The company reviews are good, from people who bought the burgman key. I would think it wouldn't be too hard to match up the magnets. If they repel, install like that. If they attract, turn it around.

haven't been there , but are the reviews on the same company's web site? or have they been independently verified , ie not marketing ploy by company ever since my ex gf told me I was her first and I found out she had 2 kids in school at the time I tend to want independent verification , but heck she was 36 at the time, not impossible to believe, right :oops:

Good idea. Then leave your original one as the spare. Just don't lose it, again! :wink:

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

http://www.wholesalecarkeys.com/

These key blanks come with the magnets needed to code the shutter key.
For instructions on how to code the magnets, go to:

http://burgmanriders.com/forum/burgman- ... cover-key/

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.

Thank you indeed for a well rounded feedback. However on the instruction of coding the key magnet, will you please provide a direct link to the pdf file or the instruction posted? the link that you provided is the general link and I was not able to dig out the info...
Again thank you for a real conclusive feedback and your additional help is highly appreciated.
Sincerely
Thomas
