    Anyone else out there troubled when you close the Touratech Top Case and you pinch the stop cable between the body of the case and the top? I was. Here is my small and inexpensive modification to stop the pinch!

    Go to your local hardware and purchase a light-weight 2" spring that expands effortlessly to about 4 inches. Replace the hinge bracket screw closest to the cable with a screw that is about 1/4 inch longer so you have enough room to place the spring, a washer and a nut over the end of the screw. Obviously, attach the other end of the spring to the lid stop cable.

    Works perfectly.... as you close the lid the spring will gently pull the cable toward the inside of the case.
