Saddle bag locks

So I finally put the blue lock tire on my saddle bags and top yesterday. The most difficult thing about the whole situation was finding the security T10 torx bit. I looked on the Internet, went to Lowe’s and Home Depot with no luck. I finally found it at Harbor freight. I was lucky because I first noticed the situation when I saw my lock had come loose at the end of a ride . Thankfully I didn’t lose my bag and have it go bouncing down the side of the road. Moral of the story, go to Harbor Freight and find a T10 security torc bit and fix the little screws on your saddlebags & top case. All of mine were loose.

You can get a tiny set from autozone for a few dollars. Thatís where I got mine. I loctited the lock screws on this bike the day after I received it. Otherwise, itís not if theyíll come loose, but when.

No commercials. No dictators.

blue, this has been archived wisdom for many years. It is supposed to be part of dealer prep.

Or, in a fit of rage, you can simply break the security post out with a little screwdriver and use a regular Torx bit . Don't forget to do trunk lock too.

That reminds me . . .



I have no idea why MamaYama speced a security Torx bolt there. If the sidecase is locked, no one else should have access. If it is unlocked, someone can just take the whole freakin' case.

John, that's exactly what I was thinking. The security of the lock should suffice. I actually found my way to this thread because I lost the hasp off the right side case lock, and now I'm stuck looking for a replacement and screws without buying the entire lock system.

I may have something for you. I bought a Yamaha touring trunk from Weljo2014 a few years back and I replaced it's lock assy with the key matched one that came with my cycle. Give me a few days to look for it, I save everything...


...but where?

LOL! I'm the same way. I'll keep an eye on the forum, thanks.

I have not come across that spare lock cylinder yet, but I am sure I still have it.
The part you are looking for is part of that cylinder I am looking for, correct?
