My TW has one key that operates the ignition and the helmet lock. Then it has a different key for the gas cap. Was this a thing, or did a previous owner replace the gas cap (or whole tank?)



I went into my local locksmith to get spares made since I was only given one set with the bike. The ILCO number, if any of you care, is X118 or YH49 for my ignition switch and helmet lock. It's got an extra keyway and is more complex than the gas cap key.



The gas cap key is ILCO number X120 or YH46.





I'm trying to figure out if the keys changed over the years and I managed to get a gas cap from an older or newer bike and if factory bikes have only one key that operates both the ignition and gas cap.

there is a guy online that sells you the blanks. depending on the model, there were at least 4 different blanks that are not interchangeable.



check the grooves and length carefully. i speak from experience.

My key copies are both working fine. I'm thinking about removing the tumbler pins from the gas cap lock because I'm not worried about people throwing sugar in there or anything.



Thanks for shedding light on the mystery.

i was unable to get the core out, as i wanted to swap it with another cap. what i ended up doing was taking off the two locking slider plates that engage with the key. now it works fine with no locking action.

Removing the locking feature of the fuel cap was easier than I could have imagined. Also nice that you can reinstall the feature later just as easily.
unless you take apart all the parts with the intention of removing the core and not putting it back together.....
