    I put my CBF 1000 away til spring and tried to start it . Key won’t turn to start. Tried both keys. Everything worked fine til fall came. Any suggestions will be appreciated

    Does the barrel get lubricated as part of the service schedule? If I was a gambling man I 'd wager not and what you're experiencing is some corrosion or other contamination of the ignition switch. Lubricate the barrel and key then jiggle the key to free the barrel.
