New Versys Key Blanks for Sale...

Hey all,

I've got a bunch of new Ilco Key Blanks for sale which will fit the Versys and other Kawasaki models. I will attempt to keep these stocked permanently. The metal on these is brass and stronger than stock. We are sold out of the previous steel versions but the brass will be easier to cut at nearly any hardware store or locksmith. They have a good solid plastic head which is not as obtrusive as the OEM grey key.

https://www.motocyclops.com/buymisc/kawikey.html

- Silca Italy Kawasaki Key -



Purchasing is now handled through paypal so you know the transaction is secure and convenient.

We now are selling it in multiples of 1, 2, 4 and 6 keys.

1 Key - 5.00
2 Keys - 8.00
4 Keys - 15.00
6 Keys - 20.00

All prices include shipping to North America ONLY!

Because the cost is relatively low and international shipping is slow and expensive, those outside of North America are encouraged to find it available either locally or through an EU online retailer.

Check the website for more details...

Happy Trails!

HHAHAHAa whoops! The key is cool but it's not THAT cool. I'll have to do a better job with my proofreading.

Lou,

That error occurs depending on what browser you're using (I'm guessing Firefox?) There are several different security certificate issuers and not all of them are on all the "approved lists" of the particular browsers. All the message is telling you is that the site doesn't use a cert that recognized by your browser but the site cert it totally reliable and valid. It's entirely safe to approve the cert and you won't have any problems. Motocyclops uses no extra javascripts on the page and as soon as you enter the data you are taken to the crediting agencies page anyway.

In other words, it is totally safe and the error you're seeing is the result of certain browsers having deals with certain cert companies. See how much fun it is to run an online shop?

Bones, glad they got there in a timely manner! I should mention, I tried to have my keys cut at my local locksmith and they jumped up and down saying they don't cut real steel keys. Something about how steel messes up their cheap cutting wheels because the material is too hard? I'm thinking that's pretty lame because steel is one of the best and reliable metals to make keys out of.

I don't know if they're just trying to get me to order something from them or what but they wouldn't cut it so I'll have to find another shop. I know these are some good blanks but I guess nothing is easy when you want something of quality.

No shipping to Canada?
The stock key does bend very easily when left in seat unlock and bumped into...

Got my keys today. Thank you CC. Off to the locksmith tomorrow. I know that they will cut them cause they owe me. I gave them 3 Givi cylinders with keys as future trading stock.

Thanks

WHAOOOO, I got my DVD and keys today, I'm flying to DC tomorrow so I'm going to watch it on the plane... the keys look good, I think I am going to stash a blank somewhere on the bike and put my key code somewhere online or on my bike for an emergency, and the other one I think I might use it cause I like that it is smaller...

08 Versys 32+k and counting

Invader, I'll ship to Canada if you don't mind waiting a little longer for them to get sent out. For international postage I have to go to the post office, which I do only once or twice a week.

If you're cool with that then go ahead and order using the same page.

Paz,
CC

That's good news! I think my locksmith is just on crack or using ultra cheapo cutting wheels.

I went to the local Lowes and they didn't even understand why I was asking them if they cut steel keys... looked at me like I was from outer space or some ****.

Anyway, I think it's not a problem to cut these but but I just wanted to be sure and let you guys know anyway.

Paz,
CC

My locksmith was pretty upset that he didn't check the blank with a magnet first. Realized his mistake after he cut the first one. His normal machine cutter wheels are not meant for steel. He cut the second one on an older machine in the back. I played dumb - really steel, wow maybe it won't bend or break like the cheap oem keys.

I wonder if the larger Mega-lo Mart shops like Home Depot and Lowes are less likely to care about destroying wheels because they have deeper pockets to replace their consumables.

CC

P.S

Only five keys left as of this date. I'll place an order for s'more.

Don't bother going to Home Depot, Lowes et al, they can't cut these keys. They have some semi automated system with little boxes they load into the cutter. Took two people 15 minutes to decide they couldn't do it-but at least they recommended a good locksmith.

Local locksmith did it 2 minutes, they work great. Now have one key in my bike jacket and may hide one on the bike if I can find somewhere good-but not telling you lot

When I got my versys out of storage the gas cap lock was sticking. It was so bad that I was afraid I was going to break off the in the lock. After using some lube I got it to work but I still don't trust the key. When I saw this post I ordered a set of keys. When I got them I took them to a local hardware store and they had no problem cutting them. They only charged me $0.95! I like these keys much better than the Kawasaki keys. They feel much stronger and the smaller head is more pocket friendly. If the gas cap lock becomes hard to turn again I won't have to worry about the new key bending or breaking. I also lost one of my original Kawasaki keys, so I have a spare again!

BC,

There's no doubt the steal on these keys is superior to the factory's. Glad they worked out for you and were easy to cut. I had to go to four different shops to get mine cut and burned through two blanks before getting one that worked.

Anyway, riding season in finally here for those us above the tropical zones. Ride safe and have fun everyone!

Paz.
