Will 97 CBR900 ignition fit a 98?

I only had one key for the bike I just bought as a project....and somehow managed to lose it somewhere around the house. I have been looking on ebay at new ignition switch+cap and keys together for a pretty decent price, but they all see to be for 93-97 CBR900 and other honda styles.

My question is will a 97 cbr900 ignition switch fit a 98 cbr900? I really don't feel like paying the $140 for the oem parts, and some of the ebay brands run for about $50.

Oh dang that's no good! Okay I will keep looking. Partzilla is where I normally get my parts since it's so hard for these older bikes. Thanks for the replies! I also have to figure out how to get my ignition off with stripped out hex screws :/

I think the only difference might be is the plug on the harness? I have a 4-pronged plug that connects the ignition to the harness.

They're not stripped, they're tamper-proof. Drift them loose with a centre punch.

Remove the top clamp and take it to a locksmith who will cut you a new key to fit it.

Ahh okay thanks. I will see what I can do. Itd be much cheaper to get a new key! I guess the owner before this guy I bought from tampered a little too much lol.

Moral of the story - ALWAYS have a spare key made.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
