PostSubject: key will not turn-solution   Sat 13 Mar 2010, 12:08

2003 silverwing. The key did turn but seemed dry .used dry graphite on lock inserted key now it will not turn .I needed spare keys anyway so had some cut .wow new keys will not work.grabbed some brake cleaner protected the area blasted some into keyway while sucking with wet dry vac.Found quite a bit of junk pulled up. Just for good measure I blew out with air gun. More junk came out . insert key works great .just a note I surmise that I puffed to much graphite into lock and blocked the pins from seating or previous owner used oil and the dry lube made a mess of it.
PS I have a detailed air box mod that preserves the factory designed water ingestion
solution while increasing air flow to the k+n filter .the original snorkle is 1.5 inch
output from air box is2" modification removes old snokle and replace with 2" wet dry extensions. Air box cover is abs plastic as is the tube allowing to plastic weld. I did some air flow testing on the side panel and found some ram air effect possible by triming turn under lip {side panel} by the air box more to follow thanks duke

Welcome to the SWing forum.

It will be interesting to see your pictures and more details on your air box modification.
