    2012 dorsoduro 1200 key broken

    I broke my key in half yesterday, and I spoke to a dealer here in Texas about what my options are.
    They said I would need to buy a whole new lockset 350$ plus pay them 350$ to put it all together.
    Has anyone tried to maybe weild or try anything to put the key back together? Can I call aprilia and get a
    Replacement key through my VIN? any suggestions would be appreciated it just sucks the day before I was going to trade It in I break the key and have to pay 700$ to get it fixed. Thanks guys

    Maybe contact AF1 to inquire about a blank. There may be some sources on ebay also. Perhaps order two so you have a spare for next time. It should be a simple matter for a locksmith to cut new ones with the pieces once you have the blanks. good luck..T

    Further to this.... I just ordered a couple of spare keys for my Cagiva GranCanyon and oddly enough it seems that they are the same one for the Aprilia DD1200. See ebay item:

    I have the same problem. Cut the key in half by forcing it on the gas cap. My solution was to remove all the key tumblers - gas cap, and rear seat. I removed the cut half from the gas cap and slipped it into the ignition and glued the last 2 tumblers on the gas cap and seat lock after sticking the key in the tumbler to see how many spring locks remained open. I now use the cut key to operate the bike. I have the key on a lanyard, which I slip around a side mirror to make sure that the key does not fly out at speed.

    A simple matter to order spare key blanks and have them cut at your local locksmith. Always good to have spares in case of loss or damage. An ounce of prevention..... T

    bring them by.....I might be able to mount the broken pieces in the machine and make a copy. If its just the broken tip, that is easy, I do those all the time. Luckily the tip is the same on all of them.
