2018 DL-1000 Sticky Key Ignition Lock

Hello Suzuki... FYI

2018 DL-1000 serial 308...sticky lock when using the key. Others here on this website complaining of the same issue, even with lubrication of the lock and storage in a dry garage..

Could be the key is not cut quite right ?

Have you tried both keys ?

Try not pushing the key all the way in or pushing in real hard to see if you get any difference in the action.

You could get another key cut then have a play by adjusting the stop points to see if it helps.
