97 900RR ignition replacement

The key pulls out of my ignition switch assembly when in the run position. I don't know if this is a standard feature and I only notice it when the key falls out on the highway but I'd like to change that. Also, I got a new, polished aluminum fuel cap when I replaced the tank which is better looking than the old so now I've got 2 keys for the bike.

Anywho, the ignition set is held on with 2 bolts with a 40T torx head. I think it's held in with red locktite. Anyone have experience with replacing this?

That is correct.

Complete pain in the ass with the fairings and fender on. Prepare to swear.

Well red locktite is destructive removal. Black is larger tool and blue is same tool. So if they are held on, they need to be drilled out and re-tapped. Is this true? Or are mine just tight and need some pb blaster/heat/persuasion?

They come out, but there will be an interference fit with the socket on the larger center tumbler portion, which makes it difficult to line up the torx head. I've removed them a few times, it doesn't ruin the threads, just really tight and awkward and a real pain in the ass. Heat will help, but obvious concerns with melting things nearby will need to be heeded.

Well I stripped it. Maybe I can weld a nut to it for better leverage? I don't think I have a large enough extractor for those

Sh!t, that sucks. Now it's just a matter if using whatever it takes to get them out.
