Canít get ignition switch out!

Iím installing KST 12 inch Outlaw bars. Ignition switch came out fine and I got the bars snug. While turning them to check that they donít hit my wind shield, the steering locked up. I didnít have that handy tool so, I put only the ignition switch back in, unlocked the wheel and straightened them out.

Now I canít get the ignition switch out. So, now that I see how I couldíve done this without removing the switch, Iím putting it all together. The switch seems to move thru all positions as it should.

Two questions.
1) any tips on getting that switch out?

2) What could happen if that 3/4 inch nut isnít reinstalled over the ignition switch post?

Hopefully, everything works once itís all together.


Any day above ground is a good one!

Did you put the spring back as well? If not try to pull up the switch while you release it and see if it does release.
I assume you’are using the bike’s key in the release procedure if you were able to remove the switch the first time.
