Inside the shutter are 3 magnets faced in the key "CODE". These 3 magnets pull PUSH 3 small steel balls out of dimples and allows the shutter to turn.

In the key's head are 3 magnets facing the opposite SAME way for the code.

I tested magnet polarity with a small pen magnet, then inserted key head with very light pressure, kind of floated in place, did this in both open/close positions, it appears as magnets are opposite pole, key is pushing out/falls off :unsure:, if the magnets were pulling at each other key would stay in place. I also lifted a 1/4oz with each individual magnet easily.
IOW they have a strong pull. This is unofficial, until more scientific testing and verification is done, just preliminary "Thesis" findings :rolleyes:. It would kind of make sense for magnets to oppose, otherwise they "could" pull magnets out of key head :unsure:

BTW found these possible solutions for key shutter locked, digging thru other post, either will require cutting key from scratch by a professional in the OP issue/case.

Well searching on my phone found this 😁


Have to be a certified locksmith, etc., to buy it 😖 and know how to use it 🤔, but I bet an avid DIY'er can make one for emergency use for his scooter. With a dowel a few cheap "rare earth" magnets and super glue, etc 🙄🤔🤫

Well, no word from O/P for a week :unsure:, hopefully is resolved.
IAC, I received my 2 Amazon/China key blanks today, very easy to set-up the magnets, best if you clamp key in a vise, etc. I used hemostat pliers and a toothpick to push into new key, just push until flush done, worked perfectly, will have it cut tomorrow and find a hiding spot on scooter. (y)

PS, work on a well-lit area and hold/clamp magnets firmly with pliers, they are very small and powerful magnets.

Here's how I figured out the shutter magnet locations, without using the oem key as a reference, kind of a lost key situation, the pictures explain how I did it, believe me, this is a tedious/steady hand/good eyesight process, will definitely test your patience, magnets are very strong, small and easy to lose, there's no spares o_O, the best tools to place magnets is wooden dowel with two-sided foam tape or your fingers, you can do one magnet at the time then move to a diagram or fixture like in pics below. Believe me it took a while to get the magnets in place for the pics, as they pull hard and stick together very easily :((n)

BTW, I don't find this info to be a "Security Breach", there's how to videos on YouTube, etc., kind of like the super-secret ignition switch resistor :whistle:, most professional thieves would know a quicker/easier way to defeat this system, one thing for sure it could save you a lot of money if someone closes your shutter :censored:

Note: The colors were enhanced for clarity with paint program, the permanent markers I used were flat/dull.

Well today was final "KEY" day :rolleyes: , finally got all the extra China/Amazon keys done for the Burgman, also cut a new OEM for the SW600, Locksmith I've used before cut all 3 for just $5 USD, worked perfect(y), grabbed a few key rings and gave him $10, Ace Hwd, charges $4 per key :eek: I did carry my vehicle titles to verify ownership, glad I did (y) I will hide a full working key in the scooters, just hope I remember where, later :rolleyes: Had a talk with locksmith about these magnetic keys, he said the code numbers on the locks will only get you the "Key cut diagram" from a website only available to Licensed locksmiths, etc. Not the magnet position for the shutter door. (n)

Maybe my ideas will help someone from getting robbed by stealership o_O
