Hi Whitehendrix Could you please give me some advice as to how to remove the ingition switch on my zx11 2000 mod. I'm a daily rider and the other day at work the key would not start up the bike. I checked the battery and it was fully charged. This has happened a few times before. The key would not bring up the ignition lights. After playing with the key a little the ignition lights have come up and I've been able to crank it up. This time however no go. Anyway I looked at my manual and it shows no info on removal, sad 'cause here in Austalia locksmiths charge an arm and a leg! and I want to avoid talking it to them. Anyway I got as far as removing the steering but I can't see any allen key bolts or nuts to remove the ignition off the steering. Could you please spare a little time to tell me how to do it. I go back to work in 5 days and I am desperate. Thanks mate. Mick.
