Mine has finally given it up. the connector on the bottom is done, and i'm tired of fiddlin' with it to get the bike running(and not being able to run at night, since you know, loss of lights and whatnot).

What's compatible and cheap? The original part (35010-449-305) seems to have been discontinued, or there's few new ones out there and they cost a ton. I was certianly hoping there was another(*cough*cheaper*cough*ebay*cough*) lockset out there, maybe from the GL line?

I have several extra switches here with no keys. If you want to send it to me I'll rebuild yours for you. I even have a new plastic cover for it. This way I can put it on my bike and be sure everything works before I send it back.

PM me if your interested and we'll get the details worked out.

I got your switch today. I ended up having to pull the chrome cover off too because the spring inside had broken and collapsed. I changed the center section too because it was all bent up from someone using a screw driver. Basically it's a whole new switch except the housing and the key. You should try to get a new key cut because yours is worn out and won't stay in the switch when it's on. The code is on the side of the switch.

Anyway, it's on it's way to you already. And yes, I tested it on my bike. It works just like it's supposed to.

Again, you are welcome. Hope you get it by Monday so you can go ride again.

Let me know when it gets there.
