Well I need to get my post count up anywhere, so here goes: I slammed the saddle down on my new (to me) 2015 Sprint 50 and managed to render myself unable to unlock it with the key. After several days of lurking on here and trying all the tricks and even called roadside assistance, I grew desperate and sacrificed my seat cover (local dealer said the only way was to buy a whole seat). Anyway, I got the assembly fixed but the lock cylinder keeps falling out of the housing presumably because this clip isn't holding it, but I can't figure out why 1. I don't take a pic first and 2. Where the thing goes or if it's even what keeps the lock secure in the housing. Please don't beat up on me and it the needs to be via PM for code of silence reason then I appreciate that too.

Cylinder should be fully in and flat side of the clip in the slot...

Facepalm emoticon worked perfectly thanks, now all I have to do is figure out how to get it cranked after sitting for two years.
