  1. I know I'm digging up this old thread, and not to be a nuisance, nor for random bumps, but because I wanted to give an update in case anyone is still having this difficulty. There was some questioning about my method. I just want to provide more support for this method. After riding through another winter in the suuuuuper rainy Portland weather this year, my ignition lock/cylinder was becoming less and less compliant. I almost couldn't get the key in and out. A couple of weeks ago, I saturated the cylinder with DuPont Teflon spray. Worked the key in and out and it was a little better after a few minutes, but not perfect. Over the course of 3 days, riding the bike as I usually do, the lock performed as it did when it was brand new (14k miles on it now)!
