    Love it, very strong, no vibration and it can be adjusted for the perfect position.

    I guess. I put a small bead of RTV around the outer edge to be sure after this install.

    Not sure that will help, but if you properly seated the seal, it should be fine.

    Still getting used to BMW seals. The front Main I had to to replace because there was no lip for the seal to rest on. I pushed it in too far. I installed the replacement flush. I'm thinking I did this seal flush as well the last time. This time I pushed it all the way to the circlip. Looks like about 1mm below the surface.. Then I put the RTV over that. Just a bit to help out.

    Yes, that is why I spent $600 having it rebuilt at the Russell Day Long company. Worth every dollar as the wife is happy on the back.

    In the event I am on the side of the road after dark, the open lid can help.

    Plus, now I can line them up and they say XXX!

    This is like a scene out of the first Mad Max movie. Nice.

    Got my GS-911 today. Took a few min to set up. Has a lot of features that I won’t use yet but I cleared my service reminder so happy with that. Went in on it with my dad so we split the cost. Only thing makes it tough is on the 2019 the obd port is on right side cover so you need a tool to open it and I don’t always carry tools. However I will have to carry at least that one Torx bit now

    BDCW Helopad with Givi 30L case.
    I'm trying a lighter weight and lower profile solution to the pillion seat with my bigger top case.

    It wouldn't take long to switch it all back for when I go on long trips and need the extra capacity - which is once a year.

    I tried these before the BDCW solution and they don't quite meet my needs.
    One is the Nelson-Rigg pillion bag which is pretty nice and roomy.

    The other is the official BMW GSA pillion bag. It's a very nice unit and matches the tank bag perfectly.

    Both work best when mounted on the pillion seat. The straps and buckles work better with the extra seat height and they are contoured to sit on the seat.

    I think I will sell them.
