Look under the switch knob for a small square pin sticking down.  You need to push this pin up while turning the key to the left, and pushing this pin in will allow the lock cylinder to turn which releases the tab that holds the entire ignition knob into the bike.  I usually push this tab with one of those small pocket screwdrivers.  re-Installing the switch can be a real pain unless you make sure not to move anything while it is out, and even then the first time will be rather frustrating.  Let me know if you need more help re-installing it.

    When the key/lock is released and removed from the bike, don't turn the key, just set the assembly to the side. After you remove the key/lock assembly, unscrew the top washer then pull the remaining assembly straight up. Try not to move any part of the second assembly and it should slide back into place with no problem. Replace the assembly in the opposite manner you took them off. When you replace the key/lock, line up the shaft and push it in, then turn the key to the right to engage the retaining pin.

    I had it done in a couple of minutes. Not a big project.

Seems to me that it takes a special tool to maintain the alignment of the lock when you take it out. I'm not sure. I'd advise calling a dealer and talking with the service department.

Good luck

SOURCE: remove ignition switch from 2000 harley-davidson

To remove the ignition switch turn the handle bar fully to the right, turn the ignition switch to access position and with the key in the switch depress the tab under the switch with a small screwdriver (the tab is to the lower left under the knob) and while pressing down on the key, turn the key counterclockwise about 60 degrees. At that point the switch will pull out of the housing.

2008 fxdl lowrider lost key and forks locked any way to unlock got new after market switch to install


Simplest way is to go to a dealer, give him the VIN number and get the correct key to fit both lock and ignition switch. A new set of keys is cheaper than a steering lock and ignition key, even aftermarket ones.

Remove the top yoke/ fork clamp nut and clamp bolts, then the handle bar clamps, remove circlips from fork tops if it has any (remove fork caps if their diameter is larger the that of the fork tubes leave if thay are the same) slide the top yoke off past steering lock unclip switch wiring coupler.

Fork lock locked up won't unlock


I don't know if this will help. It was sent to me by a friend of mine and I've never tried the procedure. I do not work on these ignition switches and fork locks. This is for a newer model but it may help. Good Luck. Steve

Flhtcui key switch install, new out of the box


I've posted this before. I got this from a friend of mine and like I said before, I cannot attest to it's accuracy. I do not work on these types of ignition switchs. In the past, they required a special tool to align the switch that I didn't have. Anyway, this is what I have on the switch. I hope it works for you.

Good Luck

2005 FLHTCUI key switch replacement. Mitchell's Harley Davidson wrecked my bike. Last thing they did before I took it back was break the key switch.


I can't swear to the accuracy of these instructions as I don't mess with the later Twin Cam bikes. I work on the older Shoveheads, Panheads, and Ironhead Sportsters that the dealers won't work on. But, a friend sent this to me. Maybe it works. Good Luck.

I am having trouble changing the fork lock on my 2000 heritage soft tail.My ignition switch went bad so I bought a kit from my HD dealer. The kit came with switch, plastic plug, and fork lock. I changed...


Ok, this is what the service manual says.

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.
2. Loosen fork stem bolt. Let fork stem drop approx. 5 inches. (127mm)

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug.
4. Unscrew set screw
5. Insert key in lock and turn partially
6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.
7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.

Good Luck
Steve

Replace harley fork lock


The fork lock is part of the ignition switch assembly. You have to remove the swich (tricky little button under the switch with the switch in accessory position I think) after which you remove that lower inner fairing schroud that has your rear speaker, cruise, accessory, and passing lamp switches. then remove the lock. The lock has a harness that needs to be unplugged. I'm uncertian if the outer fairing needs to be removed to unplug. you will know when you go to unplug it.
