Broke key in ignition

So I rode my 99 CBR F4 the other day with no issues and when I parked (bear with my limited knowledge) I tried to lock the steering column not knowing that I needed turn the wheel completely to the left side, my key snapped off into the ignition switch.

Has anyone experienced this? And does anyone have a write up or anything to take off the ignition switch? I ordered a set (gas tank cover/ trunk lock / ignition switch and keys). Any help would be appreciated, I know its dangerous information to explain but if anyone can PM with info I can provide my insurance card and title to prove I own the bike. thanks

OH I tried calling a lock smith after 1.5 hours of trying we came to the conclusion its stuck in the (push) part between "lock" and "off". thanks again.

try to take it out and take it to a locksmith to redo a key. Replacing the gas cap without a key is tricky hard.
