Hi guys,
Can someone tell me where I could get another key or have one made for my Grizzly? I bought a used Grizzly and the seller only had one key. I would like to have a spare key just in case I misplace the one I have? Would I have to go to Yamaha to get a new one?


thanks
Aaron

To start with, it's always good to tell what Grizzly you're talking about. Makes it easier to give you a proper answer or advice. So a signature would be nice :wink2:

With my Grizzly 700 EPS MY2018 came 2 keys. One with a plastic cap and one without. The one without is supposed to be the spare key and got a number on it. If you want a "plug and play" key (ready to use) the dealer needs that number for ordering the exact same key for your Grizzly.
As you can see you can order the plastic cap (nr. 29) as a separate part. So if the key which you still have has that cap as well it must be possible to get it off. Maybe that key has a number on it as well. I didn't want to take my plastic cap of the key so I can't tell you if there is a number on it.

If you don't have that number I guess the dealer still can order a key but it won't be "plug and play" (ready to use) and you'll have to go to one of those shops where the can make a duplicate of the key. Of course you'll have to bring the original key with you!

Or maybe the dealer can order a "plug and play" key without having that number by using the VIN of your Grizzly.

In the worst case you'll have to order the complete Main Switch Assembly. (nr. 27)

Don't forget to ask the former owner if he still has that number, maybe written down somewhere. On page 4 - 1 of my Owner's Manual there is a picture of the Main switch and I wrote the number right there.

Your dealer will be able to get blanks, but nothing else. The numbers on the keys are useless to the dealer as they can't do squat with them. It's not like automotive where there is traceability with parts. In the parts diagram you'll notice you can order everything seperate except the keys. In order to get these you need to order a complete ignition assembly. Been this way forever.

You will need to get new keys cut. Most "good" key cutters will have a blank to fit. They are usually longer, but the shank is the same. I've had several keys cut this way.

I just bought blanks from a dealer and had a locksmith cut them. I wanted the keys to fit the Yamaha plastic shoe thingy, that I also bought at a dealer.

I want to get a second key made

I need to get a second key as well. I just tried searching for a part number for the blank. I see an A key and a B key. I am confused.



Do you guys have any idea where I can get the blank? I imagine one of the key companies make them for yamaha.
Do you know the part number?



I dont care if it says yamaha as long as it works. If the blank does fit into the plastic cap that is a bonus.


Any help is appreciated.

I have a lock Smith, not too far from me, that supplies the blanks, and cuts the key for @$6.00 each. The dealer wanted $35.00 each. I carry a spare in my wallet.

Does anyone know the part number for the yamaha key blank

I will buy it online and take it to a locksmith if I can find the part number.

I don't know the part number but I used to have a key machine at my auto parts store. It looks a lot like a ford blank. But I can tell you my local Wal-Mart has the same machine. A monkey can do it. match the key with the right blank, use code on blank for cartridge for machine, put key and blank in cartridge, hit red button.

A locksmith will do it with a more hands on machine, (read ……. requires skill) but you get a much more accurate result.

I guess technically one could take blank, some skill and a Dremel or small pneumatic grinder, and cut the key him/her self.

I have seen replacement lock cylinders not being assembled. Just a bag of "keys" to install into lock cylinder to match the key you have. Videos all over u tube about "keying" the cylinder so I wont go into all that …..

just my 2 cents

I stopped at Walmart, Home Depot and a TruValue hardware store. None of them had a blank that would work.


What auto parts store cuts keys? I am willing to try anything at this point.

I have a local locksmith that made keys for mine, and has the blanks. If you can get me the key info numbers, he might be able to code cut it, or mail it to me, and he can make copies.
If you can identify the key blank, get me that, and I can purchase them and have them mailed to you for cutting.
