Single locking barrel

After a single locking barrel for my topbox. Needs to be untouched so I can get it set to my keys.

Are you after a pre keyed lock? I had to buy a set of 3 and I think I still have 1 spare, however it is already keyed to a lock??

Hi Dan, I've just ordered 3 from Fowler's. I'll get the 1 made to work and keep the others as spares incase anyone else is stuck.
Thanks for the offer though mate  :028:

Ive just purchased a 2015 XRX and only has 2 barrels for luggage - who do you get to adjust the spare ones your buying?

You can actually do it your self if you don't mind disassembling the lock and reordering the bits inside it.

I can put bodies back together - but not so good with fiddly mechanical bits. Less patience if it doesnt have a heartbeat. Im good at demolishing stuff though 🤦🏻‍♂️

This is what Triumph do.
Put your key into the lock, then using a needle file, smooth down the pins that are now sticking up. They don't have to be pretty, just flush with the locking barrel.
That's all Triumph do and charge an hour's labour.
No messing about removing bits that you could lose.

I'll try and quote properly this time. It's dead easy. Needle files are cheap enough and the pins are soft so won't take much filing down. Take your time and it should be done in less than 5 minutes 👍
