Re: Loose system cases

Hi John,

At the bottom of the cases there are pads on the frame which are wear items...

I replaced them on my bike at around 40k miles. It took the rattle out of my system cases.

Hi all:

The system cases (standard size and lids) are original - came with
the R1100RS in 1999. They seem be getting loose on their moorings -
not enough to worry about losing them, but they do rattle and bounce
- maybe 1/8 - 3/16" vertical play. Maybe it's my imagination, but I
seem to recall they were snug, once upon a time.

I wonder if there is a way to adjust the latch mechanism? I see the
cover to the latch on the inside of the case is riveted - before I
drill them out and play around in there, has anyone looked into this.
Are they adjustable (by design or by tinkering)? Leave well enough

Thanks everyone for staying with this list, BTW.
