Did you try moving the handlebars back and forth a bit?

On mine, I have to hold the bars at just slightly off of fully turn to the left to lock them - maybe something similar is happening.

It's a mechanical locking mechanism. I've found it before but don't recall exactly where it is. Somewhere near the top of the forks. I'll see if I can find it later ( probably not until tomorrow) --- maybe there is something there that can be removed.

Are you pushing the key down into the ignition a bit before trying to turn the key? (You should be)
