert.net/about-247-lockexpert/
    +65 9844 4447

    Here's what you'd do, you call him up, explain the problem, tell him the bike's model and/or age (in case it's an ignition with transponder) , and he'll ask you to SMS him the location of bike, plate number.
    He will come to your bike, fix it on the spot, within minutes ! I didn't have a chance to see him work on it, because when i called him, i was still travelling on MRT some 45 mins away from my bike. 15 mins after calling him, i got a call back from him, i thought he's making a call to say he's found where my bike is, instead he's reported that job is done ! No damage to your existing ignition hole, just magic. Hassle free. Nice friendly guy to top it off, he'd even passes you the key cut number so that in the future if this happens again, just go to any locksmith shop and mention the key cut number + the bike model, locksmith will be able to fabricate key without being anywhere near your bike.

    He's made a comment that there are only 4 locksmiths on this island who has the same equipment as he does, and among these 4... he's the fastest.

    Note that he's able to fabricate the key on the spot because my bike ignition is without security transponder, this is usually the case for 20 year old Honda bikes like mine. For modern bikes with security transponders, it wouldn't be fixed on the spot, bike might have to be towed else where. Call up this locksmith to have an advice.


    Cheap but mafan option :
    From the posts above, if you have time, you may choose to :
    1. call up a tow truck, probably $30 - $40 . You'll probably have to spend some time waiting for tow trucks to come get you, chances are they are picking some other bikes on the way and make a convenient trip to your bike while "on the way".

    2. Then, send it to a locksmith's shop who knows how to fabricate motorbike ignition keys without having any copy of the original keys. This would be Goodluck locksmith at Kelantan lane. I went there to have a look, it was closed because it's late, but i got a phone number written vaguely near the door, try : 6298 3673. It's a small shop right beside Lim Ah Boy , and another one beside Regina. Both have the same name on the signboard (Goodluck locksmith) so i guess they're the same operators. Cost ? Not sure nowadays but the post above back in year 2010 says it's $30 .

    Note again, this is probably possible only if your bike is the age old type without the complexity of transponders like they would have in modern bikes. Call up the locksmiths to check what you should do before you put it on a tow truck right away.


    Hope this helps

    Hi guys, I lost my key recently and I came to this forum. My bike is Kawasaki Eliminator 125cc year 1999.

    I decided to go for quick option mentioned above. he came, made the key, and turned on the ignition, but unfortunately my head lamp didn't light on and of course my motor couldn't be started. So I asked him what could be the issue, he said it should be the battery. Though I went abroad for two weeks before this, I have removed wire terminals from the battery, so I doubt it. But I didn't have the multimeter to verify it. Neither did him. He said it wouldn't be the key issue, since the key can turn.

    No choice but to pay him the $180 and let him go. The next day I went to charge my battery but still it didn't work. So I took leave on Monday and towed my bike to my workshop, and my workshop said it is the key issue as this the turning is not smooth and it feels like it is forcing the contact. I called him to come but he said his schedule was full and he could only come on Tuesday. I can't take another day off so I left the motorbike there, and asked him to liaise with my workshop.

    So he came on Tuesday, got the key from workshop guy, dissembling and assembling the ignition lock few times and still couldn't make it work. Then he approached workshop guy, and workshop guy found that he has not assembled it correctly. The metal contacts are not fully matched. With that realization, finally he fix it.

    Sigh* I should have just towed it to the locksmith shop near LAB. Using quick option ends up wasting few more days and more $. My take is he is good in locksmith but not so expert in bike.

    Btw, the locksmith shop is called Goodluck locksmith, and opens from Mon-Sat 10am to 6pm. I asked them how much would it cost to make my bike key, they says $50. Heart pain lagi more...

    Couldn't find spare key and didn't want to risk it so followed advice here and went to Goodluck next to Regina... $60 for 3 mins work and key worked perfectly. Not cheap but better be safe. Mine had the HISS system.

    My take is: always make a spare key the moment you got the bike, even if it's an expensive one. Most key have at least dual purpose - iginition switch and fuel tank cap, some even helmet lock. Losing one is really troublesome.

    Keys can either get lost, or broke after many years of usage.
