Just bought an 08 XB12XT and the previous owner lost his key to the panniers and tour pack.

Iíd like to use them. But currently they are closed and locked. I CAN remove them from the rack, but I canít lock them in place.

1. What do you guys recommend?
Pick the locks and have them rekeyed?
New lock sets all around?

2. What does the factory key for the bags look like?


3. Should it be the same key as the ignition or did they have separate key sizes from the ignition and the fuel cap?

The key for the bags is a lot smaller but still symmetrical like the ignition, meaning it works right side up or upside down. If you can remove the bags without the key then take them off and leave them off. The latches that hold them on are locked with the same key. If they open without a key then they could also open by themselves while you are merrily cruising down the highway, unless you have something non-stock rigged up.

If you can take the bags off then you could just bring the whole thing to a locksmith, the key blanks should be readily available and easy to make. One last thought, did you get any paperwork with the bike? There is a three digit code on the key, maybe itís listed somewhere in there to save you some trouble. At any rate, I think the locksmith option might be the easiest and cheapest. Good luck.

Do you see a 3 digit number on the locks?

They should all be keyed the same.
Once you know the number:

Get a blank key and cut it.

Remove the lock and take it to a locksmith. They'll be able to cut a key to match.

My key fell off my ring while riding. I only had the top bag on so I took the side bag to a local lock smith $35. Later I have 4 new keys to the luggage and 3 new ignition.

One of the easiest locks to pick. The caveat being; It is easier to just zip tie a spare luggage key to a hidden spot up in the bike and spray paint it mat black than it is to carry a pick set with you. This video will show you how easy.

You are correct and the hidden key is the better solution. Will take less time to zip key onto bike than learn the new skill
Maybe even less than to watch video
Thanks

Nothing wrong with learning skills. Locks are easy to defeat. I think of them like puzzles.

Ordered Hepco and Becker blanks from easykeys.com. Thereís no documentation (Iím the third owner so... no chance of knowing which key number it is)
I have a local locksmith who will hand cut me a key from the removed cylinder.

Iíll post the part number when they get here but I got that part number in a BadWeb search so... there ya has it.
