So lost my key but thankfully its only $18 for a new one made if I bring the ignition to the Locksmith. (yes, im having 2 keys made)

FYI: wire cover over the Main Ignition Switch is only 1 bolt (12mm?)
then you will need a TORX T40 (Tamper Proof kind) $3 at the hardware store to remove the Main Ignition Switch itself.

Disconnect the wiring connector and your golden.

Sounds like you have the bad luck out of the way and can look forward to a great riding season. Thanks for the heads up on the ignition removal.

I only got one key with my '03 when I bought it and the locksmith was probably one of my first stops for parts. Guess I kind of raised my voice in surprise when I repeated his price of $10 to cut a key but couldn't argue with his logic about it costing a hell of a lot more if I lost my only key. I now have 3 keys. Keep one at home with all the other spare keys for emergencys, one I use and the other is hidden on the bike just in case I lose the main key while on the road.
