Question Which is more often the case?

My bike requires the button less key fob and I lost one. We have a local Stealer within 3 miles of my house. I did not buy my Glide there I actually do not know anyone who has. I checked there for replacement fob and I was told 45.00 for the fob 40.00 to have a new barrel key made and recieved and one hour in shop fee which is just under 100.00. So just about 200.00 after taxes and I nearly cried. I called the dealer where I bought the bike and they had a fob and barrel key there it is about a 90 minute ride, weather cooled off here in Florida so wife said lets ride. Picked up the fob and had guys order new barrel key and was directed to see guys in service to program the fob to the bike. They took both the old and the new fob a scooted into service with my bike. Thinking it is an hour I start looking at apparel and within 10 minutes I hear them calling for me to go back to service. My thoughts are oh crap what did they find and when I get to the area I meet up with the guy and he hands me both fobs and says thanks have a nice day no charge happy to help you. So my question is how in the heck can they charge an hour for something that takes no time and if others have had similar experience?

Thus the difference between a stealer and a dealer.

The dealers are starting to charge an hour labor for a simple repair instead of a 1/2 hour which is Bullshit.
Why do you need a new barrel key for a fob replacement??? All they need to do is program the Fob to the bikes security system and they are done, there is no need for new keys.

He may be like me and has his key attached to the fob. If he lost the fob, the key would be with it

It's stories like this that makes me glad for my dealer, Treasure Coast Harley has always done me right. Had my clutch cable break just before a trip they came and got the bike, fixed it and brought it back the same day, I have the ESP and the total cost was $50.

I bought my FOB off eBay and the dealer charged me $20 to program it. I had a barrel key cut at a local locksmith for $9.00. If you pull the black sleeve off your second key you'll find the key code stamped on it. If you don't have a second key you can get the code from the dealership where you purchased the bike. I'm just sayin'....
