    Ignition Switch Issues

    Oh so close on my CB-1, got it out for 20+/- miles yesterday and when I returned the ignition switch jammed. Key won’t release. Had to disconnect the battery to shut her down. Not the most convenient set-up.

    I know this isn’t Hawk related, but what have others done when the switch gives up the ghost? I use the Motogadget M-lock on my Hawk and it poses issues of it’s own. Love to keep this one keyed.

    Suggestions?

    Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6

    I would suggest taking the switch to an old school locksmith if you have one in the area.
    That person could possible remove the key and repair the lock cylinder.
