Hey guys just found out there is no keys to the motorcycle this morning and am wondering if my best bet is getting a new ignition and key on ebay and hoping for the best or hoping to find a trustworthy locksmith in nevada. 2006 big dog mastiff thanks alot.
If you remember the key number it makes it easier to track one down. If you have that give Josh a call at Gateway Big Dog ( Ross Bike Parts) 314 291-6333 he sometimes have extras from change overs. Tell him Steve B. with 03chopper sent you. It is not that costly or hard to change over the ignition.
There are many threads on batteries—bottom line: These systems need a strong battery that is kept charged. Of course there will be some outlier who get 5 years out of one battery, but the guys here will overwhelmingly advise that many electrical problems with these bikes are related to a weak battery.
You can buy a $200 Braille, or do what Blacktopper does—he buys a new HD battery every spring.
Happy riding on your legacy bike. Your Dad would be proud!
