Hello hive mind

 

i need your help, some one broke into my givi Honda top box & I managed to get a replacement lock barrel & the local locksmith matched the barrel with my key! Amazing! 
 

now some little bugger tried to nick my bike & has smash the ignition, I’ve got it replaced with a new key & Honda also replaced the front trunk. but for the life of me I can’t remember where I got the replacement barrel for my top box & my local Honda dealer said they don’t do it

 

fors any one know where I might get one? Having two similar keys is doing my head in! 
 

TIA!

You can do it yourself, take the top box lock to pieces and rebuild it (re order the leaves inside) to fit your ignition key. There aren’t as many variations as you’d think.😁

Out of the lock. You can usually shuffle them around to make them work with your key. 
Sorry I was so slow to respond @China, i hadn’t realised there was a reply.

When I moved schools after the 11+ a lot of my new friends lived on what was then a new and rather up market housing estate. One day two of them discovered that their house keys were identical. This prompted a comparison with others from the same estate and we found there were others with the same key. One lad decided to knock on a few doors and discovered that his key fitted every 5th house or so.

 

It seems builders bulk buy locks and some builders only bought a limited number of different locks.

I think he's still got a bit of learning to get to 'expert' level. :lol:

 

But worth checking out LPL for some tips ... ;)
