A pinned case will never come off by itself.

My first car was a motorcycle.

Practically any hardware or farm supply store, Lowe's, Home Depot.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

So, you had no idea the pannier had departed the vehicle.

Or you realized it and went back and retrieved it?

I suppose it going missing could evade my notice until next stop, or even perhaps the next week.


or two,

If its got teats or tires, your bound to have trouble with it...

my 2014 came with 2 cat collars installed around saddlebag handle and bike frame.
previous owner noticed how weak the latch was.
i had already learned about lost saddlebags from my search for used bike, many had only one saddle bag.
bikebandit lists one side only as being available.
will post a pic when possible of cat collar solution.

Bryan from Twowheelobession has done a couple videos about this situation.
Concluding there are only two ways for bag to fall off.
One being that the handle was not locked in position
Two being lock falls out. Recommends removing screws holding lock in place and using locktite on them to prevent them loosening.
Bryan has very many great videos on the FJR

Already pointed out on first page. If locks are properly dealt with then anything else is unnecessary, other than peace of mind.

I have also loosen the screw and just put some under the screw head and retightened. When it dries it will still lock screw in place.

I checked mine (2016) last night, and all screws were lose, but still in. I used locktite so should be good to go I guess...

Loctite blue needs to be applied to the screw threads. Just under the screw head will not hold.
