    I did a search and found a lot of info but the threads are old and one of the main sources of old Krauser keys seems to have gone out of business 3 weeks ago. Such luck!! :D

    I need at least one S150 key for my bag locks, not sure yet which key for bike-to-case locks. I'll post that number when I find it. Anyone have one laying around they don't need? Source of one?

    I did see that Krauser in Germany will sell me one for $32. but it's quite a wait so I'm trying you guys first. TIA. :1drink

    Can you post a picture of what you need? I've got a number of old krauser keys lying around.

    Bob's BMW in Jessup MD still shows Krauser bags on its web page and that is where I got my keys long ago. Worth a look and a call. Those keys went with the bags and the bike they were on last year.

    Sure, I don't have a picture of a key, (obviously), but here are my locks. I need to run downstairs and see if I can make out a number on the case-to-bike lock. Thanks a lot.

    The key itself should also have the number on it from what I've seen photos of.

    You may have already thought of this, but maybe a spin to the local locksmith would help. Those guys are very ingenious and helpful. He may have a blank that will fit, and be able to "shoot" the lock to get the cut correct. If he comes up with a solution, flip him 50 bucks and have him make a couple extras.

    It appears that you do need the S150 key for that latch due to the shape of the hole. I just installed a new set of latches that had the S150 on the latch but the key was a flat SN7. They were purchased over 10 years ago and were the last set Motobins had.

    The bag to rack is usually an S324 key.

    Hepco & Becker make a complete replacement lock (HB-700107) for the old Krauser bags for about $30 including the keys. Not cheap if you did 4 of them I suppose, but if your old locks are getting worn, it's not a bad idea as the lids pop open easily. I wrapped a strap around mine for that reason.
