Pictures?  I did mine on my dt400e and if you have the swing cover you will need to pry the little pin out of the cover by slipping something between the cover and frame if it's like mine.  I might just drill and tap mine for a small bolt if I have to do it again.

Thanks, My cover is off missing I think the cylinder should just slide out with the key in It may just be seized up from lack of use I'll soak it and keep trying

Perhaps... Yamaha had a "core" key to put in and remove the core.. Even a locksmith would figure that out for you.
