The wind in your hair and the open road in front of you; motorcycles are a means of transportation for those free spirits that love to go fast. Whether you’re taking a ride around town or you’re going to take your bike on a cross-country road trip, there’s nothing worse than having unexpected problems while on the go.
Though motorcycles may differ from cars in many ways, one of the ways that they are incredibly similar is the classic issue of lost keys. For many, it doesn’t get thought of until it happens to them. Why would losing keys to a bike be a bad thing when there’s no door that you need to unlock? Sure, that’s true, but your motorcycle isn’t going to start without the key. So what do you do when you realize that you’ve misplaced or broken your motorcycle keys? The first thing is to call a locksmith!
Can locksmiths work on motorcycles?
A question that we’re asked frequently is whether or not our locksmiths will be able to work on motorcycles. The answer is — of course we can! Motorcycles are no different from any other vehicle with a locking system, so we do our best to not only educate our team on how to get the job done, but we ensure that they know how to do it well.
Why Rekey Your Motorcycle
There are quite a few reasons that people choose to rekey their motorcycles. It could be something as straightforward as having lost the key, but it’s not the only reason that we’ve had to work on rekeying bikes. For many, the idea of someone that they no longer trust, or no longer know, having a copy of the key is another reason to get your motorcycle rekeyed. Whatever your reason, CRS Locksmith can help you.
The Rekeying Process
The process of rekeying a motorcycle is pretty direct, especially when you’re working with a professional that has the proper tools and knows what they’re doing. We will start by removing the cylinder from the lock and using a selection of tools to adjust the pins. This makes it so that the pins match the new key. Aside from saving you time, trusting a professional with this task is one of the best ways to ensure your motorcycle doesn’t obtain any damage from you trying to do it yourself.
Given that all motorcycles are a little bit different based on the make and model of the bike, having a locksmith that specializes in motorcycles or has spent some time getting familiar with them is a bonus. Aside from that, all locking devices on bikes can vary. By hiring a professional, you’re truly saving yourself from hours of research and toying around for solutions.
