OEM pannier locks
on: April 29, 2013, 06:13:34 AM
Can anyone tell me if the OEM panniers lock using the bikes ignition key please?

If they do then what happens when buying or selling them, can they be re-keyed like BMW ones or do you need to sell a copy of your own ignition key with them?

Q1. Yes, the OEM panniers use the ignition key - the locks are 'set up' by the dealer.

Q2. Ah - well - this is a good question. First of all you certainly don't want to start giving copies of your keys away, and since the dealer (or anyone with the patience) can reset the locks then the locks can be matched to another key.

In fact, come to think of it, who would you sell the panniers to but another CT owner (since they only fit the CT). In which case it ought to be possible for the new owner to have the locks set to fit their bike key.

Yes you can re-key them. In fact, if you buy the panniers and install them yourself, you are provided with all the necessary items (metal barrel sliders) and instructions on how to key the locks yourself. It is a farily quick and easy process.

You can order the key cylinder kit with this P/N : 08L55-MGE-800Y1, but I'm not sure how to removed when installed without destroying it.

If you can remove the cylinder key, then, it's not necessary to replace it as you can re-key them easily (provided you still have all the tiny stuff together).

Duplicating the key without programming it will not let you start the engine, the CT's key came with an immobilizer chip, but I understand the concern.

I'm happy with it... for me, it is not not a good system, we (or me) don't sell our box every time right? and I love the one key system.
