  4. spare key

    I bought my Transalp in February with only one set of keys. I wanted to have spare so I contacted Motoden Honda and they quoted me £60 for a blank key that I still have to go and cut. It seems extortionate, so I wanted to ask is there any other way to get the spare done? Thanks

    Africa Twin
    As part of a rebuild I have invested in digital instruments, the one difficulty I am looking for a solution for is how to blank off the hub end of the speedo cable once I have removed it. Don't want to just leave it open to the elements.
