    Default Broken flip out key

    Whilst on holiday I managed to break the flip out key blade on the fob for my Multistrada Enduro. It snapped at the point where it enters the holder swivel.

    Ducati were unable to help with a replacement as the computer only shows the complete fob at 112, without cutting or reprogramming. I only needed the blade. Local, central belt of Scotland, locksmiths were unable to helps I turned to eBay.

    I found a company from Kent who advertised key cutting for various motorcycles which worked by sending them a picture of your key, I read the reviews and it seemed genuine so I pressed the buy it now, sent a picture and a confirmation email of my needs.

    About 30 minutes later I recieved a phone call from them. The eBay listing is for a normal key not a flip out blade, which I needed. However I was told if I send both parts of the broken blade he will hand make a blade to suit which may just need a small amount of final adjustment to fit the swivel on the fob. I also decided to continue with the purchase of a normal key, for the fuel cap and panniers.

    This was at lunchtime on Friday. Saturday afternoon and the key arrived and it works perfect. I've still to send off the broken parts and I'll update this with the result. Service like this I feel deserves recognition, especially when it cost me 9.98.

    The eBay link if it works is

    The replacement blade for the fob arrived today. A quick file just to adjust the fit for the flip out holder and its job done. Very happy with the service and finished article.

    Sometimes you just have to trust people, like us old folk did in the old days, it's a sad reflection on modern life I fear..

    For information: If you need a blank non-transponder key to suit your MTS (and probably a few other Ducatis) for the fuel cap, seat, panniers, your locksmith will need a ZA14P blank, normally for Aprilias.
