Maintenance and Servicing / Locks
« on: May 28, 2020, 02:03:08 AM »
Just a heads up, I was lubricating the locks on my panniers with graphite and figured I would hit the ignition and fuel tank locks at the same time. Everything was smooth as silk except the fuel tank lock, which would not turn at all. I had only opened the tank one time before so I was thinking that something was left inside from the factory and flaked off when I fueled up. The compressor was full so I shot some air down the key slot and tried again, it opened fine. I thought I might as well lube it up so I gave it some more graphite. I go to test my handiwork and again the key would not turn. The powdered graphite was my problem. I think the powder would not let the key go in all the way. I am glad I tried the air before I started taking things apart. Hope this helps someone.

I was able to contact my dealer and made an appointment to check out the 2020 X. Was looking for pointers on what dealer accessories to get and which ones to steer clear of. Mostly street riding with some gravel thrown in. Looking to add some protection and comfort items: engine/body protection, heated grips, hand guards/wind protection mostly for the heated grips. Any pointers would be appreciated. Stay safe.

Hi all, I don't have a 500x, but it sure looks like it will be my next bike. Current ride is a 99 BMW F650. I think it is time to move into a bike made this century and enjoy some of the advancements that have been made. I want to thank everyone for all the good info and the effort they put into making this a great site.
