Does anyone know where I can order some Honda Forza magnetically coded key blanks?

I got one out of China a few years ago but can't get more from that source.

I got a non-magnetic key cut yesterday. The locksmith had to modify the key so that it had enough clearance to go all the way in the key hole.

The reason I wanted another key is that I could not find my usual set of riding keys. My Olympia neon riding gear has too many pockets. Rain layer pants have 4 pockets, main pants have 4 pockets, jacket thermal layer 1 pocket, jacket rain layer 2 pockets, main jacket 10 pockets. Jeans have 5 pockets. Some shirts have 2 pockets. Gloves 1 pocket.

AND the FLEECE VEST has TWO POCKETS which I FINALLY CHECKED after 4 HOURS and $15 for NEW KEYS requiring a 120 KM RIDE!!!

Dementia is starting to set in more determinedly. I have had too many industrial and sports injuries to the head. At 58 too many medical issues. Too many self-inflicted drug and alcohol issues.

I also need keys for my Givi Maxi 55 top case. My Honda dealer has tried to order this square internally cut key a few times. They have received the wrong blank a few times. Givi Canada say to use a dealer. I might have to send a strongly worded message to Givi.

3.7 degrees C, blue skies and I hope my cell phone stays quiet. Let's ride!!!

I only have one magnetic key.. (Keep it locked away). I just use the cut keys without the damn lock. I never lock the ignition anyway.. Waste of time.. If they want they will get it.. You probably need to get to the ignition switch and get the exact number off the cylinder and have Honda send you another or find a dealer that can duplicate it.. I think its a send away.. Just use the cut keys and don't worry.. besides it just may turn up someday..

I think Honda's policy on Forza keys is that you have to buy a new lock set and new keys.

I never use the ignition lock but some asshole did shut it one day while I was in a store. I put silicone today in the mechanism to shut the key cover so that it cannot be used.

I found my keys. I have about 27 pockets when I am riding. Way too many.

A spare magnetic key is still desired. I have also worn out one of my cut keys after about 50,000 km.

I guess I have to cruise eBay again.

Sadly, this is also Givi’s policy. It does no good whatsoever to have the original key’s number. Want a replacement, they’re more than willing to sell you a set of cylinders and keys for however many bags you have (for me, at the time, it was 5), but forget getting a replacement key out of them.
