Help! Key knob stuck in ignition switch!

Need some help! Well not realizing when you pull the knob out of the ignition it has to be lined up to reinstall. So now it's in the ignition module and and I can't get it out. I've messed and messed with it and can't seem to get it out. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Well I took it to the local dealer and they told me I was going to have to replace it all for $250.
So while I was driving home I was just messing with it while I was praying about it and it literally just fell out! So hopefully I should be all set.
Power of prayer!

Had the same problem happen on another bike, took it to a locksmith and they were able to remove if for free I did give him $20 just for his time.

Careful reading this post..... I think this is a contagious disease. I just fought mine about 3 weeks ago, while installing new bars.

$250?!! OUCH! They don't call 'em "stealerships" for nothing.

Glad it worked out for you.

I never had issues with my older bikes. I thought it was something new on the 14+ bikes and my dealer said they've been that way for quite sometime. News to me, lol!
Almost found out the hard way.

Jeeezzzz, for $250 I'd almost hope they'd at least keep it for a whole day rather then just take the 5 mins it takes to fix....at least that way you'd almost think you got your moneys worth.
