To all Burgman Lovers:
Does any body know the best way to find the replacement spare key? After my last trip to Canada I miss placed it and I can not Find it
I followed this advice, got two keys w/magnets for my 650, and had the locksmith cut both keys. Both work, so now I have three keys that will open the shutter, in case someone tries with a screwdriver and succeeds, or if I lose one.
This is an old post below...
and it worked great for me.
Just be sure to order the right blank, the one for the 400...if I remember right, it was a bit tricky knowing which one was for which bike at the site where I ordered them.

Just wanted to let everyone know that if you want to make a copy of your key, complete with the magnetic code for the shutter, there is a way to do it.
You must first buy a key blank (I would recommend getting 2) that includes the magnetic head. These can be purchased either on e-bay or direct from
These key blanks come with the magnets needed to code the shutter key.
For instructions on how to code the magnets, go to:

and down load the instructions. They are setup as a picture that you can save. Once you have the key blanks, decoding the magnetic head becomes pretty easy.
The lower part of the key can be created at any hardware store that does keys. These key blanks are extra long so that pushing they into the lock to open the seat does not require any modification of the key. They actually look nicer that the keys that came with my 400 and they work with both the 400 and the 650.
I created a copy key that I use all the time. The two original keys are home, safe with my other documents that belong with my scooter.
