Ignition Barrrel removal problem

I've managed to loose my only remaining keys for my bike, i've got someone that can make a new one from the barrel, as at some point
my bike has ended up with different keys for everything else except the ingnition, the problem being is theres no way to remove the barrel, where there should be star bolts i have studs with no possible way of removing them?

Hi blood biker

Post a picture of your fixings (studs?) so I can get an idea what you have, sounds like you  had sheer bolts fitted ?

Glad it's fixed, but for future info...

Ignition barrels are held on by secure bolts.  In the factory they look almost like a bolt with a waist below the head.  When you get them to the desired torque, the head of the bolt shears off and you are left with a dome with nothing to get a spanner on to.

To remove you need to drill through the middle of the bolt, insert a bolt extractor and hope you can get it out.

suffice to say, it's not a roadside repair...

Thanks for the info Iíve come across them on car ignition switches  but not on bikes
