Luck

Well I guess there will be more delays on riding my bike. As soon as we went home from a nice fun Sunday we discovered that our house has been robbed. They took my wife's 27" iMac and my daughters MacBook and jewelry. But the most important thing is they nuckin' took my backpack which included both keys to the Agusta.

I need to know what to do. Should I try to get spare keys or do I just get a new ignition and trunk lock?

Get a new ignition. Now they might know your licence plate and can come and get it where ever it is parked.

And if it is nicked with the keys, your insurance company will not pay.

Sad to hear that. But at least they didn't take your precious.

Cheers,

Thanks. Does the ignition have some kind of immobilizer or is it just a regular key that I can just swap the ignition and trunk cylinder? I haven't even registered her yet. I should be getting it in a couple of days.

No immobilizer....just swap ignition and plug in. If you pull the ignition out of the bike and bring it by a locksmith see if they can re-key it for you. Probably not, but in the off chance they can its going to be much less than buying another ignition.
And yes, they can remake you a key for your gas cap from either the ignition or the gas cap itself. Have had to bring my tanks down to a local locksmith a couple times which they didn't mind picking for free as long as they made a key for me.

Thanks I will try that. Any recommendations as to where I can get a key with the MV Logo?

We were robbed once. It wasn't the loss of stuff as much as the invasion of our sanctum that was so upsetting. The violation of our home.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

You are right. Just the feeling that somebody unwanted was inside my home. Overall at least the family is all ok.

You live in Guam? - 170k or so people and 210square mile island?

What excatly are they going to do with a stolen MV (apart from go to jail)? I would imagine over there it would stick out like the proverbial dog's testicles!


But for $110 , that's cheap peace of mind.

$110 is very cheap, buy it from CAG and save a lot of headach trying to get a key made. And get a decent alarm system for your home.
