How do you remove the steering lock mechanism from the steering head? I have no key. I have soaked it with PB Blaster and I don't see any keepers that would keep it from coming out. Suggestions?

There should be a number on the lock cylinder. Search e-bay for the key. Johnny

There is no number on the lock. Nor do I have the ignition key for this frame. This can't be the only time this has ever happened. There has to be a way to remove the lock from the steering head. I want to remove it prior to going to being powder coated. Any more ideas?

hum, I thought they all had a number on the lock itself. Is it possible someone installed (force fit) something that was not correct?

Is there a perpendicular pin that can be driven out?

I couldn't find one and I looked closely at both frames for a pin or clip and couldn't find one. If I knew what was holding it I would take a slide hammer with a screw and try to pull it out but I'm afraid I'll damage it and still not get it out. I took the frame to be powder coated today and thought I might take it to a local locksmith when I get it back.

No, it is the correct lock as both frames have the same lock and they fit into an indentation in the steering head. They might have a number but if so it is inside on the part I can't see. You can look at the picture I posted and see it is a very small lock so again maybe its on the inside.

There is a small "roll pin" Drill out the tumblers, then rotate cylinder and it slides out.
Kinda ruins a nice lock.

Here is what one memember did:

tommy10bikes wrote: The number maybe on the key section of the barrel lock which is hidden once the lock is inserted into the frame.

Im not sure if i should put this up but here goes, this has been done on my XT500 and on 2 or 3 others i have.
I have a lock set but here are the tools i used which im sure you can you can make by grinding down
an old set feeler gauge , the 2 flat levers are 3 to 3mm wide and 0.8mm thick.
The key is to get the small blade down the side of the barrel to stop the brass sections lifting too much,
once inserted you need to get the right angle pick in the key hole on the RHS and turn anti clockwise ,
this will put pressure on all the 4 brass section, whilst you are doing this insert the pick and press each
one of the blades left whilst keeping pressure on the anti clockwise pick.

You may feel the drum turn slightly , if it doesnt fully turn to the unlocked position get a flat bladed screw driver
and try turning it with that , worked for me but not straight away.
