I had an old dirt bike many years ago with an ignition switch which jammed constantly.
In this instance security was not a major consideration so I dismantled the lock and removed the pins from the lock cylinder.
The lock turned so much easier and the bike could be started with the key (or a screwdriver in the key slot) but that was not an issue.
Moving forward, I understand the DL has an electronic immobiliser, well my 2015 does anyway.
The bike cannot be started without the correct key so security is somewhat key dependent.
What's to stop using my previous technique of removing the lock pins (to overcome the jamming of the lock cylinder) as the bike still will not start without the correct key.
I guess if I am the only person who knows about the lock modification then it is reasonably secure.
