Top box lock key

Postby t-bar12 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 5:54 pm



I need to find a key for the locks for a top box I recently purchased for my 1982 GL1100. I don't know what top box model the locks originally were attached to, but I suspect an Interstate. The locks each have 4 numbers on them - 0316. Does anyone know how I can get a key to make these locks work? (My Goldwing keys go into the locks, but will not turn.) Thanks! Tb

I assume you tried some WD-40 on them? When I got my wing, the locks that would lock the Top Box on to the chrome frame support would not turn for me. Used WD-40 and they opened up.

GW locks/key are matched at factory, one key opens-unlocks everything. if you just bought a top box off another GW, your best bet would be have a locksmith rekey the locks for your key or make you a key for those locks.
