missing lock cylinders

About 10 days ago I took delivery of my 2014 V Storm The hard cases were not in and were drop shipped. When they arrived there were no cylinder locks - The mounting instructions said they were not part of the shipment. Where do I get cylinder locks for the hard cases. I called the dealer and he did not know.

So I need a lock assembly ( tumbler, housing and the plastics piece that bolts onto the end) for my soft italia trunk and side cases. Does anyone have a contact or a part number so I can order some. The dealer closest to me can't find any info on them

A customer of mine is a locksmith. He was able to key the top case to the side cases and cut a new key as well. The blank he used is a Suzuki automotive key. With a minimal amount of file work to the grooves on the key it works as good or better than the factory key. So for any of you having trouble finding Suzuki original case keys, maybe ask your locksmith to try the auto key. It should work.

The guy from Twisted Throttle had no experience with the OEM boxes on the glee so he couldn't answer my question.

A few weeks ago I purchased the SW Motech locks that fit the hard cases for my 2012 650 Adventure model. The locks WORK GREAT!!! The keys that come with the locks are 2 sided, don't feel flimsy and have no issues working. The locks/keys are so much better then the locks/keys Suzuki provides. Here's the link:

SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Lock set for 3 TraX EVO ALU-BOX cases - TwistedThrottle.com

By far the best $26 I spent. You can also get 1, 2 or 3 sets of locks.

Ditto... I also replaced my `12 650 adventure locks with the SW-Motech locks and they are much butter than the OEM locks. As mentioned the keys were double-sided (even though the keys shown in the link are single-sided).

Not sure about 2012 and forward but for 2011 and older my locksmith used ILCO X86 FC7 blanks. It seems like this is about your locks falling out however!

Another thing about the locks - they don't really provide any security at all! The bags are mounted on arms that can be removed quickly and without any special tool - a coin could pull off the part of the rack the box is mounted to. Further, the locks themselves only have pins on one side - you can open ANY factory vstrom baggage lock using a small piece of metal because all you have to do is push down all the pins and it opens.

I found out how to pick the locks on mine because I had to deal with the fact that both of my g*damn keys broke and nobody could make a copy (not that it matters) because the locks were so hard to move when I first got the bike. Lubing the crap out of it worked wonders but I didn't figure that out until I broke the first key and fatigued the second.

At this point, I've taken off all my locks, removed the lock pins, and reinstalled the cylinders so I can make sure the boxes are secured to the bars and have the lids tight, and just to make others think they're locked. In reality, I can use my thumb to twist the cylinder open and 'unlock' my boxes.

As for the boxes themselves, I was assured they're waterproof - I talked with the dealer and asked about the waterproofness when I was first considering what bike to buy, the quality of the luggage was important to the decision on the purchase. Anyway, turns out they're not really that waterproof. I lost a laptop because of this in one box - macbook air down the drain, and water damage is not covered under warranty. I could have bought a good set of luggage for the price of that thing!
