    Manually starting bike bypassing push button ignition.

    Hi all,
    I had an issue early days with the filler cap not opening keylessly, easy fix by removing the top two bolts.
    But this has made me think, is there a way of starting the bike with the key if the push button doesn't work.

    Thanks,

    Stu.

    Not too familiar with the gen 2 but afaik there is a backup ignition barrel somewhere on the bike under a piece of trim.
