Change ignition key?

Hey guys I have a quick question I am going to be buying a bike from a guy that I found on craigslist and everything is good. I just had a question or concern I guess.

I have read alot of stories on here and other forums about bikes being stolen. I was wondering if it would be worth the extra money to get the ignition re-keyed once I bought the bike and if so around how much do you think it would cost. I am going to have the bike garaged when at home but I dont know if I am just being to paranoid or if this would be a good idea.

Any input?

That's kinda paranoid, but if it makes you feel better go for it. The age of the bike will determine the availability and price.

Make sure you buy the break-off bolts or whatever the mfr. used for anti-removal. Use a left-handed bit for drilling out the old ones.
