Matching Givi lock to Ducati key

I just completed matching my Givi top box lock to my Ducati Hyperstrada key so I thought I'd share in case anyone is interested. I have the Givi V46, but it's probably going to be very similar to other models.

First of all, the pannier and top box lock cylinders seem to be identical to seat catch lock cylinders. I happened to have an extra one (i think from a 748) which I used for extra pins since the Ducati cylinders only come with 4 and the Givi cylinder uses 9. I was still 1 short, but it was close enough.

For those of you who don't have an extra cylinder and want to put on a Ducati top box. Just find an old seat latch set from eBay. It'll probably cost you less money.

1) Pull the Givi lock cylinder off the case. Mine came off by removing 2 screws from the inside of the case then taking the nut off the end. NOTE: There was a spring and metal ball bearing on mine that hold the key in the open and locked positions. Be careful that they don't fly out. If you lose the ball bearing and can't find it, a regular or airsoft bb will work.

2) Pull the pins pull by using long nose pliers and pulling straight out. NOTE: The pins are spring loaded so don't lose the springs in the process. The Ducati cylinder all pull out in the same direction. The Givi had 5 facing one way then 4 facing the opposite way. The Givi also had a thicker guide pin at the end closest to the key insertion point which has to come out.

3) Mix & match the pins from the Ducati cylinder into the Givi cylinder so they fit your key. You know the pin is the right one if it is flush to the cylinder when the key is inserted. Start with one side, tape it up, then do the other side. Once you're close to everything being flush, try it out on the Givi lock. You don't have to reassemble everything to try it out. Just slide the cylinder in and see if it will turn. If you can't find a combination that works 100%, you can round out or file away the protruding pins. If it protrudes on the same side as the spring, you can round it out. If it protrudes on the opposite side, you will have to file it down.

4) That's it. Reassemble everything and you're done.

Great thanks. Have a V46 and keying to the bike would be real convenient. Cheers.

Sadly I got excited a bit too early. Turns out that the lock core for my Kappa KGR46 is different than the Givi one. Which is stupid, because Kappa is owned by Givi. The little tumbler "pins" fit in either core, but the Ducati key does not fit into the Kappa core. Unlike yours, the "guide pin" is built into the core, so no dice. My local locksmith also confirmed that I was SOL.

I'll post a couple photos of the lock core when I get around to messing with it again.

The guides are just two little metal nubs. I wonder if you can file or dremel them off.

Believe me, I tried that. I actually ended up punching them out with a screwdriver (the two metal pin-looking pieces). Which, didn't harm the function with the original key, but still wouldn't accommodate the new one. The profile was quite a bit different between them.

That is strange. Especially if the tumbler pins fit.

Well, the locks are supposed to be interchangeable with Givi so maybe you can find a similar lock that will work.

Post or send pics of the lock and your key when you can.

Do you have a photo of your trunk? From my research, the v46 has the same style core as mine..

I can upload one tonight. Do our cores look the same? I can take measurements.
