I just got to one of our plants, that happens to be 40 miles from home. I put my keys in my riding pants, and promptly locked them under the seat :cry: .

Is there any way to pop the trunk without the key? Is the cable release under the maintenance "hump" and can it be triggered if I pull the release? It's going to be an expensive cab ride(s) or a long evening in fabulous Danbury, CT. if not!

Thanks for any help!

i heard that u can remove the plastic covering with a few screws to get to the ignition switch and then manually pull the trunk release cable.

maybe others can help as I avent had to do this.

In the future u can rig some picture wire to do this better

Good thought... I've removed the plastic several times to install an intercom. Can't recall if the cable pull was readily visible, but it's definitely worth a shot! Now to find a philips head somewhere around here...

Any other ideas, or confirmation if I can pull the cable from the ignition switch would be appreciated. If you have security concerns, feel free to PM me at patgrayjr AT yahoo.com

OPENED!!!!

Got the trunk open. Was surprisingly easy. I won't note how to do it here, but I was able to get it open in about 15 minutes. If I had to do it again, it should take about 4 minutes.

Needless to say, I wouldn't keep my platinum IWC watch or gold bars (I wish!) under the seat, since any "enterprising" person with a screwdriver and about 2-4 minutes can pop your trunk. It was almost too easy!

The watch would be okay but the gold would slow you down way too much! :lol:

i routinely carry two gold bars in my trunk as I didn't want my wife to find them. Guess I'll look for a new location.

Me too, I keep all my life savings in the trunk and hope
that my wife won't find it. :lol:
You think the 650 trunk is any safer?

Everyone who wants the "trick" please send me a personal message via the message board. It's easier to track than responding to individual emails.

Question : How is providing the answer to anyone that requests it via email or PM more secure than posting it on the forum?

With all the talk of a 4 minute compromise, I was wondering how to make the seat MORE secure.

I'm thinking about stuff I'll want to carry in there, but not sweat bullets if I need to walk away for a few.

Any thoughts?

If it is posted on the forum, anyone can come onto the forum in "lurk" mode and read it. And they might not own a Burgman, and might have ulterior motives. I'd rather not see it openly posted.

I'd encourage folks to prepare in advance by installing the picture wire bypass - which IS posted. One person claimed it didn't work out for them, but it works fine for me, and it has worked for others - so something they did was not the same, perhaps the routing of the picture wire. The bypass wire can be hidden, so it is fairly secure.

The point I was trying to make is that this is an open forum. Anyone is allowed to join. Those who wished to know how to open the trunk would only have to signup to the forums and request a PM with the information. There is no way to track how that knowledge is used. Limiting it to PM/email is only (in my opinion) providing a false sense of security.

Why not request from the 'requestor', proof that they in fact own a Burgman? Without giving away any personal information that could lead to identity theft, I'd think just a copy of their insurance card should suffice! If someone merely wants the info in order to get into Burgman trunks, they'd first have to steal someone's insurance card!! The card can easily be scanned and attached to an email... not like its a big deal.
