Key Guard

Is there any type of key guard available for the 919? I keep getting little marks by my house key. I can always buff them out but I'd rather not.

You could try some of the clear tank protector others have used with success.

Quick release key rings are another solution... just drop the other keys from the equation.

I keep my main MC key on a seperate keychain with one of the softer gummy style keychains. That way, it is easy to grab it with gloves, but doesn't have the other keys to scratch stuff. Works well since I carry a copy of it on my regular keychain and can still get into the "trunk" (if you can call it that....I think you can get 3 sheets of paper in it...) while the bike is warming up. Only problem is I have accidently left my regular keys hanging out of the trunk lock (behind left knee of rider on the Speed Triple) while riding....

The euro's call it a "yoke protector" but I've only seen it on ebay for the Hornet 600's. I plan on just cutting my own from a little carbon look sticky sheet.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.

I never have any extra keys with the ignition key. All that extra weight flapping in the wind could cause undo stress on the bike's ignition assembly.

Mister Mike, cool fob! Did you make that, or was it a purchase?

I'm guessing bought. They no longer carry that one, but here is the website. http://www.hondahornet.co.uk/clubmerchandise.html

Darkace, thanks for the website. They've got an alternative style that's still better than any soft Honda related fob I've been able to find.
Timely, as I have just experienced the heartbreak of fob failure, and don't feel like providing my local dealer any free advertising by using their fob.

I used "Contact adhesive" to cover the top triple clamp... The stuff kids cover their schoolbooks in. Next time I bend the bars and remove them, I plan on making a template so one will fit real nice, and use stick on aluminium checker plate or something similar. The carbon sticky sheet sounds nice too!

I use small pieces of clear vinyl tubing to cover the ends of the keys. Keeps them from scratching the tank during fuel fills as well.

Just one key attached to a lucky rabbits foot, which I hope brings me more luck than it did the rabbit.
