Hello

I have a PX150, registered 2016, but date on seat is 2014, bought second hand, and brilliantly I've managed to lose both the keys.
Sent off for replacement barrels, and noticed the Piaggio-branded keys also say 'Zadi' and have a 4-digit code.
On the key-ring on which the original keys were on there was a small metal piece with a 4 digit code on it. Having done some research I used the UK firm Key2Code to try and get replacement keys, but none of them worked (usually being too long, but even roughly the correct length were no good).
Having done a little research it seems very likely PX150 of this age will use Zadi keys (and certainly has the Zadi3100 cuff around the lock). I got replacement barrels, and the Zadi replacement certainly slides beautifully into the lock.

My question simply is, can anyone confirm whether this metal tab is what the code for Piaggio/Zadi keys looks like? (before I give up and try and change the barrels myself. Wheel lock is on, which I believe makes things more tricky)
Any advice of anyone who could potentially cut a key from this code other than the firm above, or what is the correct key to request, will be appreciated.

I'll be honest, I never heard of the word Zadi key so I am learning something new but I will tell you that my 05 PX150 has a plate just like that with 4 digits. I always suspected that it has to do with a code to identify the type of key or a code that will link to the VIN in order to make a duplicate.

Yes, supposedly you can get keys with this code but from experience it never worked, not even Piaggio can order you a key. That's why a new set of barrels / keys is so inexpensive…

Zadi also do the keys for a Italjet Formula 125, but they have a different base to the PX barrel

Thanks for all the replies. JimH, former forum legend in a reply in another thread suggested a possible solution. Bearing in mind, this was a 2016 plate PX, I think a bike made in 2014, this worked. The seat was unlocked so I took the lock out. Simply done - three bolts. Get the barrel out of the lock. You'll be able to find out how to do this elsewhere, but the metal or plastic surrounding the barrel is kept in by a stainless steel C-clip. Remove clip, barrel and surround will slip out. At the far end of the barrel there's a spring-loaded metal lip/edge that if you push into the barrel, you can free the barrel from the surround. Send the barrel (recorded mail) to a reputable locksmith. I used Access Locks in Margate (UK) and they cut a key from the barrel, sent it back to me, all for £20. Superb. JimH had suggested that a decent locksmith could cut a key from the barrel alone and I found this to be the case.
