R1200ST side case latch


Recommended Posts

Mine broke today when I was opening it. The plastic paddle handle snapped inside the case. The right side case, that is. These have always been stiff to open and close. Not what I would have expected for the royal price for them.


So, are parts available to rebuild these latching mechanisms or can I get a replacement latching mechanism?

Thanks for the information. Any idea why these latches are so stiff? It seems to me that the stiffness is part and parcel of why this part broke.

Chris, not sure why your latches were so tight but as a rule if you use your knee to push the cover in towards the case that will unload the latch mechanism enough to make the latch easier to use..

The ones I have seen with stiff latches were caused by a combination of cover loading on the latch & poor design..


You can lubricate the mechanism & latch parts & that usually helps for a while but the stiffness will usually return at a later date..
