    Cold Weather and Sticky Locks

    I noticed that in really cold weather, I can't put my steering lock on and find it very hard to easily open and close the single seat unit on my Duke 390. The ignition is fine though.
    My dealer tells me that this issue of locks becoming sticky and hard to operate in cold weather has been seen on 125s before, so as soon as my bike comes out of hibernation, it's off to the shop for a full lock replacement.
    I guess cold weather is not an issue in Pune!

    Penetrating oil usually does the trick for sticky locks, but hopefully you get it sorted soon.
