I did a quick glance in 2012 board to see if anyone is doing the radio key knob like we do on the pre '12? Seems the knobs are a lot harder to find that match the 2012 radio knobs. And, what keys do you use? Are they the same keys as the earlier models? TIA

I got the knob at my dealer that matches the radio knobs. No biggie

I had 2 made at Wally world cost $3.84. Got black knobs from a friend. I think I have 2 knobs left. PM me your address and I will mail them to you. Boomer 1832 said I could. LOL

Still need to figure out the key blanks used.
All years of the 1800 use the same blank. I use Axxess 27 from K Mart or Pep Boys. You can also use a Axxess 27R for the gas lid. 27R can be found at Home Depot & Lowes.

Gas cap

Was wondering how to attach keys to knob??? Is this done so that you can leave the keys in those locks all the time??

Yes, it will be done just like the 2001-2010 models. I used Gorilla Glue on mine. Others use JB weld with good results. Plan is to leave them in the key slot. My '03 keys have been in there since I got the bike in '05. Never been out.
