08 550FE want to add a Key to the ignition?

I would like to add a Key or something similar to the ignition to disable the bike while parked.
I use this bike as a dual sport and leave the bike unattended and would like to be able to make it a little more
secure. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What about a hidden toggle switch that is tied into the ignition kill switch. Thieves may try to start it but it would not go. They would probably get discouraged and leave it thinking that the bike just won't go. You won't deter a hard core thief.

Compare the wiring diagram from -04 with the one you have for your bike and you will see what cables you can connect to. My guess is that even can use the ignition lock from -04. You have to fabricate a bracket for the lock but other than that it won't be that hard to incorporate a ignition lock.

Ignition lock 80011066000

I did it about 6 yrs ago The guy that I bought the bike from ( 04 FE450) gave me the wiring harness which included a keyed switch and a bracket to hold the switch and all the indicator lights I have no part #s I had to splice the keyed switch into the wiring harness Here are pictures and the wiring diagram

Note: With the key off if you push the start button the engine will still turn over but will not fire It will only fire when the key is turned on

Just be cautious about the bracket since it's for both ignition lock and speedometer and the speedometer for the -04 and -08 doesn't look the same so it might not fit.

FWIW my -04 FS was delivered with ignition key from the factory and it didn't turn over the engine with the key turned off.

If I'm parking it for a while out of eyesight, I clip a smallish padlock on the rear sprocket. In my garage, a huge padlock gets used.

You can lock your helmet with the same padlock aswell. It hangs upside down near, but just off the ground. My biggest worry is someone will spit in it.
