so last night someone stuck a piece of wood in my ingintion on my 03 zx6r, didn't really have time to try and get it out since its in the bottom and i had duty today so i had to get to work. i called a locksmith and they said it would be about 120 to fix but i really don't want to spend that kind of money if i can do it myself but its my only transportation so i need to fix it tomorrow. i just need to know what the best way to do whether taking of the ignition taking it apart or any other ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks

agreed,, don't try to take it apart you can't get to the internals besides the points on the bottom and dooo not take that apart springs and balls will go everywhere. i know from experience lol.... either picks, lock smith for 120 or a new key and igiton for 120

how hard would it be to replace the ignition, just bolt on plug in and go?

Not quite. The cylinder is held in place by security fasteners and the only way to get them out is by grinding off the heads. Then you've got to put the new one in and figure out how you want to fasten it in. If it were me, I'd call a few more locksmiths and price them out and, worst case, I'd spend the $120. Good luck.

I replaced my ignition on my '04 636 last summer. It isn't that difficult, the hardest part is getting the torx bolts out because they don't have a head. I used an easy-out kit and they came out fairly easy. The plug for the ignition is under the airbox so I found it easier to just take the gas tank right off rather then try to prop it up.

i just replaced all 3 locks (ignition, tank and seat) last week....its really east...all i did was took a 1/4in drill bit and drilled the heads off..hit the top with a screwdriver and hammer, bam popped right off...

then just took the new ignition and bolted it back up with new hex head screws, then plugged it in, thats it...easy and fast....

Use a sewing needle with a curved edge and a air gun to blow air in as you pick it out from the bottom.

I like that idea. Then you can take the needle and shove it up the little pricks penis that did this and watch him try to piss it out
