  • Ignition key won’t lock

    03’ Roadstar 1600 limited, The key will not turn To the
    locked position!!!!!! (No accidents or abuse)
    it does power up and releases the seat.
    what would cause that?

    push down on the key before turning it to lock the forks.

      If you are pushing down on the key and it won't lock, I have that same problem. Feels like the locking pin is slightly out of alignment and won't go in the hole. I never really worry about it but I do carry a padlock to put on the lock tabs on the right side of the neck if I ever feel the need to do so.

        Yeah figured it was something like that. But it just done it
        after I adjusted steering stem - I did push the key down (didn’t work) so I was turning the handle bars and key trying to catch it but all it would do is knock it .

          I would suspect you didn't get the top triple tree down correctly when you did the steering head. Are you sure you got all the washers and spacers in correctly.

              If you mashed the rubber washer between the two nuts (or left it out) then the locking pin won't line up. The proper procedure is to torque the bottom nut then screw the top nut down until it just touches the rubber washer, Install the washer with the locking tangs on it so the two nuts are locked together and reinstall the tree.

              I did do that !!!! But the manual says to to torque the top locknut to 16ft-lbs. but that still smash’s the the rubber washer.
              but I will try it your way and see what happens.
              im waiting on the washer plate now. And thank you.
