Tool box issues
In reading current and past posts (as well as information from other Web sites), it looks like the issue of the tool box lock falling off (and, in some cases, the door following suit) is a real problem with the Vulcan 750. I've read the number of proposed fixes and safeguards, but my question is whether or not to trust the tool box at all? Does swapping out the lock for a new one from Home Depot/Lowe’s really do the trick? Or is using sealant on the existing lock good enough? I'd like a place to keep my registration and wallet, but I don't want to be paranoid and have to check that the door's still there every few miles, either!
Why, in 20 years of manufacturing this motorcycle, wasn't Kawasaki able to fix this problem?
