    I can't get my bags and trunk back on...

    I have a 2014 triumph trophy se and I took off the side cases and top box to see how it looks/how much weight it drops...

    Well, I can't effing get them back on! It seems super simple, I can't find a post, I can't find a YouTube video which means I'm apparently the only person who has had this problem.

    Welp, anyone able to help a guy out?

    Key has to be in the unlocked position with the carry handle up, there is a slot on the lower back side in the front of each bag that slides over the puck looking bracket and then they drop down into the top two mounting brackets.  Closing the handle locks them in place and from there they can be left unlocked for easy access to open them, or locked closed completely.  The top case needs to tilt up in the rear and the tabs on the front at the bottom go into slots in the bracket, then lower it into place and lock it down with the handle.  Same lock options available on the top case.  I've been away from my Trophy for a couple of months sooooo, well, let's just say I've slept since then.  I think that's as close as I can come right now.  Do you have the owners manual?  They go back on just the reverse of how they came off.

    Like trophied said .....

    Just to add : Make SURE that the forward "slot" in the panniers
    engages with the "puck" - It IS possible to hang the Panniers on the rail,
    and miss that engagement.  It is also possible to hang the panniers on only
    one of the two hangers so double check all three points before riding off.

    Once the Panniers or Top Case are correctly back ON the bike,
    to fully lower the handle and lock them in place the key has to be
    turned against its spring return pressure to the fully unlocked position,
    allowing the handle to be pushed down flat, securing the luggage in place.

    You can then either release the key from its spring pressure
    which will still allow the handle to be lifted and the pannier
    or top case removed, or you can turn the key to the locked
    position and remove it, which prevents the handle being lifted
    and the pannier or top box removed from the bike.

    Cheers  :821:

    This is exactly what must be happening with the Panniers! Thank you both. I'll try to put these on again tonight.

    As Coconut intimated, it is possible to place them incorrectly.  Once I refit mine, I grab them and give them a damn good rattle to make sure they are secure. Some members have lost a pannier down the road.....

    Careful - it's possible to break-off the little tabs that engage on the top of the case on each side that the cases hang from.  Just ask the previous owner of my bike.  They are made too weak IMO.

    I hade to drill two holes on the one side where they broke-off so I could affixed the top of the case on that side with ty-wraps.

    I feel good about the top box that is nice and secure the panniers are giving me anxiety. I made a video to better show why
