Can you keep the old key cylinder to put in a new keyswitch? How would you go about doing that?

On any lock except the ignition, the cylinders can be easily removed and moved to a new latch. The cylinder on the ignition is made into the assembly.

True. On the Saddlebags, Unscrew the lock off with a screwdriver on the inside of the locking handle, and you can slide the locking core out easily with the key inside of push it through with your fingers. You can change them out or have some keys mage as needed. Can you get the keys thqat match the saddlebags? They are usually different anyway, and you have 1 Ignition Key, and 1 Saddlebag Key for all saddlebags. Hope this helps.

I lost my keys and had to have new ones made. I took out all my fairing and bag locks, and my ignition lock, and took them all to a locksmith. He made them match to 2 keys, for like $40 or $50. It's a lot easier to let pros do SOME things.
Good luck!

Yes it can be done however its not something I would recommend you try yourself this is a service we provide for dealers and you would have to find a specialist Locksmith to carry this out for you. As has already been stated it would be far easier to change the tumblers in the other locks. Provided that the key you wish to use slides into the lock (not turn it) it is a easy job toget them retumbled.

Thanks guys, I changed out the ignition switch and now I have 2 keys. One for the ignition and the old one for the bags, gas lidand trunk. I am ok with that combo.

Conley, was just cruising the forum and saw this thread.....its not too expensive or too much trouble really to order up a set of compartment and fuel locks that match the key code of your new ignition. There is a code # stamped on the new ignition and new key that can be used to ask on the forum if anyone has extra locks out there. I did this for a fuel tank lock that was missmatched on my 87 aspencade! Cheers
