Rant about price of spare key


Arky217

Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 Big Bear and want to get a spare key for it. Turns out, that in my area, only the Yamaha dealer has the blanks and they want $7.50 !!! to make a spare key.

Even Honda, which is supposed to be pricey, only wants $3.50.

$7.50 to grind a spare key!; I can get a car or house key ground at Walmart for $1.50.

What gives with this outrageous price?

Welcome to the site Arky217!

I can appreciate your rant, but please avoid posting duplicate threads. You posted the exact same thread in 3 different areas. I removed the other 2. :wink:

As far as your key, that's what happens when it's only available at one place, with no competition...

key prices are crazy ... i have been charged as much as $13.00 for a key for a quad ... i buy alot of wrecked and non running machines and some times have no key for them .. the dealers i guess hold the rites to the atv's key market and we all get the shaft when needing 1 .. the local john deere dealer gets $10.00 for them and thats any key for there brand ... i guess we just gotta love getting the shaft when going to the dealer for stuff that only they sell...

So how would I get one for a big bear I bought used? I don't have the most legit bill of sale.. it won't be a problem to get a more official one, though

If you have a key and just want a copy for it, that shouldn't be a problem. If you don't have a key at all, just talk to a dealer and see what it would involve to get a key for it.

The first thing I would do is call the state police, give them the vin and see if you bought stolen property.

Next I would grab a used key switch with key off e-bay or the forums.
