Do you mean the steering lock? You should be able to push the key in while moving the bars a little until the key turns, if you mean the steering lock. You have to move the bars while gently turning the key to find the exact spot where the key will turn. Good luck...

You must do this till all ok without stopping a day or two and do it straight away or you run the chance of scrapping the motor as ive done this for 30 yrs ! fingers crossed ok ...

At the bottom of the ignition lock on the side is a small red blob of paint remove it and under it is a small screw rotate it out until the switch is able to be wobbled out don't take the screw out as it is a pest to find if dropped
The paint is on the side oppisit the switch cable entry to the lock
If its the lock remove top yoke and drill out retaining bolts heads as there is no tool to remove only insert them
