Question about 1988 Yamaha FZR 1000
Has your bike ever been stolen or are you aware of an attempt to steal it? It sounds like the ignition switch was severely tampered with. Does the switch look like somebody tried to hammer something into it? Are any wires going to the switch pulled out? It may be a failed attempt at hotwiring.
Right off the bat I think that you need to get a replacement ignition switch installed ASAP. You may want to consider having the police look at it if it looks like there was criminal activity of some sort on your bike.
If there is any good news, it is that if you can prove that somebody messed with your bike, your insurance should cover the repairs. Good luck.
