I hate to bring this up..but if you spent more time looking for the key and less time playing on that silly computer you may find it..

If you put it in your pants pocket look down beside the seats in whatever you drove to the shops...mens pants pockets are designed to tip upside down when we sit in car seats or sofa's

Wow! Who knew it was that easy?
Ok, I've checked around the seat of my truck, no luck
Even turned my recliner upside down and checked all around.

I don't have a helmet lock. The local Honda Powersports said I need the number off the ignition. So, the Clymer manual says 'center punch each of the two break off bolts. Then drill the bolt heads off the bolt shanks..'
Seems like all I'm doing now is making the hole larger and deeper and the head(s) not breaking off.

ONE MORE TIME! Get at least a set of THREE keys for your bike. TWO with the numbers inscribed on them. Lock one of them up at home! Put the numbered key SOMEWHERE on the bike that you can get to, even with some problems of doing so. Use the NON NUMBERED key in the ignition. You will never have to walk home or hot-wire the bike again. Think about it.

what about the fork lock?
i wouldn't think you'd have to do all that to take the ignition cover off..but i dont know...ive never really looked at mine.
