Usually fitted with security bolts at the factory...the heads snap off when first tightened.
Usual method is to remove the top yoke...drill the bolts out...re-tap the threads...then fit new bolts.

SOURCE: what tool do i use to remove the ignition of a

Two screws hold the contact base on(electronics of the switch). That may be all you need to take off to replace the bad part of the switch if that is the part that is broken. If the tumblers or broken , It say that the body of the switch is held on by one way bolts. You may have to grind or drill these off. If you can get them off you can always replace them with user friendly bolts. If some one really wants your bike they will pick it up and take it , then they can work on it in the privacy of there own shop. Most anti theft gimmicks only keep honest people honest.

SOURCE: How do you remove the ignition switch from 1999 Honda CG125

Usually large cir-clip or nuts an bolts, why don't you get one from a breakers? anyhow there's a bit off stuff to come off it before you'll see what your doing, make sure its possible to remove it with or without steering lock on or off. The barrel can usually be separated from the switch but be careful not to take summit apart that wont go back again. A clever engineer would be able to use an old CG125 key and make your barrel fit that key! But alas i'm not blessed with a good locksmiths skills. Good luck - the Yeti

There should be two bolts holding your tank on. One is near the handlebars and the other should be between the tank and the seat. You may need to remove your seat to get to that bolt. You will need to remove your fuel line from the tank also.

SOURCE: I'm trying to change the

I have only changed the belts on my GL1000's. The manual says to remove the radiator but I have found that it is not necessary. With a little bit of knuckle scrapping and some care when removing the four long bolts that hold on the belt covers, you can slide both the bolts and the covers out and replace the belts underneath. If there is just not quite enough clearance you may be able to unbolt the radiator and move it forward just enough to accomplish this with out having to drain it. The pictures you have may be from a 1000, an 1100, or a 1200. The fact is that the timing belts are changed and adjusted the same way on all three models. Just take care when removing the cover mount bolts that you do not damage the radiator. If you are careful you should be able to replace the belts with out all the extra work of draining and removing the radiator. Dealers short cut the radiator removal but charge you for the time anyway. Good Riding.

How do i remove the ignition switch on 1993 honda shadow motorcycle


According to my Clymer manual, those are "break-off bolts". It says to center-punch the bolts, then drill off the bolt shanks with a hand drill. It earlier notes that you should purchase new ignition switch break-off bolts when ordering the switch.
Please note that I'm not telling you drill out the bolts, but that's what the Clymer manual seems to say.
Good luck.The local Honda dealer referred me to a local locksmith since they don't cut keys there.
Those are headless bolts that are permanently in place.
The code is stamped on the outside of the cylinder: three numbers, a letter, then three numbers (123J456)
Got two keys for $40; It was $35 for one.

Key is stuck in broken ignition of 1994 Honda accord EX .How do i remove broken ignition and replace a new one .Thanks


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1994-95 Accord NOTE: Do not attempt to remove the ignition switch assembly if you do not have replacement bolts available. These special bolts have break-away heads which shear off when tightened. This is an "anti-theft'' measure used to prevent easy removal of the bolts. Fig. 2: Shear bolts must be used for reinstallation 86806113.gif
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and disable the SRS system.
  2. Remove the dashboard lower cover/knee bolster.
  3. Remove the steering column covers.
  4. Unplug the ignition switch connector.
  5. Remove the two nuts and two bolts securing the steering column, carefully lower the column assembly.
  6. Use a center punch to mark each of the two shear bolt heads securing the ignition switch assembly to the steering column. Use a 3?16 in. (5mm) drill bit to drill off the heads. Take care not to damage the switch when drilling.
  7. Remove the bolts. Remove the clamp and remove the ignition switch assembly.
  8. Remove the three screws securing the switch and remove the switch. To install:
  9. Make certain the recess of the switch aligns with the tab of the lock housing. Insert the switch and install the retaining screws.
  10. Position the switch assembly on the steering column. Install the new shear bolts; tighten them finger-tight.
  11. Use a wrench or socket of the correct size. Tighten the shear bolts until the heads break off.
  12. Raise the column and install the nuts/bolts. Tighten the nuts to 10 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. 22 Nm).
  13. Connect the ignition switch wiring harness.
  14. Install the column covers.
  15. Install the dashboard lower cover/knee bolster.
  16. Connect the negative battery cable. Fig. 3: Be careful not to damage surrounding components when drilling 86806114.gif
    Fig. 4: The switch is secured by three screws 86806115.gif

NO I HAVE A LX470 WHEN I PUT THE KEY IN IT TURNS ALL THE WAY OVER WITHOUT MAKING CONTACT.INSIDE THE IGNITION CASING BEHIND THE SWITCH,THE LINKAGE SEEM TO BE BROKEN.How do i repair this problem?


The ignition crank shaft is broken inside the Steering Column Lock Assy. You will need to buy a new assy (cost appr. $202.21) and 2 steering lock bolts (cost appr. $4.96 ea) at a Toyota or Lexus dealer. Call either dealer for best price and availability. To replace you'll need to remove the black snap-on panel below speedometer then remove the screws securing the driver side dash. Behind the dash is a steel plate. Remove that and remove the steering column covers by turning the steering wheel to access the screws. You'll see that the SCLA is secured by 2 break-away bolt (this is an anti-theft feature). Use a dremel tool with cutting disc to make a notch in the screw head to remove with a flathead screwdriver. If this doesn't work your other option is to cut the bolts where the assy bolts together. Remove the broken SCLA and remove the key FOB and install into new SCLA. If your mechanically incline this should take about 2-3 hrs. and save you $300-400 in labor cost.
