can you grab any part of the exposed key with a vicegrip?

The other way is to superglue the head of the key back on but you need to be very careful doing this. Obviously its not good if you use too much and superglue leaks down the key into the ignition. literally just a TINY dab on the head of the key then try to join it against the broken end and hold until it solidifies, while making sure nothing squeezes out to drip into the ignition.

With both methods you can spray some WD-40 into the ignition to help ease out the key a little better so it doesn't break off again while pulling.

Key extractor. There is a tool for doing exactly this job. Buy and use. Some places call locksmithing tools "thieves tools" and they are illegal without having a job which requires them. If you live in one of those places call a locksmith. Locks are very fragile.

good point. Like the guy on here the other day selling tires off a brand new ZX6, didn't even know what model bike they came off. Wouldn't tell us why he was "parting out" his bike. Gotta watch for shady people with low post counts.

Hopefully OP isn't.

None of the advice given (just realized Strider and I said almost the same things) would assist a bike thief.
