Spare Key Blank

When I bought my 2009 Bonneville it came with only one Ignition key and no fork lock keys. The key was the one with the key code attached to it so I thought I was lucky in that respect. Until I checked with the dealer I found out it was going to cost $45 for a spare key. That sent me on a search and I have some good news about a new key blank that's now available. My Locksmith said that this is a fairly new blank. Its made by JET model # KA33 and a perfect fit. It says Kawasaki on it. Its a better fit than the Ilco # KW15BP which has been mentioned here on the forum. The new copy cost me $4.50, good deal. Hope this helps someone else.

Good to know. Coincidentally someone at the Technical Talk section is asking that very question about key blanks:

I know that the OEM key for the fork lock is rubbish as mine snapped in half within a month of purchasing my bike. found a fork lock key blank supplier recommended by someone on this forum and it has stood the test of time

is that JET model key for the ignition or fork lock?

When I bought my bike new I had 2 extra sets of the keys made at a local key maker, all the keys that were made worked perfectly, this was at just a normal key maker store, is there something different about 2009 keys compared to 2005 keys?

As far as the ignition key, yep that's the same one my local locksmith used for mine. What I love about it is that I installed new signals that are tiny and they interfered with the stock key. I took the new one, ground the head almost completely off and drilled a new ring hole. Works great.

Bonza, I remember a thread a while ago about the fork lock key, but never saw an answer. Where did you find it? No one here stocks them. They suggested eBay, but that locksmith refuses to cut keys from another vendor (can't remember why)

Thanks!
I'm in the same position and have been walking around terrified that I will loose my only key.

I think that the key changed about 2006.
