R1 Lost key :(

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by josh_182, Dec 26, 2012.

  1. Hi guys, I have lost my key for my R1, I was only given one key when I bought it. I've read online that there are master keys that are red that you need to program the bike, I don't have this key or the contact details of the guy I bought it from 12 months ago. Anyone know what happens in this situation??

  2. Use the search mate. Been covered a few times. In short, there are guys that can cut new keys and reprogram your ecu. One of them has a banner ad here on nr I think. Have a hunt around and see how you go.
  3. Buying a yamaha witout the red key could indicate it was stolen. Dealers charge about $3,000 to fix this..
