Default Winter purchases!

Hey all - hope everyone that can't ride due to Winter is handling it alright

So last summer I bought my first bike, an 04 Honda CBR F4i. It had 7900 miles on it, I tossed on another 1200.

I've been searching all over for my key, but can't find it anywhere! The worst part... the battery is still in the bike. I was able to change the oil, clean the chain, and get some fuel stabilizer in the tank... but battery is still in it. Currently the bike is in a garage which stays 'decently' warm. The clock is still displayed. While I search for my key, is there anyway to get the seat off? Where do I go for replacement keys? Any other suggestions?

Also, I'm looking to purchase replacement tires for the bike. The back tire is pretty bad and I'm positive that needs replacement. The front one is maybe ~40%? Is it recommended to change both tires at once? Any recommendations on the tire?

How do the bikes usually react the first time after starting from winter? How long do you let it warm up (I'm assuming till ~1k idle time).

Finalllllly, anywhere to find nice LED headlights?!

Depending if you have a under tail on the bike you may be able to take out the two bolts holding the back fairing on and push down on the under tail to pop the lock in the back.

I found the tires that I wanted for the cheapest price at Motorcycle-Superstore.com

Buy both tires at the same time. I held onto my front purely incase my front goes flat, and I don't have the money to replace it immediately, I'll be able to bring the bike to the dealer and have a temporary fix.

LED headlights? You mean like audi style strips? If so, that is all custom work, and another thread, if you mean like HID, check out ddmtuning. I'm getting mine from there and other people have as well.

Best bet is to call your local dealer for the key.
