Fast Facts™ is written by a working locksmith, for working locksmiths.
One "look-up" convenience makes it indispensable for quoting jobs over the phone or working at the car or motorcycle.
No batteries required. No internet hook-up necessary. No laptop or electronic notebook can compare to the convenience of the Fast Facts™. Instant Facts at your fingertips. Indexed, Clear, Concise and easy to read.
The "Helps Section" gives pointers and many specific transponder programming procedures that have been tested and proven in actual use. GM VATS system information, key progressions and special notes on a number of autos gives you the benefit of nearly 45 years of "on the road" experience.
The Motorcycle section of the Fast Facts™ book is printed on yellow stock. This makes the section easy to locate. Notice that the Make Model and Year format is similar to the auto section.
The manufacturers names are in alphabetical order. To find a Honda motorcycle, we would look up Honda, then find the model, and then the year of manufacture. At this point we would find the "Code series, Application, Number of cuts, Key Number and the correct Fast Facts™ motorcycle key Plate to turn to for more key-making information.
There are two other motorcycle indices. There is a "comprehensive "model" index, which contains over 2,560 motorcycle models, arranged by manufacturer (make), model and year. Models are listed alphanumerically under the Manufacturer name, and indicate the years of manufacture, code series, number of tumblers in the series, the Ilco and Curtis key numbers, and the appropriate Key Plate in the motorcycle section of the Fast Facts™. Some models will show more than one key because the Code Series will determine the keyway.
There is also a seperate 15 page index of Chinese and Korean motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and handicap electric chairs.
