Ignition Relocate

Hello all. I've seen on Gadget's page the option to relocate the ignition, and I'm considering it as the handlebar risers I put on don't clear the key. I'm wondering if anyone has moved their ignition, but more specifically what did you do to cover the hole in the chrome cover where the ignition used to be? Pictures would be helpful. I've tried doing a search and didn't come up with anything super helpful. Thanks

m up by the speedo, I think that's stock, but my tumblers must be worn because I put the key in and turn it to the start position then the key slides out, I can shut it off without the key.

I think it is by design that you can take the key out after you turn it to the "on" position. I think this is so you can open bags after the bike is running. For now after I start the bike I just pull the key and put it in my pocket, and turn it off when I reach my destination. Works for now, but if someone else ever rides it, I have to explain the key thing to them or they will ruin the key when they turn the bars all the way one direction or the other.

With the key on, my lights are on, right? and if you take out the key, the lights are still on? so yes I could start and stop using the handlebar controls, but what about the lights?

When I stop, meaning want to park, I turn it off using the piece around the ignition, when I'm just stopping for a minute like to get fuel or something, I use the on/off switch on the handlebar and leave the lights on.

It's worked for me for 4 years, so.....

I turn mine to the almost off position. It shuts everything off and you can turn it back on without key.
