Like the tittle says I broke the key off in the ignition of my 00 R6 , I was able to get the ignition turned to on to ride it home.  Looking for advice how to fish the broken part out and where to get a new key cut . 

Thanks

        I'd pull the cylinder and take it to a locksmith?

            I'm going to call a locksmith to see if I bring it down if they can attempt to extract the key

                Got my Mom to hook it up with her CAA membership.  They came to my place, extracted the key, and cut me a couple new ones! All for the great price of FREE!

                      Forsure, it would have cost alot more than the membership cost to have a locksmith come out and do the worth at an hourly rate.
