Just FYI, a lock smith could pick the seat lock in a few minutes.

Did you get your manuals & stuff in the briefcase-like thingy? Maybe check all the pockets in that to see if there's an orange key in there? (Doh! 205!)

Don't you just need the plastic keycode card to get a new key made from the dealer? I thought the orange key was just for programming the new key to the immobiliser......

I didn't know i should have received one. Naturally, my dealer says it was provided (it wasn't). The dealer says he's willing to have his service guys tear down the bike to get to it.
This orange key business is pretty inconvenient - especially when u realize you don't have one. What a crock! I'm grabbing a beer and headed to the garage. Somethings gotta give. This is one morning I should have stayed in bed.
I don't think your dealer is correct. AFAIK the 2008 and earlier bikes did not come with an orange key. This was only introduced with the 2009 on MY when the immobiliser was also fitted.

However, glad to know you've solved the problem.

Damn dude, sorry to hear that. Where your ABS (if you have that) there is a little water drainage, might be worth getting a bendable magnet and fishing it up there, hopefully you can connect with it and then with some pliers pry them out the hole... Or I would immediately order up a new ABS bucket and start cutting (carefully).

And FYI, the dealer gave me three keys, 2 black 1 orange. That's BS if they only gave you 1. They also gave me a "READY TO RACE" shitty briefcase/backpack, if they gave you something like that check the pockets.

Good luck, hope you get it out.

Thanks guys.
Oh... glossed over it, glad you got it sorted!
