Ignition is stuck

My ignition is stuck.

When I insert the key to turn it to the "On" or try to lock the steering it won't move. Feels as if the key hits something and doesn't go in all the way so it doesn't turn.

I've tried:

Turning the handle bars (left and right, straight)
WD-40
Blowing it with compressed air
Graphite Powder
Making a new key

Any other options besides replacing the ignition? Only logical thing I can think of is to find a locksmith who works on motorcycles/cars and take the ignition triple to him so he can fix the tumblers inside.

Re: Ignition is stuck

Maybe if I was track only I'd go keyless but I don't feel comfortable with it on the streets. Keyless gas cap on the streets yeah.

Re: Ignition is stuck

Mine, I have to wiggle the key every time I try to turn it just to get it to turn..... I have 4 keys for my bike (paranoid of loosing one), every one I have to do this with, even the original key.
