    As you can see having problem with ignition on my 2017 950, Iíve tried WD40 & ABUS specialist lock lube

    Bike still under warranty but need to get bike to dealer as they wonít come to me, even tho their only 2 miles away

    Hm, I know it's not probably a good solution, but have you tried to press slightly the lock inside? Or spray some wd40 on the lock, not in the key lock?

    And the dealer give you some instructions? Or just "bring the bike here"?

    It appears that you are trying to engage the lock with the bars turned to the right. On my 2017, the only way to get the lock to engage is with the bars turned to the left (I just went out to the garage and tried this). Have you tried with the bars turned to the left?

    The steering lock is already on with bars turned to the right, so the bars wonít turn to the left

     ....could the bars being to the right be part of the problem. Manual says to put bars to the left when applying the steering lock  - perhaps being to the right has upset the locking process in some way ?
