Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** ***** happy to help / advise -
Im afraid there is no easy way round this... you cannot unlock the steering without the key - you cant even remove the barrel without the key as it has to be turned to pos 1..
The only way is to remove the lock complete - the whole body. This involves removing the cowling to expose the lock - then you will see its held on with two bolts that you will need to drill out - they are sheer head bolts - so , no heads on the bolts.
On occasion someone has replaced the lock with ordinary bolts - in which case you will see heads and they are easily removed - If not though - then its as above to remove it Im afraid. You drill the bolts through until the lock casing comes loose / drops away... then you are away.
Im sorry there is not another way - short of getting another key to suit that lock -
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
