Hi guys. My VTX 1300S-7 came with two keys, one operates the ignition and fuel cap and the other the helmet locks. Neither key fits the steering lock which would appear to need a single sided key. From my understanding the ignition key should fit all the locks on the bike, but it doesn’t. The bike is original and hasn’t been built with parts from other bikes. Anyone any ideas?

Bottom key is how most look. Top key is weird.
Lock in photo is not factory.
Someone likely changed out parts from other bikes and didn't change the locks to match. I think a locksmith can do that.

Thanks for that. The top key fits the helmets locks (2) which may be aftermarket as the OM only shows 1 lock. Odd it’s a Honda key blank though. The steering lock is a puzzle, I’ll see if a locksmith can make a key to fit.

I think I only used steering lock six months. Too annoying to bother with it and so easy to break it doesn't provide security.
