Re: k1200lt 04 top luggage lock broken

Do you have central locking? It is associated with the alarm and if it is electronically locked the key will open it but you have to turn it only 45 degrees not 90. Otherwise you can put a drift on the lock cylinder and hammer away until it gives then pull up on the latch.

The cylinder lock is ok its the latch that has broken at the top on both sides the latch it lifts ok but does not open the case.

With the latch open, you may be able to reach up and grab the broken pieces with with some pliers and pull down on them to open the latches. Not sure if the fix it after it breaks latch is still being sold or available but here is the link. MFG solution is to replace the entire top case to get the latch and it is still pot metal. I replaced my broken latch with this and it is far superior and less than a top case.

I bought one of the last few last year but the web site is still up so there may still be some left.
