Trunk lid locking pin needed

Apparently, there are NO parts for this from the dealer....none! Not even the darn C clips.

I am most likely going to get the custom handle from Mike when they are made available, but I still need a pin for the lid, that the latch attaches to.

Anyone have a spare, or know where to get one?

I checked all the used bike sources from this forum, nothing so far.

Looks like rope and velcro for the rest of this season.

Having stopped at the dealer today to check the 09, I was surprised how much friction there was with the latch mechanism on that trunk. No wonder the damn handles are breaking.

I agree. I took my latch assembly apart and filed the underside of the latch arms where they engage the pins. I removed just enough metal to eliminate the shear marks and then I used fine grit sandpaper to remove the file marks. My trunk now closes with much less effort and less of the "grating" feeling when operating the latch.

Too soon to know if it will prevent the broken latch syndrome as I have only 9,000 miles on the LT.

Re: Trunk lid locking pin needed

Last part #'s I show (a couple of years old)

Pin: 46 54 2 316 317 Cost $1.65
C-Clip: 07 11 9 932 815 Cost $.10

As previously stated these are K1100LT numbers that will fit the K1200LT.

Please update if the part #'s are wrong. I'm sure the price has increased.

Re: Trunk lid locking pin needed

I've forwarded the part numbers to the dealer, waiting to hear. Seems like is will be some time before the solid aluminum handle is available, either way. Hope the rope holds till then!
