Fettle the tumblers? Forgive me but I haven't got a clue what you're talking about...

When older Yam ignition switches get a bit stiff, the key doesn't turn easy, you have to push it forward to turn it, Kwak are pull back, the tumblers are worn. A cure (bodge) is to strip the switch & trim the tumblers to suit, dab of grease & refit. You can continue to push/pull the key but one day it might not work. Likely cause is they were assembled dry. The proper cure is obviously a new ignition switch. My 25 year old grey import traillie gets fettled best I can, spares are not easily obtainable.
