i replaced a 00' r6 ignition, it isnt hard, the toughest part of it all is getting it off the bars. other then that just follow the ignition wires and it should just disconnect (male and female connections)then once you find where it ends take off fairings and whatever else is in the way, plug in and reverse process. I know it might sound difficult but it really isnt, just do it you cant make it anyworse, and as for getting new ignition, i went to a salvage yard and bought it there, it is half off msrp with everything you need ignition, gas cap, new lock for rear seat. hope this post helps. later.
