I dropped my wheel lock key somewhere in my fairing

Yes I did drop my wheel lock key in my fairing. I hope to look again when it cools off. Lord I hope I find it. I am not used to the cramped space of the starter. Is this some kind of undercover peek aboo design. I need a really small ring to put them both on so I don't scratch the tank and some tiny fingers to put the key in and turn it. Goodness!!!

I dropped my key in mine a few weeks ago when I was away from home and thought I was in trouble but after a few minutes looking around I found it, it's easy to do when you have a tank bag on and gloves

Just because I did it too doesn't get you off the hook, it just means we are both stupid

I've dropped 2 things in my fairing. I have one of those flexible 'parts grabbers' and was able to grab a rubber pad that fell in there. The screw ended up being completely out of sight, so I used a flexible magnetic parts grabber

These have been worth their weight in gold throughout the past few years - working on cars, bikes, even helping my piano teacher grab a bracelet from inside her piano
