I think my ignition switch may be bad. I would like a few second opinions from you guys. I rode my bike to work on sunday and it was 34*F. When I started to leave the temp. had dropped down to 25*F, well when i started to put my key in I had to jiggle it for a few minutes to get my bars to unlock then again to get it to turn to the on position. I went home and tried to take the key out and that took a few minutes too. Now I can't get the key to go in all the way, it is like it hits something about halfway down. I tried to put a little WD-40 on the key but no dice.

you guys think i need a new ignition or is it just the cold (right now it is 14*F and it is in an unheated garage)

update: I took a lighter to the key and worked like new, now my question is, is there anyway to get the moisture out and keep more from getting in so this doesn't happen again?
