Hello all!
Some may remember about a month ago my Tiger was stolen, but fear not for it has been recovered! I now have a new problem, the thief drilled out the ignition, the gas cap, and removed the seat lock. I am wondering how I should go about fixing all this... A friend said to take it to a locksmith to get the locks fixed, and ill just buy a new seat lock.
I would like to swap out it all, but am worried about ECU matching a new key? Is that a real issue?
Attached are pictures, I would appreciate any advice and tips I can get, and if you know where I can find a new set of locks and keys please let me know!
Thank you for your time  :015:

ECU don't care about what key's/locks used.  It's only linked to the sensors and the instrument cluster.

You can purchase all as a set
Fuel cap
Ignition  barrel
Seat lock

What about pannier locks?

To get the ignition barrel out:

The triple tree
The side fairings
The seat
The tank
The air box
All have to be removed

Then disconnect battery

Disconnect ignition wire plug located under the air box, located at  right side of frame, near back underside of the air box (cyl 3)

A staked screw holds the ignition barrel into the triple tree and needs to have a slot made using a dremel tool to remove it

The new ignition switch will have a replacement shear screw

Good luck and post some photos of the works please

Did they catch the dirtbag that stole your Tiger? :044:

The part number for the complete lock set kit is T2500266. The MSRP new is around $475 USD if you can still get one but there are a couple used sets on Ebay.

Here is a link to a diagram with the individual part #'s and new prices. Although it looks like everything is on backorder. :006:

The punk who took it was eventually arrested, awaiting trial.
Thank you all for the tips. I look forward to getting her all put back together, and will certainly post when I complete the job with some pics!

A Similar event happened to my
Suzuki GSX 750 ES when I was living in Israel, when I was 25 yrs old

Long tale bellow…..

for any bored members hahaha…. :001:

I parked my pride and joy, in the centre of
Tel Aviv at 2.00 pm, on a busy promenade to grab a quick lunch.

The bike fork was locked
fork U lock thru the front spokes
20 mm thick cable, locked to a 120 cm high-post
Alarm on

4 Arabs lifted it up and over the post and loaded into a Ute, siren blaring.

3 mothers with prams watching the scene, asked the thieves “what’s going on?”

to which the leader said:

“we are taking it to be repaired to our shop…”  :007:

By the time I returned 15 min later, the bike was gone and the wittinesses could not give me any sort of description of the thieves, registration, or Ute that was used!

In those days, the cost of theft insurance annual premium, was around 30% of the bikes value and no one could afford it…..
so my bike was gone! I was heart broken….

In Israel, newish cars and bikes are stolen and vanish every 10 seconds to be dismantled at Arab villages.

all the parts get cleaned and bagged with sku labels,  then sold back to legit repair shops as “used parts” to panel beaters and mechanics as insurance company’s encourages repair shops to use “used parts”, for reduced repair bills

With bikes, they often get re-birthed with forged documents, vin and registration…

when my bike was stolen I never thought I would ever see it again!  :159:

Till…..

Tel Aviv police contacted me 2 days later to say….they found the bike!

dumped on its side behind an apartment complex!

The bike was used in a high risk daytime bank robbery and discovered later that night by a local rock star called zvika pik

He like many citizens belonged to “armed  national guard” they volunteer their time and service to protect their towns…

(Side note…. his daughter Sharon, is married to Quentin Tarantino)


The ignition switch had a screwdriver hammered into it, the alarm was cut, fuel tank cap broken, but otherwise no damage!

I was so relieved when I got my bike back!

That experience instilled a habit that if I can’t see my bike, I lock it with disc lock, fork and cable lock to a pillar that can’t be lifted up and over…

The old saying goes… if a thief wants it bad enough, no lock will save it…. But why make it easy….


Glad your bike was found and on the mend!

Find a breaker, all the locks would be the same. 

Glad it's back.
