Factory panniers service

Riding no matter what weather is out there. My KQR saddlebags' lock/unlock mechanism started to feel a bit dried out (not lock cylinders).
2 questions:
Who had experience taking those apart (for lubrication purposes) and what kind of lubrication is the best?

Mine did that and I didn't do any disassembly, just shot the key hole full of WD40. I also shot the plastic mechanisms with silicon spray. It worked *but* WD isn't the best thing for the key & tumblers. It eventually sets up so you have to repeat at least once a year. A graphite lubricant is probably best for the lock itself. It's what locksmiths use.

If moisture exposure is a factor, I think Boeshield T-9 would be perfect. It doesn't rinse off and it also protects against corrosion. Use the drip bottle (not spray) so you can apply it precisely to the metal pivot pins.

Boeshield is so great for so many things, amazing stuff.

Got Wurth cylinder lock spray (have it at work). We use it at work for cars. Works just fine. My other alternative was graphite powder.
Talked to dealership mechanics...they use sprays specifically made for that purpose (including Wurth)...rarely the powder.
Probably try to get Boeshield for myself to have it handy at home.
kenors, regarding silicon spray for plastic mechanisms. Do you have a brand name?
thx everyone for replies!

mazy330: It's Pro Honda Silicone Spray. A bit hard to get to where it's needed but with the luggage off and unlocked I just moved the locking mechanism up and down sprayed the stuff into the cracks where the parts moved in and out until everything loosened up. If it dribbles on stuff don't worry, no stains or spots remain after it's wiped off and dries.
