Buying pre-owned 1190 adv oem touring cases

I'm buying a pre-owned 1190 adv oem touring cases set (side cases + top case) and I have a 2 questions. I called a few dealers but nobody was able to help me.

1- seems like a stupid question, but can the key locks be easily removed from the cases? If yes, I guess the first owner need to do that himself because the key is needed for that (at least to open-up the cases and access the mecanisim).

2- do I need to buy new key locks or can I reset the original locks to my own key (I hope I can because the locks are on back order until the end of August)?

Thanks

The locks come with a load of different sized metal parts that you put together to match your bike key. Might be worth asking the seller if they kept theses first and if they will remove the lock or make sure they leave it unlocked for you to remove yourself. I'm not to sure how easy the lock will come out

i had a long chat with my KTM dealer last week about this very subject, as i am also in the process of buying a second hand set of these cases.

here's what i know:

once fitted, there is no way to release the lock mechanism from the case. there is no tab to depress to release like BMW have on their pannier locks.

to get the locks out, you need to drill them out. some experience at this is an advantage as it's easy to damage the case, writing it off.

You don't need to drill the locks out but the case must be disassembled to access the locks for removal. When I was installing my locks I put on of the tumblers in wrong and learned this the hard way. It's not impossible at all just time consuming. Dealers should have replacement tumbler keys to help get the bags set up for your key .

Hahahaha... I was nervous that I was going to have to drill the locks out too but after a half hour or so of removing fiddly screws I had access to the lock.
