Has anyone had a key replaced?

I have the number on a little tag that came attached to one of the keys with the bike:

B***312

(I wonder if the 312 at the end has anything to do with the model or is it just a fluke??)

Paul Feeney (importer) says they cant replace any keys using the number atached to the spare key - though in the manual it says to use this number for a key replacement!!

Any experience anyone!!!???

sorry but i am new here !!,automotive experience is that those numbers may represent a code for how the key is cut.the only people likely to have the code for this reference is usually a professional locksmith.also used to calibrate new locks/barrels if they are damaged hj

Hey Gazman,
I have recently acquired a friend closely affiliated with the Paul Feeney group so I will ask around for some further information on how they might be able to help you.

A good locksmith should be able to cut a key from the number. A locksmith told me that I should put that number on a piece of paper and carry it with me at all times so if I lost my key on the road a locksmith could replace it.

hahha this quote made me larf

chances are your miles from nowhere near a locksmith and it will be out of hrs
so you just as well carry an aa card or rac
you could program your key number into your phone on a text message saved in drafts or templates save carrying a bit of paper thats likeky to get wet well here in the uk

life is not measured by the number of breaths we take
but by the moments that take our breath away

If you have another key to copy, you can apparently use a Yamaha key as a blank (some have also used a Kawasaki blank)
