Thank you for the reply guys and @TrueFaith thank you for such a great explanation.
I'll definitely search for a lube like the Inox MX3.
I went on the link you provided but unfortunately they don't sell it in anywhere in Asia.
You guys have the same idea about the wet lube which should dry up later.
I'll try it and update asap.

zerocool, do you have access to eBay or an eBay-like auction site like Alibaba over there?
I just checked US eBay and they have multiple listings offering sales of Imox MX3.
Might be one way to get around the fact that it's not sold at retail stores in your country.

inox mx3 not available in india, but get it on ebay;

INOX MX3 Spray Lubricant 100gm (3.5 oz.) Aerosol Can | eBay

as TF points out, this is a high quality specialist product
from an extablished australian creator/producer..
can says; 'wont dry out or wash off with water'..

my locksmith recommended it for a gourmet english lock
[with chain, for bike outdoors] as i was concerned about
possible moisture damage.. using it in ignition lock
seemed a natural better alternative to wd40..

it has everything that opens and shuts, cfc free,
kosher certified[!] plus high technical qualities
and properties etc.. a thin tube applicator
for getting right in there..
mine cost $13 from the lockie
so ebay prices look good..

ive previously recommended wd40 as an
emergency solution to stuck keys etc
due to moisture/water, but this inox
is the real deal.. [they have other
anti-moisture products etc that
i havnt used, but others seem
to think theyre the ants pants]

I feel this is a typical problem with Negative return earthing problem. There is a cluster of Green wires attached to-gether and fixed to the RR unit fixing bolt. This develops loose contact and develops problems from Intermittent engine cut off, Fuel pump not starting, instrument cluster not coming on and doing self check etc,. The remedy is to run a 10mm insulated wire of approximately 60 CM in length from Battery Negative to The RR fixing bolt.....

@zerocool ~ I'm not convinced that the issue you're having, which is best described as an intermittent 'open' electrical circuit, is going to be solved by using a lock lube in the ignition key switch. Having read your opening post, and unless I'm misunderstanding the problem, it doesn't sound like you're having a problem with physically being able to turn the ignition key.

Rather, I'd suspect that you may have a faulty electrical ground issue causing the intermittent 'no electrical power - no start', as psr also describes in his post above. And while his post suggests running an extra ground wire from the battery negative terminal to the regulator/rectifier mounting (which won't hurt anything), I would also recommend checking & cleaning the ring terminal lugs of the main battery ground cable (Black cable) for corrosion where it connects to the negative battery terminal and at the other end of the cable where it connects the the engine. Also check & clean the 3 ring terminals of the Green wires where they connect at the regulator/rectifier mount.

i read ops post as having a possible component related to
key sticking, or read into his description that factor..
sticking key isnt electrical, but is one symptom
members have experienced over the years
[including me, bike outdoors, ride in rain]..
also considering others with key problems etc..

one small thing still on key movement,
dont forget to move key up, and down,
[think spring loaded] as part of your
key movement.. ie, deliberately press it
down into lock first, then turn,
stopping if theres resistance..

do this same up/down movement if/when
using spray lube etc for sticking key..
