Lock cylinder removal
I bought a lightly-used tail bag with locking base plate for my '03 RS. It only has one key, which of course doesn't match my bike. I'm curious as to whether I'd be better off getting a spare key, or re-keying to match my bike.
I looked at the lock mechanism, and I'm not sure how to remove the cylinder. It appears that two pins hold the outer casing of the lock cylinder, and they are a press fit. What's the trick for getting the lock cylinder out (if that's the recommended course of action)?
