I believe the locking mechanism is reversed from one to the other making them not interchangeable.

If you're talking about the lock cylinders, I'd be highly surprised if they were, although I could be wrong. Looking at the keys for each I have in my pocket, they appear somewhat dissimilar.

I also assume he is referring to the lock cylinder. The plastic latch thingy looks similar, so I think it is possible a Givi (complete lock) might swap. If you are speaking of the lock cylinder itself (the tumbler), probably not.

Maybe I should have waiting to drink my morning coffee before surfing this forum
