    Attempted Bike Theft

    Some asswipe decided he wanted my bike at the weekend and punched the ignition out with a screw driver. I am now in need of a new ignition switch. ( He was not successful in stealing the bike). The bike was parked out the back of the hotel we were staying at in a well lit area under a security camera. I reported this to the cops, in case I need to claim the resultant costs on insurance although I am hoping the final cost will be less than the deductable. Cops said they will check the security footage at the hotel, but unless this guy is a known asswipe, i doubt they'll catch him.

    I can get a new one but they cost well over $300 here in Australia and are on backorder.

    Luckily I was eventually able to get it started and was able to ride home....some 1000km away.

    Wish I'd caught the bastard in the act. He would have ended up wearing the screwdriver where the sun don't shine.

    if anybody has a switch complete with keys I would be happy to buy. (08-10 model)

    You will end up needing to run 2 x keys. The original for the fuel tank, and a new one for the ignition.

    Do you know if the ignition barrels on the your gen Speedy are the same as the T500 series bikes?

    Cos if so, I could canibalise the ignition barrel from my Daytona?

    Damn Chewie. Sorry to hear about that. Heís lucky you didnít catch him. But then again, maybe itís best you didnít. Both of you might have spent at least a night in jail.
