    Default If its hard to get your bike's key in and out of the ignition switch then read this

    This happens when the ignition switch is all rusted up inside but that doesn't neccessarily mean that all hope is lost and you have to buy a new one.
    Why?
    Because I'm your friend.
    Well what you have to do in this situation is go and buy a can of WD40. Its not very expensive, I got it for just 200Rs.
    Now spray it inside the ignition switch, not too much a little is enough, you will know when you do it and then take your key and insert it inside the ignition switch for about 10 times and your done.
    Do the same with the side lock and some other lock too if you have one.
    What WD40 basically does is that it forms a protective film where you spray it and that keeps water away from that place because WD means water dispenser. So use it in places where you do not wan't water to go e.g a lock thats exposed to rain, washroom door's hinges, the outside locks of your car where you insert the key in etc etc.

    Also 1 more advise..DUring wash please dont forget to remove key from ignition switch..The above stated happens when moisture/water peeps in the key lock..AHL models are impervious to water if they remain locked during wash.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    I'm using Honda bikes since long never had this problem. If your bike ignition switch and fuel cap lock is a bit hard then put 2 or 3 drops of sewing machine oil and it would turn smooth.
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.
