    pannier elastic straps

    You probably all noticed the elastic straps and hooker on the inside of the pannier on the fixed half for securing, whatever? But did you notice the pannier hinged cover has the same cast in anchor points for the elastic straps that the fixed half has? I ordered and installed elastic strap and plastic hookers to fit both hinged panniers. What a JOY. It makes the panniers so much more user friendly, convenient, and usable. Just seconds to install.

    Highly recommended, and easy upgrade. I purchased the (4) elastic straps and (2) plastic hooks only.
    The eight "anchor pins" are grossly overpriced. Toothpicks would probably do the job effectively. I cant justify spending over $40.00 for (4) toothpicks. I used 1/8" vacuum tubing splices to anchor the strap. You may have a better solution. But go for it. Elastic straps on both sides of the pannier halves is a GREAT and simple upgrade.

    I installed them too.  I used all factory parts.
    Works well.

    I bought some 1inch elastic from a general store for about 2 sewed it through the eyelets and sewed a piece of Velcro to the centre of one of the lengths which fastens around the other. Did the same on my st1300 as a Yorkshire man I won't spend the triumph price for a bit of elastic.

    Why only strapping the base and not the lid is beyond me so I also looked into the price of that elastic & plastic bits which immediately stopped me buying them!

    I'll be doing the same as the others and making my own :028:

    I Did much the same with an elastic luggage net left over from a car boot. I cut it into smaller sections and then threaded, or wove or looped a piece of elastic cord through the net and secured this to the said luggage loops with a few zip ties.

    Same result but lower costs as I had most of the stuff and the net holds spare gloves and smaller items better than the stock strap on the main pannier.  :047:
    It wasn't me !!

    You can also use small braided bungie cords with a hook in each end and use a small 'S' hook to clasp them together.

    Great idea! Just did it with a few small bungee cords I had. All of five minutes.
