Stupid Question- Givi Keying

Luckily, my office (and my home) have secure parking. I normally only remove the key from my topcase when Iím staying at a hotel. It rides in the lock pretty much all the time otherwise (because the cases canít be left unlocked... the key cannot be removed unless the case is in the locked position).

Can the Givi topcase (v47 or v56) be keyed (with a kit or replacement tumbler) to use the Yamaha key?

A friend bought a new Kawasaki recently, and their kaw branded v47 had a kit that allowed him to convert the case to use the bike key.

Not a need, more of a curiousity. Thanks in advance.

No commercials. No dictators.

There are two types of Givi keys... one is a security key which has grooves in it and straight sides. Those can't be re-keyed. The older type has a red key that isn't all that long, and if the grooves in that key are the same as your ignition key, you can re-key them by changing tumblers. That is, if your ignition key will go into the lock, should be doable.
Some have done same with helmet locks. It's been a while, but once upon a time there was a tumbler one could get to match the grooves on the Yamaha key. Not sure where one can dig that info up.....

I had Harold email me his original instructions including pictures for re-working Helmet Guardian tumblers to match FJR keys. I'm working on it!
