Ignition lock

My bike came with a push-button ignition switch. Can anyone recommend an ignition lock (with a key) that will plug into the loom?

Thank you.

Rear wheel offset? 950 / 990

Hello

Does anyone know what the rear wheel offset should be?

Before dismantling I found the hub (disc surface) / rim to be 13mm, but cannot be sure that it was correct.

Thanks.
