    Call a locksmith. If they are good they can work miracles. They can pick the lock at the seat & get to the harness clip holding the switch. They can recut the tumblers in your ignition & seat switches so that whoever finds or has stolen you keys will not work anymore. Don't forget the steering head lock either.

    been there dont that.. if you are careful and use some needle nose pliers you can remove most of the side cover and use the pliers and some patience to pull the cable to remove the seat.. then take the ignition to a lock smith..

    also there are a lot of mobil lock smiths that will come to your house to cut a key for it depending on where you are..

    i didnt have a key code and went thru this last spring..

    good luck..

    apparantly you key code is written by hand in your manual or in the original paperwork with the bike.. if the dealer is good.. if not your sol..

    Like "deverandson" stated. The dealer should be able to cut you a key. Just show proof that your the legal owner and that should be it. That's the whole purpose of the key code. You get the code with the keys and Suzuki is supposed to keep it on file.

    Go this route first- retrace your steps. It has to be there.

    You can pull that side cover back enough to manually pop the seat off.

    Been there. Pulled the side cover out,grabbed seat latch cable with needle nose,remove ignition switch assembly,took to locksmith who broke the heads off the security screws(not his fault).He could make a key from there but couldnt fix broken screws. I took the ignition casting and drilled and retapped those little suckers on a drill press and brought it back to him to reassemble all in the same day. $75.00.

    I'd try the locksmith but as others said the key is where the bike is.

    Friend once lost his key and about 2 weeks later someone asked him if he had ever found his key. Thing was the guy had never told anyone he had lost the key and when he asked him how he knew he had lost the key the fella pointed to his fork lock where the key was in the lock saying either you lost it or thats not the smartest place to carry a spare

    I loose my keys all the time. Actually, every time I put my keys somewhere other than where they are supposed to go, I loose them. The first step to finding lost keys, at least for me, is to find something else to do. The more I think about where I lost the keys the harder it is for me to think rationally about finding the keys.

    The next step is to start cleaning. Clean my helmet and put it in the helmet bag... What's that jingling? - Lost keys.

    Clean out my tank bag. Pick it up and look what's underneath. Lost keys.

    Put my jacket on a hanger instead of the coat rack in the basement. Why are my keys hanging on the coat rack under my jacket?

    Your keys can't be far from your bike, or your safety gear, or dirty clothes hamper, or the tray where you put your loose change.

    Just be patient. it will come to you and you'll safe a few bucks!

    When I picked up my '07 it came with two keys and a tiny piece of black plastic (30mm x 10mm) that had the key-code numbers melted into it.

    old thread, but i ran into this problem, still haven't found my keys....

    went to stealer, .... my dealer did not keep record of the key stamp .... and does not cut keys... another dealer that is much better, does cut keys and said sure give them my VIN and they looked it up... key code not on file in system, and i guess thats where my stealer went wrong without having them on file.

    So had to get a locksmith pick it and make me a set. 130 bucks to my house and make 2 keys. o well lesson learned.

    (btw i did take off the helmet lock and (has tamper proof on it btw) and bring it to 2 locksmiths.. neither could make a proper key that worked in ignition.. worked for helmet lock but not ignition / gas cap.. weird)

    The good: I have extra keys for all my vehicles in the gun safe.

    The bad: I can't remember the combination for the gun safe!

    Not really, but make some spares now that you found it!

    When I got my new M90 I recorded the key code from the tag in my owners manual. I also emailed myself the code to my gmail account. A few weeks later I couldn't find my keys - I couldn't find the owners manual either. I retrieved the keycode from my email and a local locksmith made me a key for only $3. Whew! A week later I found my keys.

    Gmail has practically unlimited storage and the search feature is very fast. I always email myself important information that I need to have accessible quickly.

    Here's the DIY.

    I know it's more difficult on the 9 but I had a lost key situation on a cross country trip with my 1500 Intruder. I found a blank at a local hardware store. I removed and dissassembled the lock. and here's the key part (punn intended). If you put the blank key in the tumbler it pushes the tumbler pins out the side of the tumbler housing in the exact pattern of the key that works in it. Put a piece of stiff paper or light cardboard along side the pins and trace the pattern indexing the distance from the shoulder of the key. Then cut out the pattern on the paper, tape it to the key in the proper location and trace the pattern on to the key with a marker. Then cut or file the pattern into the key. You only have to do 1 side, but then the key will only work 1 way, you can't flip it over. You can test it in the tumbler before reassembly. when all the pins are even with the housing your done. Just reassemble everthing. Then you can have more double sided keys cut from that edge at any key maker. Cost me $2 for the blank and about 2hrs work.

    You might have to get creative to get the tumbler out, but this can be done with any edge tumbler type key.
