Default Ignition Barrel fallen from handle bars

Hi all,

Not technical great with the names of the parts, but my ignition barrel has dropped from my handle bars. It looks like it's held on by two screws (no longer there). Obviously I believe this messes with my steering lock.

Is this easy to replace myself? (Honda dealer 20 odd miles away)

If so are the any tutorials floating around and what size screws do I need?

Any help greatly received.

Thanks

The ignition cylinder is held in by break off bolts for "security," but I find that a little silly on something so easy to steal. I believe you can take off the headlight assembly to get underneath and access it. Not sure about the size, unfortunately. Try threading an m6 bolt (plentiful on the bike) in there. If it fits, measure the depth and head to the hardware store. That's how I'd do it.
