    Small top case and central locking?

    I assume the central locking should work for the small top case on my 2017 RT but it doesn't. Is there a way to get it synced up?

    Thanks!

    Does it have the electric connectors?

    Sorry, the small case doesn't have the electrics to mesh with the central locking. Your best bet -- have your small case keyed to match the keylocks in the other cases.

    The side cases don't have any obvious electrical connectors and they work with the central locking...

    It is keyed to match but I have to dig the key fob out of my pocket... I know that's trivial but with everything else being keyless, it's an inconvenience.

    FYI: have the top case keyed to the bikes key, then have dealer order a non chipped key to use to lock/unlock case and seat. The key on the fob is not very sturdy and costs $$$ to replace
