Crappy design for the frunk latch, fersure!

I have the same issue. My dealer told me that there is a "Recall" on the latch mechanism from Honda for this very issue years ago. I have been holding off on getting this done as I do not ride NaNCy enough to get to the next major service quick enough. I will probably have them take a look at then.
...and here it is, set enough to sit in its new homeThe lid from a bottle of Worcester sauce worked for me - set the key in a bit of rubber I'd whittled down and cut a slit through, then poured in the two part epoxy to fill the gaps.
In a few hours, when it's had a chance to set, I'll get the Dremel out and polish away the gluey mess from the sides of the lid. Popped a nail through from side to side too, to aid stability as it's turned

What is your bike’s model year? Does your bike use a traditional double cut bumpy key, or the newer wave style key?I had both a spare ignition and a shorter key made for the frunk at a locksmith. I explained the blank numbers and purpose. Each key was $5. Locksmith said my original ignition key was slightly twisted and to be careful with it, and not to use the spares if they didn't feel smooth going in or gave any sort of resistance. The ignition key isn't super duper smooth but works, so im keeping for emergency use. The shorter key intended for the frunk doesnt work at all though. I didn't really jibe with that particular locksmith and don't want to go back. I feel like im asking for something custom and didn't ask right. So,, any advice on how to clearly tell the next locksmith how to make a functional frunk key?
Or, if we think the issue is my original and not perfect ignition key, is there something I can do? I do not have the key code, used bike. Non hiss.
ensure they use an HD 109 blank....I had one cut at Rural King,,,then took a wire cutter and cut the top (part you hold) and top of the key just above the bumpys, glued into a cap (some people use some kind of knob) and use it....since I cut part of the skinny part of the key (from bumpies to the hold part) it wasnt long enough to work in the ignition but long enough to work in the frunk....I have a 2013 with the bumpy cut. I think i see the issue now. She copied the top part of the key instead of the bottom. I don't know how but that's what it looks like. So, I can explain that to the next Smith and hopefully have better results
That doesn't even look like the right cut to me on the part she did doI have a 2013 with the bumpy cut. I think i see the issue now. She copied the top part of the key instead of the bottom.
