49 liter top case rekey

Ok... bought a used 49 liter BMW top case that came with a key. I want to pull the cylinder out to rekey it to the ignition. I can't seem to find the hole to release the lock. Anyone do this themselves?
I used this website: http://www.ebbo.org/re_keying.php


Is the pin hole on the top, sides or bottom (looking down through the access hole)

Thanks

Steve

Great picture !
Why do you use a different front tire ?
I keep looking at the PR3s sitting there,and the worn Metzlers that are on the bike.....

New RT





Another inmate had this posted over in the main section. Should be one hell of a machine. Obviously not a GT.

Nice! I wonder how fast BMW Motorrad will come in and take that vid down. Watch it quick, everyone!

New/interesting stuff I noticed:

- Handlebars look to be one piece of machined metal
- Same side bags as the GT/L
- Similar exhaust to the GT/L (but, only one can, of course)
- Similar styling bits as the GT/L (BMW logo and "chrome" piece on fairing
- Similar dash to the GT/L (completely redesigned from current RT dash w/ some sort of GPS integration - assuming the wheel will now interact with the GPS as well, like on the WC GS)
- BC mode button now replaced with a "light" button? Maybe for additional lighting? Assuming the wheel now will control BC functions
- Headlights similar to the GT/L (we all knew this from the initial, leaked spy shots)
- Grips look like the GS/A grips
- Looks like two glove boxes now (at least there's two keyholes, one on either side of the tank)
- Looks like the tank rail is gone
- Cool looking new cylinder guards, both metal and some plastic bits

What else?

Interesting to see it's a GT, and that so much K16 design language made it in there. The stance of the fairing, while incorporating the K16 headlight, is almost R1100RT in profile...I think I prefer the current gen RT, at this point. Lets hope it isn't too much heavier.

I've always liked how the 1150RT looked like, very pretty motorcycle.
Always hated and still do the current 1200RT.
This new RT looks great! So happy to see "monster face" finally being gone.

I think the tank rails might be under the camouflage tape - it looks like you can see something in this photo:



What I'm hoping is that they go with two models - one a luxo version with all the fruit - and the other a stripped down R1200RS...

If they do, where do I sign?

Cheers from Oz

I like it!!!

Sure does look like an RT version of the GT . It sure does look like tank rail is still there. Don't like one piece handle bars (how would one raise them)

I wonder if BMW would offer that pattern for sale, I kind of like it.

If when riding the RT you need to move forward and down to get into the clean air pocket provided by the windscreen do you need a new windscreen or would one of those top mounted deflector things do the job

The RT's have an adjustable electric windscreen. Just move it to where you want it.

I've tried the range of adjustments.

You may need an aftermarket windscreen. I'm 5'11" / 32" inseam. The OEM windscreen never gave me the cone of silence I desired. I went to a VStream Tall screen from National Cycle and Have achieved 95% nirvana. I rarely need to raise the screen above 50% to achieve a cone of silence. Below this I get better ventilation with noise levels similar to OEM. Others who have purchased other aftermarket screens have reported similar results.

The downside? When it gets seriously hot and humid outside you may wish to have a bike with the OEM screen or even another bike.

Winglets

It appears the winglets on either side of the windshield are protos hence the unfinished look to them. Maybe different configs will be available based on ambient temps? Don't care for the carlike gauge setup. All I can see is one slick tourer. 200 lbs lighter than the K16!

Thats what I was afraid of - venturing into the subjective territory. Ah well time to start experimenting.
