So I was opening this wine bottle with my key

and my bike key broke in half. So,
A) can I superglue it (its kinda bent) and try to make a copy?
B) Is it possible to make a key for the ignition lock?
C) do I have to get a whole new ignition lock?

Guess I'll get this out of the way.. Bike key to open wine bottle. Why?!


Not sure if the dealers can order you a key from the factory based on VIN. I'd take it to a locksmith first.


By the way, I believe your language skills were requested in the Off Topic forum. lol

I was in Austin in a hotel at like 3am and didn't feel like going to Wallyworld to get an opener. I have been successful in opening one with rocks in west Texas, so I thought key would be far less of a challenge.

No, I just meant.. You have such a huge key ring, why not any of the other keys on there?

Good luck with the bike key though. That sucks!

a: dont do that.....
b: it is possible, i would call the dealer and ask
c: no

Call the dealer and see if they can pull a key code from the vin and cut you a key. If they want to charge you more than 50, PM me and i can come originate you one.

In this case isn't based on the VINO number?
Well did you get the bottle opened?

+1 is so i hope you covered up we dont need anymore of you running around

But seriously dude you have a ton of keys on that janitors key ring WHY the did you use your bike key? I bet you used it so you could be all like " Im use my motorcycle key to open this bottle of wine" to help ease those panties off. lol

I hope it all works out for you man.

Take it to a locksmith and see what he can do. There is one at Veterans Memorial and W.Mount Houston that has made spare keys for every one of my bikes except the Aprilia.
