but is the stock lock able to be rekeyed to fit the others?
Yes, it is. When I bought my '83 it came with 5 different keys. Ignition, right fairing cover, fuel door, bags, removable bag locks (it had Hondaline removable bags). Don't quite know how they all got changed but the bike was 23 years old when I got it so it must have seen a few interesting days. My father showed me how to re-key the locks and I was able to rekey them all to work with the ignition key.
This is often true of the earlier Goldwings, however with the advent of the GL1500 Honda used Left hand and Right key blanks for the locks, if you have a mix of locks on the bike and your key will slide into the lock but not turn then it CAN be re-keyed, but if the key will not
enter the lock it is not
possible to do.
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut on the saddle.
