Key for saddle bags
« on: January 16, 2020, 01:35:34 pm »
I seen where a guy had keys for bags made and he attached chrome knobs to them and left them in saddle bag locks and anyone here tried that I did that years ago to the gas lid on my Goldwing.

I didn't use chrome knobs,  I used black caps off of quart bottles of oil. They match the tops of the bags on my 08 almost perfectly.   :great:

Expanding on the chrome knobs...
That would be kind of neat if the knobs had fake key holes, now wouldn't it?  ;D :great:

I did it... used chromed knobs I got from radio shack online.  Bought a CV ok please of blank keys from ebay, and had the cut using the spare key from the primary fob.  Had to then cut them down to fit the knovs and epoxyed them in place...

I dont leave them in place unless I'm going into the cases frequently.  I use one of the for the gas tank, as opposed to taking out the fob spare or the ignition key....

Honda Goldwing radio knobs and JB Weld epoxy-  it works great, covers the tumbler assembly, and is very discreet.

I used the one Tundra used, SILCA KW 14. I picked them up at Carl Jarl locksmith.  I paid around $7 for two keys.

I also installed knobs on mine. Bough them on Ebay.
I went to a lock shop and asked them to make me keys.
  I think most shops have the blanks you need.
NOTE: I think I used the longer blank that AmphibSailor posted as it gave me material to fit into the knob.
          If you add the knobs, trim them to the shortest length possible. {so that the bottom of the knob, fit's down close to the surface of the bag}..

Ride safe, Ted
