So, Mo got a "new" ride last weekend. Black 2006 Street Bob. We've been so freakin busy he hasn't had time to ride much as of yet. So, he takes it to work today, and when he gets into the lot, he goes to turn the key, (barrel key, and sadly still had the fob attached) and it's gone. Only had one key when he bought it, he asked. We think it may have been a repo, cause the dealer said they had to have a new key cut. Anyways, had to call off work, and come home. He's got it out there with the relay and a fuse detached in order to shut it down. Going to check in the morning for costs, but suspecting it high. He's thinking about just replacing the ignition instead. It's got the alarm system, but he really doesn't care about having one of those. He has replaced a few ignitions, both on the Sportster and the Superglide. Has anyone done one on his year/make? He can't find any instruction videos that really show the entire process. Thanks!

WC, I've no experience. I just wanted to say I agree it will be pricey. I also want to say the alarm ain't needed. A pro will know how to remove the entire ignition without setting it off, so, like many things, it only keeps the honest honest.

Lol! Right?! We contacted the dealer this morning. Key fob is only $50. Got to purchase the ignition somewhere, too. He'll be installing it, that's why we need an instructional video. Heck, not even one week in, and putting money into the damned bike. Smh.

Haven't had my Dyna in a while, but I think this is the switch and key.

Got to looking around, there are a bunch of "fix my hog" videos on YouTube. If it is the fork lock ignition switch, the video says you have to remove the front forks
to get to the locking mechanism to replace it. If it is the top ignition key there are videos on how to replace the switch. I've found a couple of key assemblies on E bay
and Amazon for under $40 bucks.

Happy hunting, and get Mo back on 2 wheels, from the look on his face he needed that new ride. ALSO, you were smiling a LOT on your new scoot

He's been to you tube, having trouble finding one that actually shows which direction the ignition is coming out through. They skip. He has decided to relocate the ignition to the top on the dash. It's on order. We'll see how this goes. (rolling my eyes, and keeping my fingers crossed!)
