Got my ignition switch/lock all phucked up!!!!

Doing a handlebar install, I took the ignition out without the key, couldn't get it back together, now it's together, forks locked, but switch turns to all positions, nothing electric comes on, even in on position..

Watched a youtube video, saw how to use the button underneath and the key, no joy. Nothing is working to get the switch back out, key, no key, button, no button. Forks are locked. Can't even push it onto a trailer and take it to the dealer.

Any ideas? Anyone in the Hill Country want to make some money?

Push the button up and stick the key in. Just play with it. You didn't mess anything up. once you get the ignition out ,you will need to line up the tumbler then follow the video on you tube. To line up tumbler use big flat head screw driver or make a tool. A post on this site shows ya how.

Okay, thanks, been playing with it for three hours now.

One thing I thought might be wrong when trying to put it back together was the nut that screws on. It was finger tight when I first took it apart, now I'm thinking it has rotated some and is no longer in a position to allow the switch to come out.


Talk about feeling BAAAAAD.

I managed to get the wild1 mini apes on ok, they look good. Can't turn the handle bars to see how they feel. Cant get power on to see if wires are ok. Just sitting there, looking at my $25,000 door stop.....

Don't forget ,if your forks are locked ,try pushing the key down and to the left in the ignition, then rotating the whole ignition to the left and removing. I'd bet you got the tumbler mixed up. is this the video your watching ?

It's easy to fix once you understand how it works.

Try taking some pressure off the bars while thier locked, in other words pull on the right handle grip or push the left away from the lock postion and fiddle with the key and ignition switch. Some time with the pressure off the lock positon it will pop.

If you got your tumbler mixed up the lock wont come up in the lock position . It will come up in an other position. Make sure the key is to the left and push down on the key and turn even more to the left . Just a little past the lock position. (Only does this if the key is being pushed down) . Then push up on the button underneath and the whole ignition should pull out in one of the positions. actually when you go to the left past the lock position ,that should pull the button up. Its been awhile sense I had it apart
