after some research and looking over message boards of people dealing with similar issues. It comes down to this. If your wheel is locked and your ignition is damaged (no possible way a locksmith could cut a key , etc.) your in some trouble. My bike was almost stolen. The scumbags punched my ignition, cut my ignition wires. Striped the 2 main screws mounting ignition. Only options really is to cut/drill out the screws yourself. Bypass the ignition totally. Or go broke paying your local Honda cycle.
