Question Yamaha top box

Does anyone have any suggestion for repairing the latch mechanism on the Yamaha branded top box?

If it is Shad one you may be able to order replacement from them?

Thank you for the response. My top box is the Yamaha branded version, and the latching mechanism that secures the box to the tail section of the bike does not work very well. I can't figure out how to access the internal latching mechanicals!

You'll not likely be able to access it, wasn't designed to be taken apart... may have skipped a gear? Spray lube in there and work it around if it's just a stiff mechanism. Not sure how you'd fix a skipped tooth (same goes for side bags).

I agree: it certainly doesn't appear to be built to be disassembled! Not sure if it's a skipped tooth, but the motion of the handle for opening the box BARELY moves the mechanicals that I can see.

You have to cut through the hard plastic to access the mechanism. So either lubing might fix it or it is done something broke inside...usually happens if you try to overload and close and lock the box !

No ****. I had no idea Givi made the OEM boxes.

I bought this bike less then two weeks ago, so i don't know much of it's history. And the guy I bought it from didn't seem to know much about it, but I suspect that overloading the box is what damaged the mechanicals. I'll try shooting some lube in and around the mechanicals to see if it helps, but I'm not optimistic. Then I'll be looking for someone who's got some experience cutting these boxes and repairing them. I'm also not optimistic that replacement mechanicals are even available!
