    I found this great description on how to remove and re-key the locks used in the panniers.  I can take no credit for the content, I just stumbled across it as I was looking for a "How To".

    https://advrider.com/f/threads/how-to-rekey-triumph-tiger-800-lock-cylinders.1396176/

    some additional thoughts mentioned where I found the above link,

    Thank you so much for sharing the procedure that will help me to re-key Painer locks. It will save my money from hiring locksmith in birmingham for that issue.

    Here are some additional photos I took when rekeying mine.  Once you have the locks out you have to disassemble the one you want to rekey and probably one you will canabalize for the proper wafers.

    First notice that the wafers will stick up out of the barrel when either no key is in the lock or an improper key is in the lock.



    When the proper key is in the lock all of the wafers will retract to flush with the barrel.



    When disassembling the lock carefully pry up the cap by first prying under each crimp then carefully pulling the cap up with a rocking motion using a pliers.  Have a clear work area and move slowly so you do not scatter the small internal parts by jerking the cap off.  You will never find those small springs!!!





    Carefully remove the springs and the bar and place in a small cup so you will not lose them.  Then turn the barrel over and tap on your bench a couple times to move the pin out of position so you can grab it and remove it.  However when you do, keep your hand over the barrel so all of the wafers don't fall out and scatter.



    You will only be working with the 6 wafers closest to the key slot.  The last one keeps the lock in the pannier and will not retract with the key.  You will notice the different wafers once you remove them.



    Notice the difference in the length of the protrusions on the bottom right of the wafers in the picture.  These control where the wafer will be when the key is inserted.  The procedure I used was to insert a wafer in spot 1 (closest to the key slot), insert the pin to hold it, then insert the key and see if the wafer retracted until flush.  If it did not, try another wafer in the spot and repeat the procedure.  Once you got the wafer to retract to flush, move on to the next one until you are complete.  As I said, I had to canabalize another lock to get a set of 6 wafers that would work.  I could not find anywhere to buy the wafers themselves.  You will notice the relationship between the length of the protrusion and the cut in the key to see how far the key will pull the wafer down.

    When they all retract properly, insert the pin, the bar and the springs, then carefully put the cap back on and squeeze the crimps back into place.

    Then reinsert the lock in the pannier.  Remember the 6 wafers must all retract to flush, not close, but flush.

    Good luck! and Ride Safe.

    Would this allow me to use the ignition key on the panniers? Or are people doing this because they lost the keys to the panniers?

    I did it to key the panniers to my ignition key.

    I needed a spare lock barrel to canabalize for the wafers I needed.  If you are lucky you can just rearrange the ones you have in the barrel to be rekeyed.  I sent my extra parts to another guy on Tiger facebook page you may want to ask around either here or on the  Explorer forum if you cannot make it work with the available wafers.  You do realize that your bike probably came with extra lock barrels keyed to your ignition.  They will be either in the material you got from the dealer/seller or buried under the seat somewhere, ie under the tool kit or wire looms etc.

    I have heard that some people that have only had one that would not retract have ground that one down.  I do not know about that I was reluctant to try it. 

    You can always check with your local Triumph dealer in case a mechanic has a few laying around.  The last alternative is order a set of locks to canabalize one. It is Triumph T2500692 and cost just under $50.  It is a pact of three lock barrels and keys.

    Good Luck and Ride Safe

    Thanks, I am definitely going to look into this because it would be nice to have one key for everything. The PO of the bike definitely didn't give me any lock parts but I will double check next time I have the seat off the bike. There was a little tool kit under the seat.
