    HANDLE for TOP BOX/PANNIER (maybe from damaged box/pannier)

    Looking for a handle to replace the one I damaged when having to break in to my top box. It looks like the same handle is used on the panniers, so a handle from a pannier would also be ok.
    Does anyone have a completely broken lower top box or pannier from which they would be happy to salvage a handle?

    Do you mean the handle in the photo?

    Apologies for delayed reply. The handle I need is the larger U shaped one (see photo).

    What a pity!!!

    If you had asked how to open the TopCase without breaking anything, it would have helped you privately.

    All sorted.
    I ended up installing a replacement used handle from a tiger 800. It was pretty easy to install, the only slightly difficult task was separating the lower section of the top box from the top section, but with a bit of heat from a heat gun it came apart fairly easily and, with a little silicone grease, the two sections slipped back together easily.

     :460: Well done and that knowledge might well help someone else in the future  :028:

    Might be worth a specific thread on "how to"
