Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

There is no key number that would start with a 5. Are there any other numbers on the key? Is this an actual Yamaha key, does it say Yamaha on it?

It does not say yamaha on it. No other numbers

Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 3 years ago
Is your actual keyswitch a Yamaha keyswitch? Does it say Yamaha on it? More importantly, you haven't asked me any kind of questions. How is it I can help you ?

I don't see anywhere it says yamaha

Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 3 years ago
So it sounds like you need a new key switch, which would come with new keys. Does that make sense?
