IF.. its the mounting screws/bolts they're slotless.
Dremel a slot for a screwdriver.
If not, a quick fix I use is 2 part epoxy under the head, first raising the head as high as possible. Future removal/replacement of bolts the epoxy is easily removed.

Thanx for the reply, but after looking, I'm not sure where they are. Possible to send me a pic or 2?

Maybe this can give you an idea of what to look for.

2nd pix, that chinese hat on the upper-right center. 1 bolt on each side. Either cut a slot or flat cold chisel to turn it tight. IF you can replace it, all the better for future work. Use a lock washer.

I talked to a wing guy I mostly trust & he said it;s ok for them to b a little loose, altho I doubt that's true. I just wish I knew where the little blots are that I tighten up & what kinda tool that I use to do it.

Thanx

3 basic parts, outer securing housing, outer locks cylinder (or case) & the internal key pins. Which is loose?

Internal key pins is normally loose. Put your key in & you should be able to wiggle it around a little.

it's not really the ignition, but the part that holds the push start button

If you mean this...


Yes, it feels a bit loose in the handlebar even screws are tight. I’d say it’s normal...
