The Bin 'O Facts for the Gen II says:
Equivalent part numbers: Ilco YM63, Taylor X248, Curtis YM63,Silca YH35R
Same blank is used for: Yamaha: YZF, FJR, FZR, FZ1, R1, GTS, XJ, V Star, Road Star, Royal Star, Venture, F1, Warrior & TT-R models - 1993+. Vino Scooter 2001+.
You can usually buy these cheaply on ebay or just walk right into any locksmith's shop and they should have them in stock. Most locksmiths will also have a reference book showing what key blanks fit a particular bike model.
It's a good idea when you get a new (or new to you) bike, to take one of the original keys and have a couple of duplicates made. Only use those and put the originals away so if you ever need more copies made you're making copies from an original instead of copying a copy.
It's also a hell of a lot less trouble to dig around in your dresser drawer and find that copy you made years ago vs. having to get a locksmith to pick your lock and make a key from it.

Most places have key blanks that have the same dimensions as the Yamaha key but they don't have the plastic head. The other key blanks like the Ilco are also a lot more robust than the Yamaha OEM key. During the '03-'04 time period people used to joke that if you had a bent ignition key simply place it on a table with the bow facing up and by morning it would be flat again.
That's funny sh!t right there

Look before you leap may be good advice - but if you really intend leaping, don't spend too long looking...........

I don't know if you bought the bike originally from the dealership (first owner) or not. If you are, the set of keys should of came with a little metal piece.. on that there is a code number. You'd have to call Yamaha dealer, give them that number and they'll order you a new key. It might cost you a few bucks (maybe around $25-$50 for just one key) but at least you'll have a key. Then, that's when you take that new original key, get a second copy made at a local locksmith Las Vegas. I made a copy of mine the other day and it cost me $1.08 to make.
Worse case scenario, if you don't have the little metal thing with the code on it, you can call Yamaha directly and they might be able to order you a new key with just the VIN number off the bike... but they may need to verify that's you who owns the bike by asking a series of questions. Keep us updated to see how that goes.
