BMW key to fit Givi topbox

Anyone with a new Givi topbox and would rather not have two keys? You can modify your Givi barrel to work with your BMW key - it's a bit of a fiddle but worth it.

I found a step by step guide on google
http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/how-to-re-key-givi-trekker-to-bmw-key.1205884/
Cost me £4 for a needle file set from a local engineering shop and took a couple of hours but works a treat.
I found it easier to remove the flap mechanism and refit it than use a matchstick as used in the guide.
