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 :)

I've got a Shoei GT Air on back order now as that one got a good report here on the Forum; but Santa has collared a few for his "Good" list and now the Warehouse is now dry of white one's till December.
Rob.

Maybe Santa is giving you a chance to reconsider the RF1200? Lighter, cooler, better visibility, and w/ the Transitions shield it's always just right :)

isnt the wheel lock and ignition key the same...or we talking brake disk lock....first thing i thought of is you have two keys one to start motor and another to lock steering.......so you dropped ignition key in fairing :nerd:
