    Wondering if anyone has experienced this and can help. A quick rainshower popped up while I was at work and my bike was parked out in it. Upon leaving that night 6 hours later everything was fine until I got home and shut the bike off - the key acted like it didn't want to come out of the ignition. I messed with the next morning and it still wants to "hang-up" in the ignition switch and doesn't come out very easy. Does this have something to do with the rain getting the ignition switch wet or am I just over-reacting - before all of this I never experienced the key being that tight and not wanting to come out.

    Use WD40 to displace the water, and perhaps a hairdryer on the low setting. WD40 leaves very little "residue" so as to not attract dirt.
