After speaking to the locksmiths that tauzero recommended, it seems that my lock barrel is knackered. The tumblers that remain are damaged beyond repair so I need a new barrel. Do I have to buy the set of 3 from Triumph or can I get them singularly from anywhere else?

All 3 barrels arrived just now. Even better, my key is barely different to the ones that came with the barrels. I shall file the tumblers down that are too high, I've got 2 on the rear that are less than 1mm and 1 on the front which is just under 2mm.

Once done, how do I locate the barrel? I've looked inside the opening and it seems the barrel will fit in 2 of the guides.

:460: .... excellent find, backs up previous written descriptions here. Pity it appears to only work on the Adventure luggage. With my Expedition luggage it isn't possible to remove the key from any of the locks in the unlocked position, only in the locked position.

this worked for me

Ok, I got the key out in the unlocked position. For others who have the same problem, here is how to do it. From the open position, go to lock the top box while pulling the key outwards, it should come out just before hitting the dead upright position. Now just insert the key slightly inside the barrel and turn to the unlocked position et voila.

My dealer said it is possible.  They gave me two Triumph lock barrels to convert my GIVI Outback Trekkers to the Triumph key when I purchased the bike.  I havn't had time to try it yet and will post my results soonest.

Just a quick note to thank the people who tried the 2mm Allen key, succeeded and posted on here. I had a key barrel stuck in a top box that I needed to get out, followed the tips, tried a number of times with filing bits off and hey presto, go it out.
Thanks a lot.

Another note of thanks to all. A bit of grinding and 2 allen keys later. Done and dusted.  :028:  :031:

I appreciate this topic has been posted to sporadically and a bit older now, but I have just done the lock removal on a pair of panniers following the advice on here. I also want to give a special mention to "Philopastry" who was generous enough to send me detailed photo's to assist with the job. Thank you Phil. the only thing I can add to the previous details posted, is that after making several keys and a bit of hair tearing ... the first lock came out. The second one took 20 seconds once I could see what I was doing. So do persevere with it.

One thing I noticed when the second lock came out, was that my Allen key was half a mill under length at the business end. I should have been moving my Allen key towards the larger end of the lock cover. (The plate on the lock has slightly different amounts of metal showing each side, and in my case the pointy end of the key needs to be moved towards the larger end, if you see what I mean.)

Posted just in case it helps someone.

Guyver,

I have rekeyed my lock barrels, it is actually very easy especially if you have an extra lock barrel to canabalize.

See this  thread:
