910 ignition switch

well my brute according to the paper is almost 10yrs(9yrs 10m) old got over 110k km on the clock, and my ignition switch is about to die , out of all my bikes over 100 , the brute's(sophia) has lasted the longest might get a thumb reader switch as a replacement

i have a form of dislexia as i have said plenty of time and it dont bother me .................. but im not stupid or a tard so dont try it on


MV Brutale's go faster than a crackheads dole payment and that's fast

I WAS A BIKER BEFORE IT BECAME A FASHION STATEMENT

Dang...not a component that wears out too often.
Find a good lock smith and have it rebuilt with better tumblers!!

Or is it the electrical contacts? in which case an occasional little spray of dielectric grease might be in order....

I only had one bike that did that........, it was when I had my old Suzuki GS 550 back in the early 80's and you could pull the key out of the ignition barrel while the bike was still running.

It jumped out on me one time while I was riding and I did'nt notice until I went to get off at the end of my ride....,had to use the kill switch to stop it and 'hot wire' with a bump start to get home!

Tumblers are relatively soft metal and the little springs can sack out over time. I was once told that using a titanium key (weight savings minimal - kind of a vanity thing) will wear out tumblers because the hard Ti keeps a sharp edge where the normal key metal smooths out on the edges.

Maybe a good lock smith can overhaul the tumblers.

Same "problem" on my Brute (2005) at 42.000 km.
Steering lock mechanism (counterclockwise) can be enabled in maybe 1 of 10 times, fortunately clockwise direction is operable without any problem.
