Once in place and tightened back up, I routed the cable to come out near the regulator rectifier with a black plastic electrical tie fashioned into a pull loop and attached with some heat shrink tubing to the free end of the cable. It's really easy to use and convenient, too.
    Put one on your bike and you won't need the key lock.
    Finally got around to replacing the key lock with the pocket cable last evening. Haven't done the pull loop yet, but that's probably next. Thanks for the write-up!

    I did it and it's so much better than having to bend down on one knee and try and insert my key to lift up my seat in darkness to get out my clear eyepro for the night ride home. Thanks to edgyver.
