Dry graphite spray also works.. just spray a little on the key, then insert the key a few times into the tumbler. Then wipe off excess from key.

As for the Panniers/Tail bag, same thing works for the tumblers. But generally those locks need a little grease on the mechanism within the lock.

I use teflon lube in locks. It dries to a teflon powder so it's not going to gunk up anything. Sold at quality locksmiths near you. Trflow I think is the name. oops - yes it's graphite as noted in the prior post. It works.

Thanks to Zibbit U2 for his specific instructions. I easily followed them and PRESTO, the key came out of the lock just as it always had before this one problem experience. Thanks again to Zibbit U2 and everyone else who responded to the post.

just spray some lube on your key and insert it into anywhere that it can go into. My saddle bag latches got stuck when I picked up the bike from the dealer. I got home sprayed them with some WD 40 and we're good. Same goes for the filler cap, pannier locks and ignition. All you need is a dab nothing more.
