J.D. As has been stated already, yeah, they'll all interchange. I haven't yet tried to disassemble the lock cylinder itself to see how it goes together, or re-key it, but I did figger out it's prolly more trouble than it's worth, since I already had a couple extras from having to buy new switches, and just using the old lock cylinder so I'd have the same key. That didn't fly when the key broke off in the old cylinder on my 750; couldn't get it out, so I've got one set of keys for the ignition, and the old keys for the rest of the locks.

And I know I'm not the only one that's got extra brand new lock cylinders with keys layin' around; after the second or third switch rebuild, several of us have gone ahead and bit the bullet and bought a new switch assy.

Yes, all model years of the ignition switchs are interchangeable between each other.

This is the link from wib714`s sigline for rekeying his helmet locks.

Not really any info about disasembling the ignition key cylinder, but some info about moving pins in a cylinder to get it to function.


Here is a link to Crobins gallery with ignition switch pics.
Mostly pics of the bottom, not so much of the keyed cylinder portion.
