Actually I just checked the owners manual for my 2011 and on page 3-6:I tried the graphite and it didn't help. I used some electric contact cleaner to clean out the graphite and whatever else was in the keyhole. After the cleaner had a chance to dry, I sprayed in some silicone (not WD40) and that seems to have solved the problem. Now another question. I notice that there is nothing to keep water from entering the keyhole on my bike. Shouldn't there be a little piece that slides across when the key is removed that closes the hole?
If you stick the key in the slot just a tiny bit you will find that you can rotate that thin 'tin' cover with the slot in it WITHOUT rotation of the switch mech.I don't understand this. My keyhole doesn't have a "lid". Can someone please elaborate, or provide a pic?
Teflon lubricant.My ignition key slot is getting sticky, for lack of a better term. The key doesn't slide in as easy as it once did. Any suggestions on what will fix it without gumming the works up?
