The automotive industry has been eliminating the old style mechanical key and lock on new vehicles for years and now the same thing is happening in the motorcycle industry. Harley Davidson replaced the mechanical ignition lock and key on new 2018 Softail models with a key fob or fob that provides security using  radio signals to communicate with the motorcycle. The motorcycle's computer can communicate with the key fob and knows when the rider is carrying the correct fob assigned to the motorcycle. The ECU or computer can either disable or allow the motorcycle to start based on the key fob. If the rider shows up with the wrong key fob or no key fob at all, then the computer will disable the motorcycle.

In remembrance of the good ole days I thought I would post a key blank application guide for Harley Davidson models. The motorcycle industry doesn't get the same attention as automotive, so some information may be incomplete. I don't think any of these keys will fit the Aermacchi model Harley Davidson's from the 1960's and 70's. You might need to do some extra research and ask questions to determine the correct key for your motorcycle. I included different manufacturer key blank numbers when it was appropriate.
