Have you tried to a locksmith after that when they have gone out of their business ?

SpydeRider2010 looks like its time to cough up some green. but having tow new keys, for a total of three, might not be a bad way to go. if you lose the one you do have... you're SOL; and it'll cost a shortarm and a leg to have it keyed and programmed.

SpydeRider2010 two keys come with EVERY new Spyder. if it was pre-owned (USED), it may only have one. but if it is new, ask your dealer to furnish you with another.

I was able to find out directly from BRP that, only a total of four keys can be
programed for a single Spyder. the warranty labor time for programing a key is approx. .5; but customer pay labor time was not available. "normally" it is 1.5 times the warranty rate.

so "ballpark" cost should be approx. $87.00 for one extra key, and $125.00 for two extras (having a total of four programmed keys), plus tax. and it may even be something that's negotiable, since there seems to be so much uncertainty about the costs.

ask...

mishapman I'm thinking you should have got two keys out the door if you bought it at a dealer. My dealer told me to put the spare in a safe place as it will make making a copy much easier should it ever be needed.

Could always contact BRP to find out how many keys are supposed to come with a new purchase.

SpydeRider2010 I called my dealer today, and one key is $37.99. then... I have to take it to a locksmith, have it cut; then take it back to the dealer. the dealer isn't sure how much time it takes to program a key or what to charge.

I work for a Ford dealer, and it costs aprox. .5 hr flat rate labor to program two keys; when starting from scratch. if you have two working keys, you can add up to 4 more, for a total of 6; without any programing costs. if you only have one key, you're looking at another key and the programing of the two keys.

While Ford's Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) is indicative of Ford, the idea is the same. Can Am just needs to set a standard for dealers to work from. currently... the costs are arbitrary. everyone sets their own prices. and no one knows EXACTLY what has to be done to replace a lost key or add spare keys, or how many you CAN add.

aside from my info... if anyone else has better info... feel free to correct me or add to it. I'm all ears for something consistent.

TicketBait I ordered a new key and they had it cut by a locksmith and then it needed to be re programmed. I watched the mechanic do it, took about a half hour to work

How'd you get out of the showroom with only one key?? They should owe you one free one for sure!
