    Might just be me but when I go to put the key in the ignition and then try and turn it, It takes about 20 minutes/ half an hour till i can actually turn it properly. The key gets stuck on something inside the ignition any ideas what it could be?

    • How old is the bike? Do you have loads of junk hanging off your keys as you ride?

      Sounds like a worn lock but try the spare key and see if it is the same. A bit of wd40 down the hole might help free it up if it has seized

    • If it's cold heat the key with airgun/hairdryer I found last year mine was freezing in the cold weather

    • WD 40 down the key barrell and check for rattle if it does rattle a lot your anti theft screws have come loose

    • It's a 16/17 plate and iv only got 1 small key on it and another key on it

    • Have you tried the spare key to see if it is the same?

    • No not yet

    • I had the same problem with mine...happened after filling up in the petrol station, steering lock was on and got stuck in the bay!! Eventually freed up after about 15 mins though. I've sprayed some silicon spray in there and has been decent since

    • May be a little WD 40 spray in the lock

    • This seems to be common for these bikes had it twice now wd40

    • I have a 2016 haven't had a problem but the seat lock
