Changing Sidecase Lock Question


Ziggy

Recommended Posts

Specifically, I want to know if there's a trick to moving the lock for my sidecase into the new latch mechanism I'm installing. I ground the rivets and have the old mechanism out, but all I remember from what I've read in the past is that you have to stick something in the little hole below the orange lock tab's slot to release it. Before I spray pins and tumblers all over my floor, I thought I'd press my pause button and ask for advice. Anybody done this before?

Do it with the key in the lock.

Stan, yes leave the key in the lock or you will have tumblers everywhere..

I just re-keyed my side cases & the hard part was removing the lock cylinder (it took a little picking around to get them out).. As far a putting them back in? I just inserted them (key still in cylinder), then wiggled them around while pushing a little & they went right back in..
