Ignition switch

#1 Unread post by NorthernPete »

Anyone know if I can/where I can buy a round hollow key ignition switch? I want to be able to turn the key and then remove it. I'm tired of jingling keys up front. I see Harley uses one but it looks like the key has to remain in the ignition when on. I just want a key I can hook onto my key chain, turn on, pull out and return it to my pocket. I'm open to a pingel (sp?) style switch as well. Thanks.

One of those universal three way key switches should do the trick. Just jerk the key out and from then on it just pulls out.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
