main switch removal

Recommended Posts

Wolfy07

I'm trying to separate my main switch from the top triple so that I can remove the wiring bracket that looks to be sandwiched between.  sounds easy enough... only instead of screw heads I'm seeing what looks like rivets?  Is that right?  Were these things pressed in to the triple?

@Wolfy07, are you talking about the key switch?  It looks like it is attached with three hex head screws.  I am not at home to check to see what mine looks like.

Those are tamper proof and will have to be drilled, chiseled or discumboberated outta there. I used an air chisel to lop the heads off and there's no going back. 

Those allen heads in the above diagram are for the top tripple fork mounts (pinch bolts) and the steering stem pinch bolt, not the iggy. The iggy is not available alone and must be purchased with imobilizer, seat lock and gas cap, haha. You can pop the whole top tripple off and flip it over if that helps accomplish whatever you're up to.

Those tamper-proofs are threaded though? For the sake of replacement?

Here is a pic for those who are curious...

They are threaded, but you'd have to replace them with something else. Here's another view of the holes when empty for reference.

I popped mine off to do a keyless race ignition and remove those fricken wire looms you mentioned. They don't sell those fasteners as a replacement I don't believe but you could certainly use a bolt.

Its  called a shear bolt.  You can buy them commercially.  We use them in some designs when you dont want someone to easily tamper with something.


Shear bolts are used in many industries where robust permanent security fixings are required. Wide range available from stock for...
