OK to start of with I lost my key (only had one). I was looking at the paper work the guy gave me I bought the bike from to see if he wrote the key code down. As I was looking I found a receipt were the original owner had bought a Cobra F12000. (im the third owner) The guy I bought it of off said it didnt have one on it. I had ask because it has a hypercharger and hard krome exhaust.
Anyway when I got the bike home I looked in the places I thought it would be in and didnt see one. After I found the receipt I started looking again and found it under the left side cover.

Thought I would share some of my luck. Since I was going to order one, Guess I put the money to something else.

O, I found my hey and Im going to get me a copy of my key made!!

I thought that the code was inside the gas cap? Now I have to look.

When I bought my bike last week at the dealer (used) after the papers were signed and the deal was done I found the same one on my bike during the post sale walkthrough. He showed me how to pop the seat and there it was. They said they didn't know what it was.

Score!

The code is actually on a little metal tag that comes with the key when you buy the bike new. I wrote mine down in my Owner's Manual because I'm an anal-retentive lunatic. I don't actually know about the gas cap, but right now I'm trying not to go outside to check. Because I'll look like a nut standing out there with a flashlight staring at the underside of my gas cap.

I would advise you to get a second key made and hide it on your bike. You can't ever tell when you maybe away from home and lose your key. A spare key at home and you 100 miles or more from there ain't worth a continental damn as my dear old Dad, God rest his soul would say!!

Just an FYI about keeping the spare key on your person... My dad and I were participating in a 150 mile 2-day Charity event. There were about 25 motorcyclists providing an "escort" to the 3500 bicyclists for this charity (MS150). My dad drove down from kansas (450 miles away) when we discovered his stator went out, and was no longer charging the battery. After having to push start the bike twice, and get a jump, we decided to leave and head to the house which was only 65 miles away. Wouldn't you know it.... he was low on push-o-line.... So we get to the gas station, and he remembered his spare key was on his normal key ring. So I pump the gas while he's holding the throttle up to keep the bike from dying (a Suzuki 1500 LC is not fun to push start). So the spare key either on the bike, or on yourself is the ONLY way to go...
