Hi everyone. Just bought my first bike, an '86 GS-550.
The owner lost the keys but told me I could remove the ignition switch and get the code on back to give to the dealer and they would make a new key.
Others have told me the same but when I called the only Suzuki dealer I know of here in Honolulu, they said it was'nt possible.
Anyone know the answer?
I already have the switch out.
I guess if all else fails I could get a really good lock smith to make a new key?

There is no code on the switch that I am aware of. However, Suzuki (proper) should be able to find your key code by looking up your VIN (maybe, it might be too old). If they can, Suzuki can send you the proper key. I had lost the key to a bike of mine and was able to get a new one from Suzuki in this manner.

To let everyone know I got my key made today.
I called a Suzuki dealer and they said that they don't cut keys in house. They use a locksmith. I found a locksmith and he did find the code on the lock. He made the key in about 10 minutes. Now I need to get a few mechanical things ironed out and I'll be riding soon.
Thanks for all the help so far.
