In a message dated 10/14/05 12:18:32 AM Eastern Standard Time,
I broke the front hook off the right side bag on my R1150R. Did not hurt
the bag, just broke off the part that hooks over the bag mounting rail.
I tried using JB Weld to "glue" the broken piece back on, but the first ride
on a bumpy road caused it to snap off again.
I can fabricate an aluminum piece and connect it with bolts through the bag,
I think. Does anyone have a better suggestion?
Does BMW sell bags in pieces? Does anyone have a busted left bag and want
to sell their right bag?>>
You need part number 46 54 2 317 620, which is the right inner bag section.
You will also need the rivet kit to swap the lockbox assembly over, part
number 71 60 2 319 470. To install the rivets, you will need to modify the
nosepiece of a standard SAE rivet tool to accept the metric-sized rivets. I just
take a smaller diameter nosepiece and drill it out with a metric drill to accept
the rivet shank.
