    Hepco Becker Keys

    I have a set of older Hepco Becker, Krauser/BMW style bags.

    The locks for the bags are marked with a 6.

    Hepco Becker says the 6 keys are NLA.

    Anybody know where I can get a set of keys?

    Anybody have a pair in their tool box/extras they would like to part with? St.

    I thought Bob's BMW carried Hepco-Becker bags...I checked the website and they might since these were Krausers maybe migrated to BMW bags...I'm just not familiar with them. Snowbum also discusses Krausers in the middle of this page:

    http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/locks-caps-etc.htm

    Then there's places like Repsycle in Ohio for used parts.

    Key

    I have looked over Snowbum's article, no mention of a Hepco Becker 6 key.

    This makes it very intersting in that I have seen and have S150 keys, they don't fit the locks even though the lock says S150 on the latch, the actual moving part of the lock has a 6 stamped on it. So, according to Hepco Becker, I need a 6 key. They are NLA.

    Hoping someone has one laying around.

    Would it be reasonable to contact Krauser per Snowbum's info? Have you made the rounds to the used part places?

    If all else fails you can upgrade the latches to an improved version. All depending on how much you value the bags. You would need two pairs and I would asked for a matched set of keys.

    Agreed. There is a little box at the bottom of that ad. Click on it. It says never show again. It took me about 5 times before I saw it.

    Nla

    Well according to Hepco Becker and Krauser, the key I need is NLA.

    For what it is worth, it has been a bit confusing trying to sort out the number game on these old bags.

    So I guess I will have to:
    One find a locksmith/luggage repair person who can make a key.

    Two, change the locks/latches on the bags.

    Three, hope someone has a loose key laying around in their tool box or desk drawer that they would be willing to part with.

    Thanks everyone for the help. St.

    I have a couple of loose S150 keys. I'll sell if you need any.

    I have found a key

    I found a key! The previous owner looked in his toolbox and found a key for the bags I have.

    To be honest, it does not look like I expected it to.

    At least now I have a key that works and know what it looks like.

    Now go see if you can get some copies made before you loose this one.
