Luggage locks

Is there a way to re-key the luggage locks? I've got three keys, now. Would like to get it down to just one, if I can.

JV,

Nice to see you made your way over here to the Sprint forum.

Let's see some pics of your bike.

It's a pain

I've got the same problem. Guy I got my bike from replaced the ignition switch. Now I have a key for it, an old key for the gas and seat lock, and the key for the luggage. Took me four or five days to get used to using them. Arrrrrgh!

I was born with nothing, and still have most of it.

Matching keys isn't difficult but all the locks must have the same type of core.

Example: My bike has an ignition key and a steering lock key that have different lock cores. These can not be matched. A locking gas cap did not come standard but I bought one after purchased one and that core is also different from the other two so it can not be matched to either.

I believe that if all the locks are the same relatively inexpensive model it can be done by replacing the locks with three that will use the same key. If they are a more expensive variety or too built in then a locksmith may be able to re-key the locks to all work from the same key.

Your problem is a bit different in the same way that your car key is different from your house key. To the best of my knowledge you will have to have a dealer. Be prepared to provide proof of ownership and you should be able to get them to reconcile all the vehicle keys that will match on your model bike.

Ok, I found a thread on the forum that led me to this page: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201774

According to the OP and OnD, that process is pretty similar to what we have to do for the luggage locks. The significant difference, near as I can tell, is that we don't have a hole into which a paperclip can be inserted to release the core. I believe we will have to remove a couple of small screws to release the core from the lock mechanisms.

I'm going to try one tonight. I'll take pics and post after.

Well, it didn't work out as well as I had hoped. Pulling the locking barrel out was a piece of cake. Remove three acorn nuts in the box to remove the latch, then open the latch, remove two small Philips screws and the locking pawl, and it slides right out.

Unfortunately, my ignition key was thicker than my luggage key. And the grooves in the keys were in exactly the opposite locations. So, where the luggage key had the groove on the bottom left and top right, the ignition key had the groove on the top left and bottom right.

Grr... Not sure if I can fix this. Don't think the notches inside the barrels that correspond to the key grooves can be changed.

Hi jvswan, How about this set of locks for panniers in the UK but on sale on ebay. Luggage locks are different from ignition. Cheers Paul

Hmm... So, those luggage keys are exactly like the keys for my luggage. Maybe I've been operating under a false assumption, here. When getting a bike from the dealer, do they not have a single key for the luggage and ignition, seat, gas cap, etc? I had thought that I'd be able to set it up so that I have one key for everything. Perhaps that's not reasonably possible.
