Just purchased a 2012 RT last Thursday. The steering lock does not work when turned left but works easily when turned right. Anyone else had this problem? If so is there an easy fix or something the dealer needs to do?

I can always have the dealer check it out under warranty. Thanks for any advice.

Doyou mean when you point the front tire as far left as possible it locks and when you point it far right it doesn't (as sitting on bike)? Thats normal on all bikes. They only lock in one direction, usually left.

Just the opposite when I turn the handlebars all the way left the steering lock will not work, all the way right it works.

I've tried wiggling the bars, key, going back to right and then left nothing works. The key almost turns completely to the lock position but doesn't quite get there. May be an issue with the ignition switch.

Looking for a fix but can wait till my 600 mile service and have them check it out.
Thanks for responding
