My first thought is "only $100"??? TAKE MY MONEY!!!! The keyless fobs on the new bikes are something like $350 and you only get one with the bike when new. That and one plastic key with a chip for emergencies like before.
Sorry though, I've got not usable advice other than to keep calling locksmiths.
Hello Irj975. This might not help as I am in the UK, but I recently bought a set of panniers which came with only the little plastic key which BMW used to supply. I found a guy on EBay who cuts BMW keys from a photograph. So I sent him a picture of the plastic key and paid £10, and hey presto, a key came in the post. Rob.
upon further review, there's the 'handy baby' key programmer, but by the time to acquire it, set it up, learn it, acquire a chipped key, get that cut, mess around some more.. way past the break even point for 1 key.. so to the dealer it is $100 and done
My bike also came with one key, and no plastic wallet key. I went with the dealer option - it took about a week and was worth it, considering how much it would have cost had I lost the one key and was on a trip.
Interesting how the number of keys supplied seems to change over time and in different parts of the world. When I bought my 2013 GT it came with two normal keys plus the little plastic emergency key. When I bought my 2018 GT it came with two normal keys but no plastic key. Two keys are really useful. When I go touring I give my spare to one of my riding buddies and I keep his spare. That way if I lose my key I'm not stuck. The practise has got me out of trouble a couple of times.
