How is the key barrel removed on a 1999 Triumph Sprint Tour 955? Are there any special conditions for the removal?


key barrels have nothing to do with the switch and wires. The key barrel just allows the switch to be turned ( removing the barrel and using a screw driver to turn the switch is the same thing) The switch itself will include a steering lock so it may be necessary to remove (drill out ) the clamp bolts around the steering column
Check the wires to the switch and all connections . Using a multimeter with a sharp point to penetrate the insulation ,you can check the switch operation without pulling the switch out.
