all polaris keys work in all polaris's, all AC keys work in all ACs, all ski doo keys (up to a certain year when they made anti theft) will work in Ski doos, all yamaha keys will work in yamahas.

all this is within certain years, like a key from a 1980 AC wont work in a 95 AC...

As far as Polaris, I have been told they make 4 different keys. Look on the rubber part of the key above the word Polaris. You will see a dot or dots there(1-4 dots). If you can find a key with the same number of dots it should work. This was told to me by someone and I have not been able to confirm it myself. Would like to hear if it is true.

Thats true for polaris, found that out last year when the same key worked on a couple of different polaris's. I belive that key had 3 notches on the key.

Try to find another Indy 500, most likely it will have the same key. My dad's 95 Indy Trail uses the same key as my 98 Indy Trail

ACEXLT that's exactly how polaris is, madd dog if you bring it to the local polaris shop, they might try the keys for your, or I think if you give them the serial number off the sled they might be able to tell you which one.

I picked up a second key for both of mine.
Look where you slip the key in, some have a number... 1,2 etc. Do you have the end of the broken key?, I has dot in one corner.
Last resort take the switch off and head to the dealer, he'll find the key, there a limited number.
