Can anyone outline the complete process for getting duplicate keys? There seems to be a variety of information in the posts on this board, but I can't find a description of the complete process. I went to my local Honda dealer today, and they had no clue. The parts guy, after searching his service records, talking to his service department, and finally calling someone at Honda, told me that there's nothing special about the keys; one just has to get a blank and have a locksmith grind a new one. I told him (I can't believe I knew more than my Honda dealer!) about the HISS system, and that keys have to be registered with the security system, that the manual claimed a maximum of four keys per system, etc. etc. No luck; all he could do is order me a blank for $40.00 and another $10.00 for the logo.
I'd sure appreciate some info from someone who's actually had new keys made. The book indicates that all I need to do is bring in my existing keys and the bike to a dealer. Apparently not around here.
