Hi

I was wondering if the Ducati Luggage Locks provided me with the MTS1200 for the panniers will fit in a GIVI V46 or any other top case.

Basically, I will like to don't have the extra givi key to open my case, but use the single Ducati FOB key.

The diameter looks the same, but the Ducati looks a little longer, in that case, I could fabricate a bracket

I purchase the V47 monokey hoping the Ducati lock would fit, they are different sizes, not even close. It looks like the Monokey system from Givi is not compatible with the Ducati locks for 2015-2017 MTS's.
Was wondering if the lock will fit well but only longer, in that case, I could build a bracket to hold the top part.

They'll fit the 2010-2014 cases. In fact, I need some lock cylinders long enough for my side cased on my 2012 Pikes Peak. If you don't want your Ducati lock cylinders, I'll take 'em.

I found this in the Hyperstrada forum may help
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.
