Default Right Saddle Bag Latch Kit

Need some help...

I saw few weeks back that Vic had a kit to replace the commonly worn/damaged latch for the right saddle bag. The kit did not come with a new lock, supposed to reuse your existing lock. I have looked everywhere and canít find the information.

I don't think Victory has made any effort to replace these. I don't even think they sent out a Bulletin .

There is no reason Victory can't offer a latch and either have dealer techs transfer the whole original lock cylinder or replace the tumblers of a new lock cylinder with the original lock cylinders tumblers. Dealer auto techs do it all the time.

I noticed HD's new saddlebag latches feature two striker
plates to secure the lids. They must use a single latch/lock and linkage. I'd like to see Victory do something like this.

If its not too worn, just bend the loop over and call it good

Someone posted the part number for just the pot metal latch housing and a short write-up on how to take it apart and put it back together. Apparently that was not here.

Already modded the loop. Latch was about 50% worn at the time and hasn't moved since. I will be tearing the bike down for paint here in a few weeks and wanted to fix this while I already have it apart.

I'm glad I stumbled on this thread because I had not heard about any latch problems. Can someone please tell me what exactly I should look for? What exactly is wearing out?

Archer.. look at the thread above for the Witch Doctor link.Go to DIY videos and look for chassis . There is one in there about this latch.
