Question Ignition barrel repair ?

My ignition lock barrel was damaged today when someone tried to steal my Hyper. I was wondering if anyone has had a barrel repaired by a locksmith, instead of replacing it and the fuel cap barrel via Ducati and if so where you happy with the result ?
If anyone can recommend a locksmith in Melbourne for this sort of work I would appreciate that, I'm in Preston but happy to travel to get the job done.

Sorry to hear that someone attempted to steal your bike - at least they did not succeed!

I have never had this particular issue, so could not make a recommendation to you. The only locksmith I ever used to get a early model ducati key copied has now gone out of business, so I couldn't help.

But thank you for your recommendation re Barnes. Will keep them in mind!

Forum member rharris over in Perth is a locksmith and can sort keys and no doubt barrels as well. Not just Ducatis.
