    Hi All,

    I have a 93 Suzuki RF600 and I want to get the top yolk polished however to
    do this I need to remove the ignition switch from the top yolk. I looks as
    if the ignition switch is attached with 2 pins that have a special locking
    washer on them and I cant see any way of removing these.
    Can anyone offer me any assistance of how to remove the ignition switch. I
    have some photos available if you need them to see what I am talking about.

    Many Thanks
    Dave

    Silly bloody question. So it looks pretty and shiny, like a shiny,
    pretty thing. :)

    No he hasn't. Mainly because if he did it would show the world the
    gayest purple rear wheel.

    A 600cc top yoke, that's a novel way of looking at things.

    I bet he poached the idea from someone with a bike worth polishing.

    Drain all the petrol out, then park it overnight in your local council
    estate. You'll be able to collect it the following afternoon from the
    nearest bit of waste ground - the ignition barrel will have been
    removed.

    1. The term is "yoke". FFS.

    2. WTF would anybody want a shiny chunk of metal right by the clocks,
    ready to reflect sunlight into the rider's face? The RF top yoke has
    a matt finish for a reason, you know.

    3. I guess that you want to remove scratches from keys rubbing on the
    yoke - if you're going to polish the unpainted section then it could
    be done without removing the ignition switch, if you're careful.


    I've had a look at mine and tbh can't see a great deal. If you want
    to stick your pics up on the web and provide the url then let's have a
    look and see your problem. There will doubtless be some sort of
    security fixing and I'm equally sure that someone here will have dealt
    with something similar.
    I'm always intrigued by fastener difficulties ;-)
