Ignition switch alignment

Hi,looking for some help please,while i was reinstalling my switch i turned the knob before i had it fully seated,now i cannot get the knob and shaft to go down home while i have the bars in the steering lock position,i made up a tool which i saw on you tube which allows you to switch the ignition through the three positions while the knob and shaft are off and i find that my position are out by around 45degrees,i will try and explain ,when while using the tool the bike is switched on but the tool (which would face the same direction as the knob when seated ccorrectly)is faceing the off position,this then means that when i lock my bars so to reinstall the knob and shaft the inner makings of the switch are not in the right position to allow them to fit fully home, i am driving 2006 streetglide which i forgot to mention and am installing new bars,any advice would be much appreciated thanks.

Re: Ignition switch alignment

While the following is for touring model, is your ignition switch setup similar?
