Hello MFP and Sierra1. I have heard of using Vaseline or hand sanitizer. I do know it helps keep water out. I have not tried it i was kind of afraid it would get too thick in the cold and not let the key turn. I have tried the deicer. It works on the locks the key is not frozen in. ha ha. have not had as good of luck with it when the key is frozen in the ignition. I usually cup my hands around the ignition and give it mouth to key so to speak till I can turn the bike off. I have been told I am not right but I guess you have love it or I would not do it. Great thing is summer is on the way! 7 Tuesday morning 11 Wednesday morning and 17 this morning! summer is on the way! Whew Hoooo!
