re-keying cases

My recently bought 1994 R1100RS came without a key for one of the cases. My local locksmith says he can make both cases work with the ignition key. Is there a way to get the cylinders removed without drilling out the rivets that hold the cases together out? And if you do drill them out, is it simply a matter of pop-riveting it back together or is there more to it?

Is there an on-line shop manual available like for the LT?

Thanks!

Wolfgang

and

http://members.cox.net/r1100rs/bmw/rekey.html

Which re both similar to how I did my K75 - put key in and find way to depress holder then extract barrel. I may have a couple of spare barrels if you need them let me know

Re: re-keying cases

Thanks Graham!

That got me further down the road...but, any ideas how to to get the lockcylinder out if you do not have the right key? I got the one on the side that I have a key for out in a few minutes. The other side is the problem...

UPDATE:

Went to the local locksmith, he picked and removed the other cylinder and moved the sliders around in both cylinders to make both case locks work with the ignition key. He also made me two spare keys.
Total cost: USD $ 28.50 Who says BMW's are expensive to own... ?

I could not have done it without your initial help as to how to get the cylinder out!! THANKS!
