Cutting the key off and putting it in the knob. What would you use to glue it in?
What would stop somebody from pulling that knob/key out, inserting it into the ignition, and starting your bike? When somebody first mentioned this idea of a key with a knob top (I think it had to do with the gas cap access panel when I read it) I assumed they'd do what you did with the key and knob BUT THEN glue the key shaft into the lock permanently.I potted mine in the knob with 2 part epoxy.
What he said. The key with the knob is too short to use in the ignition. I verified it. It can’t start the bike.The cut off key is too short to start the bike. For those who want something to worry about, I suppose it could be stolen, cut away from the epoxy, and a key then cut that would start the bike. The bike can also be loaded on a slide back wrecker and stolen a lot easier.
I like that knob design and style. Do you remember where you picked it up?I think this is one of the best and easiest mods I have done to my bike, especially since it costs less than $20! Like everyone said you can't start the bike with it so I just leave it in all the time.
