2 questions - ignition switch and fuel cap lock

A couple of quick questions for the experts. Does the ignition switch attach to the triple tree with torx bolts. My Hondas did but I can't tell with the 03 zx7r I'm working on now. Also how much of a pain is it switching the lock cylinder in the gas cap? I'm debating on getting a whole new key matching setup for the rebuild I'm doing.

Thanks in advance.

They are breakaway safety bolts on the ignition switch. The head breaks off at torque when they install them. It is time to get out a dremel, or as I do with an end mill in a drill press. The cylinder is not that tough. Just work carefully to not lose the pins and springs.
