    Guitar mod

    I didn't like to grab a key to get the left saddlebag open, so I made this permanent key by taking a hacksaw to a spare key and using Gorilla Epoxy to cement it into a Gibson Les Paul speed knob. I borrowed (stole) this idea from someone on this forum if I recall. I'd guess you could do the same with any object. Like a spark plug, or ?

    Just make sure you put the key in so the volume is ALL THE WAY UP!

    So far, after turning it around a dozen times...it has held up.

    Most, me included, have used a Goldwing radio knob. Mine have held up well, even in the tight rear lock for the saddlebags.

    I thought the Honda keys had a microchip transponder in the top plastic?

    I don't think so, SeaSteve. I made copies of mine using blanks from Home Depot (intending to make a radio knob one for the saddle bags one day) and the copies work fine in the ignition.
