Your post got me thinking. I did not know there were two styles of lock barrels.

I purchased a TRK33N and TRK46N earlier this year. They were separately keyed, but I used a Givi 2-lock set and replaced the originals with the new barrels and now both cases are keyed identically.

I have a set of E360 cases that are color-matched to my ZZR; they are identically keyed also.

Then, lastly, I have a Traffic II case that has its own key pattern.

I had always figured I could cross-key the Traffic II to either of the side case sets with a 3-lock system, but now I'm not so sure. The thought of cross-keying all five cases had also been in my head, but I'm not certain how one could buy two sets of 3 lock barrels and be able to make sure they were identical.
