Lost saddle bag

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Well it finally happened.  During my 30 mile commute, mostly interstate, I lost my right hand side saddle bag off my 1996 Triumph Trophy 900.  It was maroon/burgundy in color.  I have been meaning to revisit the locks because I have found them open even though they are locked.  Luckily I only had a rainsuit and a bag with my swimsuit, goggles, sunscreen for doing laps at the gym.  Unfortunately I probably lost it on the interstate which means it probably cartwheeled a couple hundred times and it was unlocked so it probably popped open and lost all its contents.
   It was also rush hour morning traffic and I traveled in the left lane most of the way into work, so when it fell off, it fell to the right and probably into traffic where it was most likely was smashed to smitherines.  I will re-travel my route on the off chance that it gently bounced off the road and onto the shoulder or sidewalk.
   Anyone with a spare set of panniers? I am heart broken...

Hi Rick,

Sorry to hear about your pannier. I also had one take flight the first week
I had the bike. The easiest fix is to get a couple of two inch wide velcro
straps. Which just install right over the existing clasp. You might have to
cut them down shorter and sew them back together. But it is an easy
process. And works like a charm.

Best,
Samuel

Hey Rick?
  Sorry to hear of your misfortune. What a drag, an expensive drag. I have a ’95 BBBB-BRG, that was just a big "Sport-Bike", back then. I had a set of soft bags, that served well enough, but I wanted to have lockable, storm proof GIVI bags. They were the only outfit that had a hard bag set (top box, is just another side bag, so I can move and balance my load by moving the heaviest of the three, on the top, center. I was looking at the GIVI site a couple days ago, and noticed they have a set of "Top loaders", now. They load like Harley bags. I prefer the top loaders. I, may just buy me a set, if they use the heavy and solid steel mounts, that the original set has, I might buy them. I think that they are smaller than my "clam-shell style", to use for around town. Where were you when you lost the bag? Just incase some group member found it? "Ya never know?"
Kindest regards,
   Poppa Jack.

Thanks Samuel for the quick trick.  I was looking into a way to "secure" the bags if I find a replacement.  I have an inmate in PA that says he has a set that I am trying to purchase.  If that falls through I will try Pin Wall Cycle in Ohio.
Poppa Jack, I lost the bag on my commute to work.  I travel from the east mountains near Albuquerque to Rio Rancho, NM for work.  I have an ad in Craigslist Albuquerque in the "Lost and Found" section.  I have traveled the route 4 times since I lost the bag and haven't seen any sign of it.  Maybe in a few weeks, I might see it on eBay for sale...

Re: Lost saddle bag

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Hi Rick,
I haven't done this,  but have read about it on this forum.
The bags can sometimes slide a bit too far forward, allowing the "barb" on the lock tab to slip past the "barb" on the pannier securing catch.  Other possibilities might include wear at that location, allowing the lock to pop open.
Some enterprising list members have experimented with inserting a trimmed object into the end of the channel that the pannier securing catch slides into.  This object doesn't allow you to slide the pannier far-enough forward that the lock catch doesn't engage properly.  It results in a fairly tight lock fit.
Alternate options might include physically adjusting the lock catch or the pannier catch to create more overlap.
Double-check that your pannier mounting rails are intact.  These come up for sale regularly on eBay as bikes are parted-out.

Re: Lost saddle bag

In reply to this post by Triumph Trophy mailing list
Rick sorry to hear the panniers lost.
Like everything else the rubbers in the clasps wear.
There is a rubber block that keeps the securing hook on the bag close enough to the clasp to stop it rattling and keep it from pulling free. If you pull one out you will see the indentation on it. You might find if you just turn it over it will once again be secure. Failing that pack it out with a thin piece of rubber behind the existing piece. Even if you secure them by some secondary means you should still do this as they rattle around otherwise. When it's properly secured as it would have been from new it should not easily come away from the bump stop on the hugger. Also if you look carefully where the hook goes into the clasp you should not be able to pull it past the little hook on the clasp

Nigel & Rick point out the problem and their solutions, both effective. I
have had the same issue twice. Luckily I am in a relatively remote area and
both times when I went back they were still on the side of the road. My
solution was to elongate the holes for the attachment bolts so the catches
could be moved enough to overcome the problem. I think this solution was
posted by someone a while ago. Turning the rubber pad around sounds easier
but would need monitoring as the compression could continue.

 Bend clasp with pliers so it engages better or as in the FAQ take rubber out, use as a pattern and cut a couple of copies from an inner tube and insert the lot.

RE: Lost saddle bag

There are supposed to be little rubber blocks in the end of the channel. When these lose the glue and fall out it allows the panier to move forward a couple of ml and the clasp doesn’t remain under tension. The trick is to replace these small rubber blocks and glue them in properly. Then make sure you have the clasp locked. Problem solved.

Hi Rick,

I haven't done this,  but have read about it on this forum.

The bags can sometimes slide a bit too far forward, allowing the "barb" on the lock tab to slip past the "barb" on the pannier securing catch.  Other possibilities might include wear at that location, allowing the lock to pop open.

Some enterprising list members have experimented with inserting a trimmed object into the end of the channel that the pannier securing catch slides into.  This object doesn't allow you to slide the pannier far-enough forward that the lock catch doesn't engage properly.  It results in a fairly tight lock fit.

Alternate options might include physically adjusting the lock catch or the pannier catch to create more overlap.

Double-check that your pannier mounting rails are intact.  These come up for sale regularly on eBay as bikes are parted-out.

- Dave

Thanks Samuel for the quick trick.  I was looking into a way to "secure" the bags if I find a replacement.  I have an inmate in PA that says he has a set that I am trying to purchase.  If that falls through I will try Pin Wall Cycle in Ohio.

Poppa Jack, I lost the bag on my commute to work.  I travel from the east mountains near Albuquerque to Rio Rancho, NM for work.  I have an ad in Craigslist Albuquerque in the "Lost and Found" section.  I have traveled the route 4 times since I lost the bag and haven't seen any sign of it.  Maybe in a few weeks, I might see it on eBay for sale...

Hi Rick,
Sorry to hear about your pannier. I also had one take flight the first week I had the bike. The easiest fix is to get a couple of two inch wide velcro straps. Which just install right over the existing clasp. You might have to cut them down shorter and sew them back together. But it is an easy process. And works like a charm.
Best,
Samuel

Well it finally happened.  During my 30 mile commute, mostly interstate, I lost my right hand side saddle bag off my 1996 Triumph Trophy 900.  It was maroon/burgundy in color.  I have been meaning to revisit the locks because I have found them open even though they are locked.  Luckily I only had a rainsuit and a bag with my swimsuit, goggles, sunscreen for doing laps at the gym.  Unfortunately I probably lost it on the interstate which means it probably cartwheeled a couple hundred times and it was unlocked so it probably popped open and lost all its contents.
  It was also rush hour morning traffic and I traveled in the left lane most of the way into work, so when it fell off, it fell to the right and probably into traffic where it was most likely was smashed to smitherines.  I will re-travel my route on the off chance that it gently bounced off the road and onto the shoulder or sidewalk.
  Anyone with a spare set of panniers? I am heart broken...

Rick
