Changing the pannier locks
« on: April 13, 2019, 10:02:41 PM »
Can anyone please tell me in a few easy steps how to change the locks on panniers.  I'll be picking a set up soon and I have the new locks ready.

A picture or two would be very helpful if you have any...sorry if it's an old thread, from what I've read so far, I am not clear, hence the request for a picture...a thousand words and all that :440:

Sorry Mark. Doesn't help ... I had my locks on my 2014 bike panniers adjusted to take my 2018 bike key in the kawasaki shop at bike swap over.

Are yours new or second hand? If second hand are they coming with a key or are they unlocked?

The link below should help you ... Scroll forwards to 6 minutes.

Thanks David, I've been watching Jonathan's video before and thought it was straight forward.  I didn't realise you couldn't take the key out without the panniers being locked.  A spare key being cut might be the best option.  When I read the links on the Versys site, comments were made like, it was easy and my lock was changed out in 5 minutes...etc, maybe it's not as straightforward as suggested, hence my post.

Thanks Cimaj, that's the link I found.  As I haven't seen the panniers yet (still to pick them up), I can't visualise the screws to be removed as suggested in the link, hence a request for a photo or two.

Looks like I will need to get a copy of the original key to help me along...shouldn't cost much from a locksmith.

The rest of the setting up is just tinkering and focus to get it right, so will be manageable.

If you have new locks to put in just use a large flat screwdriver and turn the lock 90 degree. When inside you will see 3 screws undo these and you can remove the outside cover (it is also held in place with sticky pads) you can then get to the bottom of the lock. Use a small flat screwdriver to push the brass retaining pin in.
Sorry can’t show any pictures as I am away on holiday.
