Pannier lock fault
« on: July 22, 2013, 10:55:49 am »
Got an annoying little fault that has developed on my bike.


One the right hand pannier.


The pannier lock has three positions : -


1/ Locked

2/ Unlocked

3/ To remove pannier from bike.


In 'everyday' use. we have the lock in position 2, so we can click the lid shut when riding, but can still easily open it without a key when we stop.


However the flat steel 'locking plate' that engages into the handle when the key is turned to 'lock', doesn't stay in position when set to 'unlocked', and so you can't open the lid without using a key!


The other pannier is still fine though.

Anyone else had this develop??

That is unusual. I use mine all the time and have never had that happen. Still, it is under warranty so I would get the dealership to change it.

Yeah, take it back!

Have used all 3 pannier
/ top box locks repeatedly and never had any problem like that!

I keep mine as you do, so I can get access without the key. No problem. Get it fixed for free.

Just when you think we are getting thru windscreens, fork seals, and gas tanks. A new pandemic.

Took the pannier in to the dealer's today.

Showed him the problem.

He said if they can't fix it they will have to replace the whole pannier as the lock barrel can't be removed. :187:

He also said that it would therefore mean the new pannier would have a different key to the other pannier/topbox/ignition.

I looked at him and said "I don't think so!" ............................. he just said "oh".

Will keep you all posted!!
