05 CBR600RR: Theft broken rear seat key hole, options?

As some of you may know, I just recovered my bike from theft and am beginning to work on restoring/replacing the things they damaged or broke. I was able to remove all the fairings last night except the tail section because the key hole has been messed up pretty badly, likely by a flat screwdriver or whatever the thieves used. There's nothing valuable in there but a Ridesmart/Fastline track schedule and a small bag.

The goal is to get the tail section off to replace it with another, OR, sand down and repair the tail section for use again. Here are the requirements:

1. I'd like to not break the seat or rear tail to remove it.
2. I'd like functionality of having a rear seat and compartment still. (So Floyd, no straight track fairing swap! )

Should I just get a locksmith out there to get it off then replace the cylinder with a different one, different key? Wouldn't one have to come out anyway to setup a new lock cylinder? I'm just looking for the easiest and most cost-effective option. Thank you in advance M-H.

Is the lock cylinder still there? You may be able to drive another screwdriver into it and just twist it to release the seat. If not, is the drivers seat off? Sometimes there is enough space to reach back and grab the release cable..

Hung, I had the same problem with my GSXR but I manages to get to the release cable. Where are you at? I may be able to swing by and help. PM your info.

So you can't use your key to unlock it? Do you have a spare key you can junk? If so hammer in the key and turn. If the thieves tried to shove a screwdriver in there more than likely the key guides are marred but if you can get the key past it than you can unlock it. The tumbler shouldn't be messed up unless they really tried to hammer In a screwdriver. Bump key the thing if you can.

Other option is to get to the cable from under the seat. Pull/push on the cable and it should unlock.
