Pannier Fitting
« on: January 06, 2012, 05:27:22 PM »
Just preparing to have a run out tomorrow with full panniers to see what the bike rides like versus no luggage. Its fiddly to get the panniers on - and I notice that the fixing points on the rear bottom of the pannier do not seem to fit fully onto the rubber bungs on the end of the pannier stays. Picture below shows there is a gap - is that what it should look like?

yep that's exactly right Joe.  when they are locked onto bike if you lift  the pannier at the rear you may notice a little movement.  it appears to be the mounting method used at top of pannier

My first big journey was 130 mile on mine complete with panniers and topbox n high screen on.  empty I doubt you Will notice they are on the bike.  I HAMMERED back and never noticed they were on.

I don't know what kind of weight you are Joe but my suspension preload was stock. 2 clicks on shock if you look.  the panniers are not exactly lightweight but I'm only 10 stone so it was just like Mr average bloke 12-14 stone on the bike.    if your around 14 stone id go 1 click up on preload. when they are loaded possibly 2 clicks up on preload. 
I found that worked great with my vtec when loaded up with full camping and touring gear.

Thanks Paul - am in between the two weights you mention - post xmas nearer the higher one.
I found loaded panniers easy riding compared to previous bike.
