Is this for a bike that you stole?
I believe you have to drill out the security bolts for the old ignition. The new ignition should come with standard bolts.
BTW, a kit (on eBay for instance) also includes the tank cap, and the rear cowl lock.

No it's not stolen lol my co-worker bought it at an Auction in 2015 as a project and never got around to doing any work. It had no keys so he bought a new ignition.

I also have no key for the gas tank so if u have any idea on how to get in there that would help. I need to eventually replace the tank as it's dented but before I invest in parts want to make sure the engine is sound.

Aside from this I need front forks. Fairing, tachometer and headlight assembly.

I'm from Toronto Canada and I don't know where to source used parts

Cool.
If I were to attempt this, I might get some cheap lock-set off eBay, like this:

(You will need to make sure it fits YOUR bike, I just quickly searched without verifying fit)


That should include everything you need and be able to use one key for everything.


Someone here should PM you the service manual, which should explain how to remove the ignition, the gas cap, and the cowl lock.
It's not that hard to do.


AFAIK, the ignition has two tamper resistant bolts that will need their heads drilled out (from behind).
My guess is, it is similar (or identical) to this:
