I left Barry's house close to midnite Sat after meeting Fiptaz (nice to talk with you BTW) and I could physically turn the key in my ignition switch. I had to heat it with a lighter.

Sup wit dat?

At least it's not a suzuki ignition. One of the few complaints I have about my bike(s). After so many uses the ignition just becomes a bitch to turn and I have to sit there like I've got an obsessive compulsive disorder flipping the key back and forth until it finally turns. Same thing happened to the katana. I asked a guy at the shop about it and he said he's seen several suzukis with the same problem. :confused

My 03 600 had the same problem. Sometimes I had to mess around with it for a few minutes, other times it turned on the first try.

I don't know what the hell "shot the lock with moly" means. Translate that for my dumbass. :D
