Saddle bag lock stuck

My RH saddle bag won’t unlock and open. Any thoughts? Also my IC won’t work. Can’t talk to my passenger. Could be a blessing lol. Pic attached for you Chief

I believe the owners manual addresses this, On page 6-24 TIP The saddlebags and tour trunk cannot be unlocked electronically (via the unlock switch on the unlock button on the fuel tank or the smart key) if their locks were mechanically set to the lock position.

Also on page 4-12 TIP Occasionally, it may be necessary to reset the lock cylinders to their proper unlock position with the mechanical key.

I would recommend using the key to lock then unlock the saddle bag and that should reset the lock and work electronically again.

Post Edit: You have to have either the Yamaha branded 7-pin cords, or as some are using, the Harley-Davidson 7-pin hook up cords,....using Honda GoldWing 5 pin cords won't work, if having had a prior GoldWing.

For the Intercom, you have to turn it on, under COMMS, and you also have to set both rider and co-rider's helmets to CHECKED in the activation boxes for each under AUDIO OUTPUT, in the Communication sub-section. Then, finally, you raise the volumes of each (my wife and I use around 7-11)

You have to press your CB/Intercom trigger switch (on the front of the left handle bar pod, and your co-rider needs to press once, her, or his left side communication button. The Passenger/Co-Rider button can be used to press once, the Intercom is live, press again, and the Intercom session is ended, even though the Intercom is activated within your COMMS menu.

This is one feature that my old 2008 Wing never had, that if the Intercom was live, the talk circuit was always live, even if you didn't want it to be. With the SVTC, you can have the Intercom communication hot, but just not have open communication with the Co-Rider, until you do wish to open channel, or she/he wishes to open channel.

So, all of the above needs to be in play. It took my wife and I a couple of uses, before it is now old hat for us. The most important thing, is that you make sure under AUDIO OUTPUT, that both helmet selections are 'on', under the Communication heading. Then...you go to VOLUME, and adjust that for the each of you. The SVTC is so sophisticated, that all volume functions can be independently set n' forget for each saddle station. It takes some time to curve-learn, and set up how you and your Co-Rider will like things set. But, what a great bike, that this was allowed you...and not one volume for all...!

If it moves and shouldn't, use Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.

My stepfather bought a new 1975 Buick Lesaber convertable. He told all of us: never lock the doors.

If someone sees 25 in the car and they want it, they will take a knife and cut the convertible top open, causing $500 in damage, to steal that quarter.

Its not their car, they dont care.

Motorcycles are the same. I never lock my trunk. If someone wants to see whats in it, they will break it open. They dont care.

My Harley's pannier lock got stuck in the "push down" position. A few squirts of WD_40 and it was all ok.

"Never had that happen, with a metal plate attached to the side that says;"-----> Bike owned by Mr. Smith and his Co Rider, Miss Wesson,....C.C.P.

I've never had a break in....;or outright theft....

Absolutely correct Bill. The electric lock can only function from what is a “neutral position” which is “unlocked”. The electric lock will not open a lock which has been mechanically locked by the key.

I think that that might be, because a mechanically locked mechanism, would cause the electric system, unlock solenoid damage, when attempting to unlock, a mechanically locked-by-key, junction. Just thinking out-loud....and good on Mama Yama....
