I pulled too hard on the opening latch on my 2011 R1200RT and something snapped inside.
Now it won't latch.

I looked at the max BMW fiche and, wow!, what a complicated mechanism and procedure to work on it.

Anyone have any experience with this kind of problem with that latch mechanism?

Thanks for any help.


Retired & divorced 2014. Looking forward to traveling after I get my place renovated and sold.

Wandering and wondering
I never thought about lubing the case latch mechanism. What's the preferred way to do this? Hit all the slots and holes with silicone spray?
