Changing locks in explorer paniers.
« on: February 02, 2020, 04:12:28 PM »
2all,
Has somebody already change/replaced the locks of the Triumph explorer paniers?
My buddy just bought a 2012 explorer and scored 2 side paniers on eBay. But he would like to use only 1 key, instead of different ones. But opening the case inside to get to the lock part is not easy.
Hopefully one of you have the Answer to this one

Captain trips, you’re right, I should have done that and I could try to give all kinds of excuses But I wont.

We found something simmular on YouTube, so also thanks for that tip.

Whilst I have used the method in the link, if you have the keys you can unscrew the the inside lock cover and remove the barrel easy from the inside (don't lose the pins and springs!!!)

Don't use the ignition key as your pannier key! If the bag lock siezes and your key breaks in the cylinder you are screwed. Experience. :232:

yes, easy to change out. But I will say, i scored some 2018 cases, i had barrels for 2017, 2017 would not work, had to order 2017 locking mechanism and swap with 2018 lock mechanism. Very easy once you figure it out,,,,,

Hi Wiliam, have you still got the 2017 barrels? I think i am doing the opposite to you, i have 2018 panniers (which i have my keyed barrels in) but i presume I have a 2017 top box, as when i tried swapping the barrel it was a slightly smaller diameter, the 2018 barrel wouldn't fit. I just wondered if you have the 2017 version still, are the tumblers changeable (like the 2018 where they spring out if you aren't careful)? If you have a picture of the 2017 barrel, i'd like to see it.
Thank you.

the locks are very similar but standard key shaped key is off-set and the new flat sided key is in the middle of the lock and they are not compatible.
