Anyone know where I can can an ignition switch, gas cap and seat lock for a Pre 600 all keyed with the same key for a reasonable price?
I need to do some replacing, but I don't want to fill up my keychain!

just about any locksmith can re-key a tumbler if you bring them to the shop for a reasonable fee

Do you know where the code is located on the ignition switch if I wanted to get a key for it? I am pretty sure all other locks have the same key.

Problem is it's probably cheaper for him to find a matching set used online or at a junkyard than pay for that. Locksmiths are expensive :(

I had one made by a locksmith for $35. It was alot less than I woulda spent had I bought the parts instead. BTW he came to me.

i guess you found a good one. Last time i dealt with a locksmith i was charged $7 for a simple copy of a snowmobile key. It was a very common key blank but no hardware store would touch it because "omfg its a snowmobile"...
