Well guys, I lost my keys today, while at the dealer getting a service. I can start the bike without the keys, but my problem is I can't get into my fuel tank or my trunk. I've looked up ways around this, and the only things I am find is either, drill out the lock on the gas tank, and break the lock on the trunk. Now I really don't want to do any of that, mostly because I have a lock smith coming Sunday morning to pull a cut from one of the locks or ignition, but I want to ride tomorrow and Saturday with my local forum.

So does anyone here know a way I can bypass this, so I can get out there and ride??

Re-route the gas line to a can of Monster Energy?

[Thread drift]

How much work is it to install an after-market gas cap that doesn't have a lock?

Three bolts as long as you have the key...

@op if it were me, I would scrap the ride and wait for a locksmith. Also I believe that at least on my 05 the ignition and tank are two different types of lock with the same key. It would probably work best if the key were cut using the ignition.

Yes, get the key made from the ignition. The trunk (and possibly the fuel) lock only uses the end section of the key, not the whole length of the key.

The ignition has part of the origal key snapped off inside it. But too far in to grab with anything.
Sounds like I'm going to have to take the lock cylinder for the ignition apart. Oh joy.

Sounds like when part of the key broke off in the ignition you should have taken care of it then...

So from that point until now all anyone had to do to steal your bike was start it?
