    I would suspect the barrel has not been fitted correctly and fallen out as the only thing that actually holds it in is a single wafer.
    Has a tail tidy been fitted or locks replaced at any time?

    Good news is it's an easy fix, buy new lock barrel and code to ignition key and fit as you would with the panniers (lots of vids to show how on YT

     Indeed only very simple locks... The  spring loaded wafer on the top is the only one keeping the lock in. and it sits in a plastic housing.  The other plates are all retracted with the key inserted so you can turn the barrel. The plates only exist in 4 different versions, and although 6 are shown here I think mine had only 4 or 5  fitted. That's 4^5 combinations, you might find someone's key will fit...

    No recent tail tidy fitted but had a problem fitting the seat back on a few weeks ago so when I pulled the key out I may have dislodged the barrel maybe.

    Similar with re-installing the seat some time ago... solution for me, was to slide in place at the tank, than slide seat towards the back a few mm, before clicking it down over the lock.

    You may probably find a replacement  at a decent price on eBay or similar ? This UK site is very good and may give you the part details to help in the search in Oz.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I have used Motorworks before and they are brilliant. Great prices and I had a Givi engine guard that cracked just out of warranty and they were awesome to help coordinate through Givi.
