someone broke my 650R when trying to steal it.
I have 2012 Kawasaki 650 ninja, with about 2700+ miles on the odometer.
last week i took the motorcycle to the gym and parked it there and an hour later after i was done i went outside only to see that someone jammed something in my ignition switch and broke the thing and took the cover of the ignition.
i tried several times to use the key to start the bike, i only managed to unlocked it and key just move with no power from the battery or nothing, checked the battery and it was intact.
called the mechanic after towing the motorcycle back home to see how this issue can be resolved, and he informed that it might take up to 10 days to replace the ignition switch if the problem is only the ignition switch, which that means i have to spend extra to tow it to him and leave it there and probably will over charge me for the repairs, also i checked online and it will be around $310 for the whole assembly if i couldn't remove the switch from the clamp because of the torque screws.
i own the service manual for the bike and as i was going through it i weren't able to find a section where they explain how to remove the ignition assembly from the bike and what the process of troubleshooting it.
i would like some help in this issue:
1. can i get access to it by removing the fuel tank without messing the fairings ?
2. is it possible to remove the torque screws once i am able to take the whole thing off the bike? cause by doing so it could save me around $160.
any help is appreciated.
thank you guys
