DRZ400 Steering lock

Hi does anyone know if the steering lock on a DRZ400 it the same as the locks used on KTM's?

I just used a dremel to get my old lock removed (took around 30 seconds) really shocked at hos weak the locks are!! but i need one fitting for the MSVA test.



Since when where steering locks mandatory in the UK?

The bikes gotta go for an MSVA test with VOSA as it's an import

Great yeah the bike will fail the test if lock not working :-(

remove it and plug the hole with a piece of plastic. install a lock and chain to the bars to the frame. it will be functional.

All sorted now, drilled out the old lock (they really are useless locks!) and bought a new one from suzuki with keys.
