SOURCE: remove ignition switch from 2000 harley-davidson

To remove the ignition switch turn the handle bar fully to the right, turn the ignition switch to access position and with the key in the switch depress the tab under the switch with a small screwdriver (the tab is to the lower left under the knob) and while pressing down on the key, turn the key counterclockwise about 60 degrees. At that point the switch will pull out of the housing.

SOURCE: replace harley fork lock

I would check with your local dealer to see if your lock is covered under the recall. Look to see if your lock has white on it. If it does then there's a good chance you can get it replaced for free. Other than that you need specialty tools to re align the internals of the lock to remove the top section. But to remove the top lock section you turn the lock all the way to the right. Push the pin ( under the top section ) in with a little flat head screwdriver, the while holding it in turn the ignition all the way to the left. It will pop up due to spring pressure.You can use a medium flathead screwdriver to turn the ignition off at that time

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

SOURCE: need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to replace it cause the key is lost

turn the ignition to the on position then on the bottom of the steering colum just under the lock cylender thare is a hole that leads up to the cylender. get a straight pick or somthing with a point on it and insert in hole apply a little steady force while pulling straight out on the cylender. i am assuming you are talking about the ignition lock cylender.

Look under the switch knob for a small square pin sticking down.  You need to push this pin up while turning the key to the left, and pushing this pin in will allow the lock cylinder to turn which releases the tab that holds the entire ignition knob into the bike.  I usually push this tab with one of those small pocket screwdrivers.  re-Installing the switch can be a real pain unless you make sure not to move anything while it is out, and even then the first time will be rather frustrating.  Let me know if you need more help re-installing it.

What is the fork oil capacity of a sv650 2002

This is Suzuki standard for a Pointy, sure someone will be along soon to say if Curvy is the same or not. Start at the standard air gap then see how it feels from there.

Front fork oil capacity (each leg) :
490 ml (16.56/17.25 US/Imp oz) for SV650
488 ml (16 .49/17.18 US/Imp oz) for SV650S

Fork oil level :
92 mm (3 .62 in) for SV650
94 mm (3.70 in) for SV650S

Sv650s stolen ignition busted how do i wire in a toggle switch and resister

well, the important question is, are you gonna use it for racing? if not, just buy a replacement barrel and key or if you prefer having one key for everything a whole lockset. Suzuki will charge for all 4 of your limbs and maybe your **** for that, so Ebay will be your friend. or if your not to bothered about OEM parts then check out or for pattern part ignition barrels ready to plug in. the racing route is easy enough, but if its insured most insurers wont pay out in a claim as theres no steering lock and the fact anyone can jump on and start it.

Just bought a 96 Suzuki LS 650 Savage and I got two keys, one for ignition and one for gas tank. Neither of the keys fit the fork lock, should I have recieved a third key?

Considering the age of the bike, there may have been a lock change at some stage (especially fuel cap) however a second key should be for the fork lock, not the fuel cap. Ignition, seat and fuel cap are usually the same key. The site link below is for a steering lock for your bike...ckeck the key shape with yours. Hope this helps, second link is for your bike with diagrams and part names in sections, steering stem section provided the first link with the lock, cheers
