:mad:
Bought a 12 ST1200 a few months ago. PO had broken key off in top pannier, he then for some reason dismantled the entire mechanism. So i bought all new locked for the panniers, swapped out the side case locks and then got to the top case. I've spent at least 5hrs on it over the course of 3 nights. Still can't get it to operate correct or without feeling like the key is going to snap off. I'm certain I'm not putting something together just right. I've scoured the inter web to only come up empty handed for a diagram. Any one have some info?

Just to reiterate, NOT looking for how to replace the lock cylinder, I need to know how to assemble the entire latch mechanism. At this point I have a $400 useless box.

Not a problem I have experienced, but I gather the top box mechanism is assembled slightly differently to the side cases: -

http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/index.php?topic=9970.0

The usual scenario is that the dealer codes the keys & fits a lock set, but forgets to apply threadlock to the retaining screws. These come loose & the lock cylinder jumps out & is lost. The only other thought I have is the lock cylinder itself - is it not quite correctly matched to the key. Somewhere on the Forum I recall mention of being able to adjust/match lock to key. I shall have to search around to see if I can find the thread.

Good luck ..................... KEN

Yes I agree this very well could be the issue ::026::

In my opinion the lock system on the stock Yamaha bags is crap and should have been redesigned years ago. Other than the lousy lock system I am happy with the Yamaha luggage setup, you shouldn’t need to use a key every time you want to open or close something.

The lock mechanism is difficult to operate without be even closing the lid yet. I have apparently put some piece of the puzzle together wrong.

again this is NOT a lock tumbler issue. I bought 3 matching brand new tumblers keyed alike, the tumbler and key work perfect by themselves. This is a top case latch mechanism issue. There is a linkage that goes from cam behind the latch down to the spring loaded slide that holds the case to the bike. Somewhere in this assembly I have it wrong.

Here is another thread that may help - sadly no pics ..................... http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/index.php?topic=1592.30

There is talk not only of holding down the lid, but also pressing in the rack locking handle, presumably taking the strain off the internal mechanism. Someone also mentions the rack mechanism getting out of sync, jumping teeth? but how this was fixed isn't clear to me. Maybe you could PM the contributors who may have missed your post.

Good luck sorting the problem ................ KEN

I feel your pain. I got a slightly used top box with my bike and it had a janky key with it. Dealer threw in a few extra lock cylinders so I set about changing it so the ignition key would work on the top box. I spent a lot of time monkeying around with that silly mechanism. Fuuuuudge it sucked. I wish I could give specifics, but basically I dicked around with it until everything lined up and felt right. Good Luck!

You can upload a PDF directly to a post here via the Attach option below the window on the full reply page. Just take a look at the file size restrictions before trying to add it.
