alright i have a 06 600rr...

i wanted to go for a ride today so i hop on and for some reason it took me a while to even get the wheel lock off.. and it was hard and took me a while to even get the key turned to the on position so i could press the electric start... any ideas.. the bike runs fine... i just havent rode in about a week due to bad weather and a extremely busy schedule..

and and for all u flamers out there.. theres about 6000 miles on this bike and i bought it brand new so it isnt a rider defect if thats what u were thinking...

so any and all ideas why the key would stick like that would be appreciated...

thanks..

EXILER

Make sure the wheel is all the way to the left or right (put pressure on the handle bar to bring it towards you) before trying to turn the key from the locked position. If anything else, sounds like you got some dirt in there.

Find some graphite and put some in the cylinder, by any chance does the bike stay out in the rain? This can cause this to happen. T

I had the same problem with my bike actually on both of my CBRs. Just spray some WD40 down in the ignition. If you can use the small straw that comes with the can so that it gets all the way inside. Thats what i did with my bike and i havent had n e problems since.

Riding in the rain = water, mixed with air and metal = rust/oxidation.

Stop riding in the rain.

I NEVER RIDE IN THE RAIN... THATS WHY THIS SITUATION CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD...

For some people avoiding the rain isn't feasible. I used to live in Florida and if you ride in Florida eventually you will get caught in the rain. I've never tried graphite because I thought it would wash out too easily so I used 80-90w gear oil on the key itself and then inserted it into the ignition a few times. Trip I know you're in Florida. What are your experiences with the graphite? How long does it last?
