Is WholesaleCarKeys.net still in business, as per the following link and post by ZURG http://maxi-scoots.com/scoot/index.php?topic=5655.0 
I can not get ZURK'S supplied link in his post to work, perhaps they have been bought out or have changed name.

I need to purchase a replacement key with the plastic magnetic head for the ignition shutter and I am looking for someone in North America to purchase a replacement. The only other companies I have been able to find to supply Burgman keys are located in China and do business on Flea-Bay and if you read the comments on Flea-Bay many purchasers have  posted very unflattering comments towards these people, their products and after sales support. Except for locally sold Chinese food I try to knowingly avoid any business, product or service from China, most of my experiences have been bad with these people, many over there are simply hucksters.

Other than China anyone know wholesale key suppliers that have quality replacement keys (Suzuki Burgman keys ) in the U.S or Canada.

Thanks for your help !

I don't know of any sources for the key blanks with the plastic heads. I do know that if your in a pinch a good locksmith shop should be able to make you a key to fit your ignition to operate your bike.

I only got one key for Diane's 2012 650 Trike. I had a couple spares made.

I Googled it and found this:

And some guy (guys) claim that:
Go to any good locksmith, ask for an ILCO #241 SUZ 218 Blank key. Have him grind back the shoulders some that the key will go in far enough to trip the trunk. Two keys cost me $6.46 including tax. One is in my wallet case I lock my keys in the trunk.

I have replacement key for the Burgmans that don't have the magnetic head.  Got from a locksmith.  I used the "locking" slide maybe once or twice when new then never again.


It's a scooterful day in the neighborhood!

Just saw your post ... evidently selling Burgman (and other) key blanks wasn't enough to keep wholesalecarkeys.net in business, and all I got for Googling was the eBay links.  I did find wholesalecarkeys.net's Facebook page - the last post there was May, 2016, and the website link there went nowhere.  And, just for the record, they were based in - wait for it - yep, China.

You might try a Suzuki dealer.  Presumably Suzuki still makes keys and maybe they're not still charging an arm and leg for one.

I also found this place but, again, China (though the website looks decent).  http://www.szbohn.net/keys-and-remotes/motorcycle-keys/for-suzuki.html

Other than a dealer it looks as if your only option is to throw a handful of bucks toward China and hope for the best - that's pretty much what I did in 2013.
