06 Silverwing, lock worked fine, put some graphite powder in the lock and no it doesn't turn. I had the fork locked also, took 5 minuets to unlock, then I couldn't turn the key to start the sw.

Think the lock is shot? Are they expensive?

Spike,
Have a look in Silver Wing topics, 'ignition barrel - may have a problem'. There's about 3 pages of a thread started by Waspie - he had a similar problem, but there are a few suggestions to 'cure' the problem.

Just bought a 2002 SilverWing with one key, which I promptly lost. No, I don't have the key tag with the key code. The manual may have it inside, but it is locked in the storage. The dealer looked up the VIN, but can't tell me the original dealer. So, unless someone has a better idea, I need to remove the ignition switch, and take it to the dealer.

Does anyone know what it takes to remove the ignition switch?

Spike you don't say if your a Uk/Europe or USA/Canadian rider.

Is your Wing a HISS fitted machine. If so then yes it will be expensive. Honda changed mine under warranty with similar symptoms.

djteske, have you thought about the introduction section at the top of the home page? Might be polite to have a quick visit!

Jeez, give the guy a break, he sounds like he's in a pretty desperate situation.

He just bought it, give him some time before he's a full time participant. I'm sure if someone helps him rather than giving him attitude it's far more likely that he'll become a contributing member.

Besides, if he's buying a scooter in November to ride in Wisconsin, he sounds pretty hardcore.

Thank you for your comments.

Just to keep you in the loop we have been communicating behind the forum to resolve his issue don't be so keen to criticise before knowing all the facts.

That's great, but I have been seeing a pattern.

I didn't read anything about requirements before asking for help at this forum, I just wanted to make sure I know all the rules.

Also thanks for keeping as much of the help as secret as possible so everyone doesn't find out that there is good information and help to be had around here. We definitely don't want good information cluttering up the interesting conversations around here. Keep those "behind the forum" conversations going.

So, does anyone have a diagram of the ignition switch, or a detailed instruction on how to access it> I have a basic drawing that makes me think I should just hunt for screws and remove them. Thanks.

Spike, I had a similar problem a while back. Came out one morning and the key went in okay but would not turn. I put the key slightly in and turned the barrel around on the lock. This worked for me and ignition has been okay ever since. Worth a try.

OK, I'm pretty new to this SW group. I see a lot of you are in the UK. Just wondering, what side are the handlebars on over there?

They are on the front end, bolted to the front forks so you can steer.

Apart from that I couldn't understand your question, I think you need to clarify it.

Cheers,

djkesje. Every thing much the same except we have a 12volt outlet socket in the left hand pocket, and our headlight is dipped to the left as we ride on the other side of the road. Do you know it is advisable to take out the under seat light bulb to avoid a flat battery? it happened to me! Smile

Handlebars are for steering? So that's what they're for - bugger, I thought they were highway pegs so no wonder I keep wobbling.... Shocked
