Saddle Bag protection

I am looking for saddle bag paint protection for my FJR. I know Invisigard has whole bike protection. The only thing they sell separately is for the tank. Is there anyway you can buy sheets or is there an alternative? Can it be purchased locally? Thanks

A forum search came up blank. Sorry if this is a repeat.

Best of luck, I just laid out $280 to get mine repainted. I have an 05; unless they changed the paint, the stuff Yamaha uses sucks! Way too soft...

It has to be soft, it's on a flexible material. If it was automotive-hard, it would crack the first time you flexed out the case cover, IMHO.

Go to sportbikeeffects.com and check out the case protectors they sell for the FJR. I think you click on there products tab then on top of the next page that pops up you can specify the FJR for related products. The case protectors I believe are on the third or fourth page of products for the FJR. The covers protect about 3/4 of the case and I believe there is no better protection out there for them. Check it out.

Check out 3M paint protection film. I used it on all potential wear areas of my 03 Model. Its a bit tricky to shape tot he panniers but patience will be rewarded.

Many thanks for the suggestions.

I was looking for film protection as opposed to covers; though covers would be a great solution. I found the 3M film Silverado was referring to. I think some auto parts dealers make carry it. If not, the links below provide e-commerce solutions. My friends definitely say you need some kind of protection. Even a few minutes on a gravel road can pit the bottom of the cases.

I had my panniers done with film at a local workshop which does car graphics, they used the same film that is used on car bonnets to prevent stone chips.

Not them Anne Summers pannier covers again.
Tell me no one has brought any more of them. Why not just wrap the bike up in cotton wool, fer feck sake.
Think may be I will post a picture of my battle scared panniers and me in my new Heine Gerick flo jacket. 199 but very good. No rain comes through it and all I wear is a Tee shirt underneath and I have been out is some real wet weather. Like some bikers do. Silver dont show up the dirt see.
