This tool is a must have if you are working on and or removing the ignition switch on any Harley FL Touring models from 2003 to 2013

It is used to move the ignition switch from one position to another when the knob is removed, as a support to the switch housing while torqueing the switch nut during re-assembly and aligning the internal lugs of the ignition switch if the lugs become misaligned while working on FLHT and FLTR models. Sounds complicated, but it isn't.

The tool comes with good instructions and is very easy to use.

It is being used here to remove the parts necessary to have access to the other switches in the inner fairing cap assembly

The saddlebag and side cover were removed to get to and remove the Maxi-fuse and disable the battery.

The ignition switch knob was removed by inserting the key in the switch in the unlocked position and leaving it there.

The forks are turned all the way to the left and the knob is turned to the Fork Lock position.

While pressing the release button at the bottom left side of the switch, push key down and turn counter clockwise.

Lift and remove the knob and spring.



Gently place the thin end of the tool into the hole that the switch knob came out of. When tool is all the way in, turn it clockwise to release the fork lock.





Move forks all the way to the right and using a 7/8 wrench. Remove the nut from ignition switch followed by the collar and spacer.





Remove the screws on both sides of the inner fairing cap and lift it of the switch.

Disconnect the quick-disconnect.



When done re-assemble referring to the H-D Touring Service Manual for the correct way to install the ignition switch / lock parts that were removed. Pay attention to torque specifications

This and numerous other great tools are available from JIMS Machine, Camarillo, CA.
