Kawasaki One Key System

I'm going to buy a Givi V47 top case very soon. I've already bought the hardware from Cycle Gear and in the next few days will buy the top case. I saw a video on YouTube where a guy bought the One Key System and installed it on his Givi V47 top case. Has anyone done this? If so, any information will be appreciated. I just bought the One Key Lock from my local Kawasaki dealer, so I'm looking for as much information on matching it to my key and installing it as possible.

I also went the route you're going...I bought a Givi 47L topcase but then went with the Kawasaki hard bags. Let me tell you, getting those locks "keyed" was a major feat!!! Luckily, I live in a small town with a locksmith. She's an older lady and her and I sat there shooting the breeze while she was determined to get the locks to fit the key correctly. Basically, it's trial and error until you find the right combination of pins. We had a great chat though!

As for keying the Givi...I'm not sure how to pop that lock out without damaging the plastic. I'm sure there's a way but I decided to just get one of those key chains where one side is the ignition/saddle bags key and the other is the Givi key. It's a releasable keychain where you push on it and it separates. (You can find them at Walmart for $1.00 or so.) This way I can warm the bike up while getting into the top case at the same time if I need to.

Good luck if you can make the one key work. Post pics/video on how ya did it!

I've had the one-lock system installed in the Kawasaki box (which is really a Givi V47). Had to get the pins set up by a locksmith, as Devilsfan says, but mine went without a hitch at a local specialist. Once you have the cylinder set up for your key, you just push it into the topcase until it clicks and that's it.

Note, not every key-dupe point in a supermarket will be staffed by someone who knows how to do it, you'll probably need to look for an actual locksmith.

I can't imagine wanting the luggage key to be the ignition key.
This would be terribly stupid, assuming you have the bike's spare in your luggage.

I bought the OEM top box from Partzilla and bought the one key system and installed it myself. Itís pretty easy to do following the directions that are included. The OEM Box comes with no lock installed, I donít know if itís as easy to remove the stock Givi lock from the non-OEM case to replace it with the one key system.

stand up tall, pretend youíre strong, in the hope that you can be

I replaced my lock on my Givi E-55 Topcase. It was pretty simple. Just watch out for a ball bearing dropping out of nowhere..https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...placement.html

Good write-up...with pics, too!

So, now that we know the Givi lock can be replaced would it be safe to assume a Kawasai lock will fit where the Givi lock once was? I ask because the Givi key is totally different than the Kawasaki ignition, in that the Givi is a shorter, more squared-type key as the Kawasaki ignition key is long and thin.

So here is an update on the Givi V47 and the one key system. I bought the lock from Kawasaki and successfully keyed it to my key. But, when I took the Givi lock out and went to install the Kawasaki lock, it didn't fit. The Givi lock is longer than the Kawasaki lock, so I opted to just have a separate key for my Givi case and returned the Kawasaki lock. It would have been nice to have everything on one key, but using an extra key hasn't been a problem. I love the case, tons of room and the backrest is very comfortable for my girlfriend.
