Ok, now i\'m confused???

On other bikes i've had when you want to lock the steering with the key you either can lock it to both sides or you can only lock it with the steering to the left.
But on my 999R i can only lock it if i turn the steering fully to the right.
I found that strange so i checked on the owners manual and it says it lock to the left, so now i'm like WTF!!!

Is that normal?
JPM, Dave W, how does it work on yours?

dont worry ducnow, if they are like the 916 series bikes and if I remember right, the steering lock doesn't work at all on the steep head angle.

You serious ?? Well..... since it's a Ducati nothing can be excluded.

But this doesn't look like an upside down yoke, does it?
If a yoke is what i'm thinking.........
