hey there guys, kinda new but was helping a buddy today & he went to turn the key on & evidently the key was weak & it broke off in the lock cylinder, the prob is its too far down to get at w/ a pick or anything, so basically he had to turn it off w/ a screwdriver, his other prob is thats his only key to the bike, so he can't get the seat off nor get the gas cap off if need be. We called a locksmith for curiosity & all of them want close to $200 to cut new keys & try to get the old one out (evidently the bike lock cylinders can't be opened?? thats what they claim anyhow) so i told him to just buy a new lock set off a forum or ebay & that it'd likely be cheaper. Question is are they basically plug & play meaning pull the old one out & put in the new lock sets?? sorry if it sounds stupid but i've never encountered this before lol
Thanks in advance

Hmm, give your stealership your vin number, they should be able to order you a new key..that'll help with the gas tank and rear set lock..but as for your ignition, it should unplug and unbolt and come off...play and toy with it.

yea i told him to go get at least a key made from the stealer & take his registration with him, he just doesn't want to leave the bike w/ the ignition like that so by chance someone decided to give it a whirl lol, i tried pretty hard to get the key out w/ a pick & some tiny tools but its a bitch to get out & i honestly don't think i dented it at all

Check ebay for a complete set. You should be able to find the ignition, gas cap and seat for under $200. Find the same year or same style 03-04, 05-06, 07-08, to match his year. T

ok sweet i'll tell him, nothing special that has to be done w/ the ecu or anything like that is there?? I know on some of the bikes, like my 636 for instance it has the same harness that the euro bikes do & if you don't have a diode in they're immobilizer system plug that the bike is dead lol, thanks in advance & that should make my buddy happy knowing this

Not a problem. Put some graphite in the ignition and make sure everything smooth when putting the key in and turning before assembly. Looks in great shape though. T
