Hey There,

I dont suppose anyone could point me in the right direction of where i could find a front mudguard for the Xevo 2008 model? I have searched the web and had no luck whatsoever - i did see some parts on ebay but they look nothing like the one that i'm looking to replace.

Also whats the best way to get my key cloned - i only received one with the bike and have ordered a blank key but have no idea on where to get it copied/cloned, etc...

thanks in advance

Any car security locksmith should be able to clone a key, and probably also have supplied a suitable key for less as well.
The Xevo has that 'beak' that is fixed under the fairing rather than one that rotates with the wheel and I have never seen one sold on Ebay. You will probably need to get one from an accident write off but they may also be a part that's knackered easily in an accident.
I seem to remember ages ago someone wanted to fit a normal X9 style mudguard to a Xevo but whether they did so I can't remember. If the lugs for mounting are still there on the forks then I guess it is possible but what is exposed when you remove the old beak that may need a cover made or if there is enough space to allow the mudguard to move up with the wheel may be a problem.

I wanted a spare key. I rang Fowlers, they required the Frame prefix and Frame number. They sent me a new key by return already cut. when you 'code' the key you have to redo the coding of the original. Follow the book carefully , but speed up the sequence. Both keys will then work.

If you clone a key it is exactly the same as the original therefore the immobiliser doesn't need programming as it sees both keys as one and the same. The cut on the blade can be done at any key bar using the old key as a pattern or if you have the blade code, from that too. A cloned key is one with a chip that can be programmed to replicate another.
If you buy an original genuine uncut key then it will need adding to the system as well as cutting as each OEM key is pre-set with a unique code and the immobiliser needs to know all the codes of keys it is required to allow to operate...but unless you have the brown master key you cannot program the immobiliser so cloning a 'generic' key is your only option.

The well-renowned and respected 'Chief Keefe' owned a blue X9500 which sported a red front mudguard; the precedent was set more than ten years ago!
