1998 Side luggage
« on: September 12, 2010, 09:25:00 pm »
Hi all, I'm a new Concours owner and was wondering if anyone knew where it may be possible to get replacement hard saddle bags.  Actually, its just the locks that need replacing.  Is it possible to find replacements?      Will saddle bags from different model years fit?  Or perhaps a different luggage brand that will work?  Thanks.

IIRC Bags from any year 86-06 will fit. I do not think you can get the locks separately. Keep in mind there are only two lock/key types.  Key A and Key B. It is marked on the key and ont he underside of the lock (I think).

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

As Steve said, and he's correct about the A or B being under the lock mechanism when you open the lock.  Which locks are you looking for? For the case opening or the mount to the antler? Sometimes a few of us have extras laying around, or ebay, and they are listed as seperate items on the parts diagram. Could get new from Murphs, Ron Ayers or the like.

Stupid Hurts! Wearing protective gear is much more comfortable.

It's the mount to the antler, and the key/lock is type "A".  Anybody have any extra laying around they may be willing to sell me?  Thanks.

Hi,   Just curious what is wrong with the locks.  Where they vandalized? What exactly is wrong with them that is making you want to replace them.  Maybe I can help.  Try Craigslist as well as ebay look at completed listings to see what people are paying for them and go from there.  But get back to me...

The lock wasnt vandalized, except maybe by me.  I was trying to loosen it up bit... was sticking.  There are two bars that are attached to a pin inside the lock that move back and forth when you open or close the latch. One of the bars snapped away from the pin. Looks like the end of the pin snapped off.

I had than happen to one of mine.  It is possible to replace the broken rivet/pin    If you bring it up to my wrench session I'll fix it for you :)
