Hey people! im new to the old GSXR'S, Bought a K7 1000 yesterday i have 1 problem the steering lock doesn't seem to lock? Anyone had this problem before? The key clicks to the lock position and i can see the little pin come out when im turning it to the lock position but once locked i cant pull the key out?? Any ideas? Cheers Jase.

Don't really know but as a wild guess the pin isn't coming out far enough. Do you have the steering turned all the way to the left? If so you might try some WD40 on the part of the lock where the pin comes out to see if it loosens anything. People here generally advise against WD40 down the keyway.

P.S. I guess that the slot in the frame head could also have something in it that's keeping the pin from extending fully.

You should have to push the key in about 1/8" to turn from OFF to LOCK. Once there the key should pop up to the previous height. At that point you should be able to remove the key or turn it further to the Park position.
