Re: help with jammed steering lock

Get you and a buddy, one to hold the bike, and the other to stand in front of the bike grabbing the bars. If you turn the bars as hard as you can, you can break the little tab on the frame that locks the bars, you won't be able to lock the bars again though.

Re: help with jammed steering lock

There was a thread on here a couple of days ago were that 'tab' had been broken off, Bladeracer said..No problem welding it back on, but possibly wouldn't comply with insurance....remember insurance policies in OZ are different to many other places.

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Re: help with jammed steering lock

thanks for the tip guys, bike is getting picked up through insurance today though so i'll leave it up to the tow truck driver, might have a trade secert up his sleeve.

At least since the police have pulled prints off the bike insurance won't be an issue.
