Gluing my saddlebag lid back on

My saddlebag lid detached from the part that locks. 2005 with 107K miles.

The black glue towards the front, and nearest the hinge is all covered with dirt. So I think it's been working its way off for a while.

Any idea what glue I should use to get this back where it belongs? My first thought is the 3M automotive molding tape (03614). I'm concerned that it is too thick and will allow for the separation to redevelop sooner.

I also expect the other side is working itself off. What is the proper/efficient way get it off so I can preemptively re-glue it?

I suggest RTV silcone rubber. You cannot get them apart easily.

I'd say RTV as well. Squishes where you need it to..........
In the past, guys have either left the bag out in the hot sun or gently used a heat gun to warm up the mastic that was used by Yammy, then gently pry them off. Don't try this with a Gen3 DAMHIK, but they are glued with some ultra super **** and you won't pry it apart no matter what you do.

If anyone knows about lids, it's you. After I get the right side off, I'm sending them both to you. The left dragged when it fell. I'm surprised the hinge area didn't melt because it was sitting on the muffler for a few miles/minutes.

Any idea what the glue is on the Gen 3?

RTV is a good choice. Stay away from construction adhesives, they may melt the plastic. The RTV for automotive applications sticks good. Wipe everything down with IPA to make sure it is clean and oil free.

I had the same thing happen to my '04 while riding through the Ozarks, luckily my buddie alerted me when it happened over the Sena and I pulled over before scratching the skin much. E 6000 is what I used,holds excellently, although any quality silicone type adhesive should work fine. I tried pulling apart the skin off the other side case, as it was a little loose around the edges as well but the remaining glue held very strongly, and I left it as is, and just keep an eye on it.

Only that it's ultra super ****...... For Gen3 you can buy the lids separately in the colour for your model.... I tried prying the damaged lid off with heat and essentiallly ruined it, so bought a new one and rivetted it on.
