    call a locksmith....there is a code in the glove compartment where they can look in a data base and make you a new key......

    its also on the tumbler as well as the glove box lock mechanism as well. been there done that already. you've got to proove you own the car, that is if you take it to the dealership to have the key made.

    well...on the 01 gsr there is a RF chip in the key...so i dont know about that one...my girlfriend has an 01 gsr...and people have attempted to steal it a couple of times, but they couldnt...it was a sitting duck one night, she forgot to set her alarm...they never got it started...did you notice the black ring that went around the key hole...that is for the RF chip...goodluck, thats all i have to say

    yup my boy had a 2000 and it got broken into but they couldnt take it u of that chip they just fuck up the ign real bad and he had to get a new one with a new chip. and if the car wass stolen then brought to the salvage yard ur mostlikey shit out of luck and they wont let you get another key made because the car was stolen and the totaled.

    if you bought it from an auction then i would assume that you have paperwork from the sale? i would assume that is all that you would need to prove ownership and get a new key. that is what would make sense to me.

    Maybe convert it to obd1 run an ECU that doesn't look for the transponder key.
    I heard of some people stealing GSRs by carrying around the ecu and key to match it, to get the car started.
