Re: Replacing side saddlebag lock/latch assy.
I'm guessing you are referring to the latch and grab handle on the side case?
It comes off by unscrewing the 8 phillips head screws on the inside of the case. [see service manual page 46.33]
If you're replacing the outer half of the side case, you will need to drill out pop rivets in the hinge that holds the two halves of the case together.
Not sure if there are pop rivets in the handle/latch assembly itself or why you'd take it apart.
The lock cylinder comes out of the side case handle latch assembly by pushing a wire into the little hole in the body of the lock assembly to release the retaining pin. [see service manual page 51.6 and 51.7]
Sorry, I can't easily make prints of these service manual pages...
