Does anyone know how to change out the locks on the OEM saddlebags? I have a new saddlebag but it comes with a rubber plug where the lock should be. I want to take the lock (tumbler) off the old saddlebag and put it on the new one.

Thanks!

Sorry I can't help as I've never done that but maybe it would be easier to just unbolt the whole mechanism from your old one.....if you have it available

You will have to disassemble to get the cylinder out. Just swap the whole lock assembly. It is not that hard.

Was really hoping to avoid that since the original units are held in by screws that appeared to be glued or loc-tited. I stripped the heads on the old unit and had to use a Dremel to cut them out.
