Does it replace the key?

Does this replce the key, or fit on the key? Do you still use a key to start the bike with this installed?

What you do is have a duplicate key made, then you have to cut the top off of it and trim it to fit in a slot in the back of the skull (they have other options as far as designs) and then a set screw holds it in place. Then you fill the area around the key where it goes into the knob with JB Weld, let it six for 24 hours and PRESTO, you have a custom looking key. So yes, it does replace the key so to speak and a key is still used to start the bike.

I tried that with 1 of the acron nuts that I removed mounting the windscreen, looks really good, but it is a sob to turn, so I don't use it.

I love the items from x-cessories.net and have used the key holders on both of my VTX bikes and now the Fury. You should look at the "dots" they have, too. I find 2 or 3 places to put them on my bikes.
True story...the first time I used the key fob and took the bike to the dealer for service, they had to call me to find out how to start the bike. So, I feel fairly safe leaving the key in the bike for short periods of time.
Kenny is great to deal with...give them a try.

Don't think I would leave my key in the bike. Anyone with a little common sense could figure it out.

I don't leave my key in the bike if I'm off it for more than a few minutes or if the bike is out of my sight. It took the dealership more than a few minutes to figure it out....they had to call me....did not know if they were supposed to turn the knob or push it in. It is a little harder to turn than normal and it does take a little extra "uumff" to do so. They did not want to break something. I have this one.....http://www.x-cessories.net/Knobs.html in silver pearl
