    "Key" question about a top case

    I have a question about my top case.

    I sold my R1200RT.....

    I am buying another one in about a year.

    I still have my top case off the bike.

    When I purchase a new R1200RT do I need to order a new lock for the top case at the same time so that it will match my bikes ignition key? Or.....?

    Will my local BMW shop do the key match?

    Thanks!!!

    Your local BMW dealer can do it.

    Requires a new lock cylinder.

    Thank you very much.

    When the time comes in 8 months I will bring that to their attention.

    Dennis - Hang onto a key that fits your present case. When you get the new bike it's easy to re-key your case to the new key, and you won't need a new lock cylinder. Your dealer can do it for you or you can do it yourself - but you must start with the key that now fits the cylinder.
