Saddlebag Lid Hinge

Postby Tris » Fri Jan 28, 2011 6:04 pm



Just noticed that the lid on the right saddlebag is loose. Further investigation revealed that the forward hinge is not attached to the saddlebag. The 2 screws that should be holding the hinge in place are missing. It looks like the screws come through the saddlebag body from the outside and screw into threaded bosses on the hinge. Looks like a simple fix, but I can see no way to get at the screws. Are they under the bumper strip on the outside of the saddlebag? How to get to them?

No point being pessimistic, wouldn't work anyway.

The chrome trim at the bottom of saddle must be removed to get at the screws. I used a hair dryer to heat up the chrome strip, it has a 3m product (two way sticky tape) to hold it in place, then you will find the 3 screws holding the hinge door. I am a cheapskate and removed the 3m product from the chrome strip and went to hardware store and bought another roll to replace it, I use a new razor blade to remove old tape carefully not to cut the chrome strip then clean both pieces and reattach chrome strip, or you can order new chrome strip and spend some money.
