Hi Anonymous, disconnect battery negative cable from battery. If you have an early FLSTF remove set screw in odometer knob, remove knob, remove console housing. Four screws secure ignition switch to speedometer mounting plate. With masking tape mark position of a clock on the wires you remove from switch. Remove switch and replace with new one. Late models are pretty much the same but without odometer knob. Good luck

SOURCE: replacing ignition switch

You will have to remove the fairing, keyboard and
steering weight in front.
The switch is easy after that just two bolts
and the wire connector to remove.
Getting to it is the hardest part.

SOURCE: Ignition switch removal, I got a bike with no key,

Take one of the head light mounting bolts out and swing the headlight bucket out of the way. With a 10 mm socket on an extension reach up under neath the switch and unbolt it. Unplug the wire harness from the switch and take it off. The key code id stamped on every lock on the bike, gas cap, helmet lock, seat latch, and ignition switch. It is six digit number sometimes with letters. It is found on all the locks, example: 345A56 "A56" is the key code or 654321 "321" is the key code. All you need is the key code to have the key cut at a dealer or a locksmith.
