RT side case latch

Recommended Posts

I think I really goofed. Hadn't ridden in a little while, had forgot about period spray lube for the side case latch.

Went to open one and pulled too fast / hard on the latch. Something snapped inside the latch assembly and

now it doesn't latch.

 

A quick look sort of looks like there's no way to get it apart to see what wrong or hopefully fix it.

I'm going to look at the S/S online fiche and see if they break down any parts for it, but am not

hopeful.

 

Any experience or suggestions?

 

Thanks!!

I think if you specified which model bike you have, you may get an answer or two.

I thought this was for the 10 thru 12 R12RT?

 

Anyway, that's what I have.

Here's a thread that covers taking apart the side cases. The last post has a link to a pictorial. There may be additional pictorials and links in other responses in the thread. One response from way back has broken pic links.

 

Good luck, let us know how things go.

Note to self. Go slow, take pictures and make notes. A cardboard outline of the inside so you can put the screws

where they came from. I think there are 4 or 5 different lengths. Removing lid first is helpful.

Good luck.
