Took my Silverwing to Apache Motorcyles (Honda dealership ) in Phoenix to get a second key made.

(since I'm old and misplace everything now...)

Not an OEM Honda key, with the plastic body, Just an ordinary ILCO blank I can buy on Ebay for....$3 or less in quantity.

($2.72 qty 1-4, $1.36 >4)

@#$#@$ STealership charged me $16 for a non-Honda duplicate.

FREAKING HIGHWAY ROBBERY IMHO.

Agree? Disagree?

You can also develop certain good, repetitive habits, such as where you put your keys in certain situations, and those go a long way towards less expensive living. :)

Humour

This thread will also serve as the humour section.

Duraglass a filler for under water use, is $115- at the marine store, and $77- at the plastics store.
Guess where I buy it.

Most of the time I have a good idea of the price before I buy.
New boots at fancy shoe shop or bike shop. About $250-
New boots at Army store, $89- Guess where I buy them.

Likewise with synthetic oil, and much more.
Sometimes haste, and or location will cause the bill to rise.

For my Victory, I visited a local locksmith. They used a Kawasaki KW-15 blank to make me a new key for about $3. I don't even want to know what a new key would have cost me at my dealer. According to Victory lore the KW-14 would have been my best bet but the locksmith did not have that blank in stock.

New bits

Yamaha shop quoted me $25- each for fork seals, and $45 for a clutch cable for my XS400.
The seals are around $7- at BC Bearing, and clutch cables are $22- at other places. I really just wanted to say hi to the parts girl, and look at new bikes.
