- Remove the seat > two bolts and nuts are underneath.
- Slip the seat off.
- Using brackets (angled), the angle will point away from you from the frame. Crank angle is away from the bike so as the swing arm comes up and down it can’t obstruct the panniers. Often the bolt holes don’t line up these are mass-produced and it’s not a great thing just to put a bit of pressure on them. Just change the angle slightly until you get the whole centers correct.
- Pull the bolts out 14 mm on the inside. Use a rattle gun but you can use a ratchet
- Once the bolts are out, get the washers on your kit and put the washers towards the head and slip them through the holes.
*Note: When you’re doing the nuts up on the inside, don’t pinch any of the wires.
- Then do the same on the other side. The pannier support is to stop the panniers from drifting into the rear wheel and it keeps it away from the motorcycle.
- Place the panniers and once they’re in the right position you can use the tags on the side to pull it in tight to the bracket. And at the bottom, there’s the bracket wherein you will insert the cable tire around that and along that bottom rail. At this point, don’t do them too tight > zip them up a little bit until you’ve got everything central, and you’re satisfied with the position then you can pull that zip a little bit tighter.
- Then put the seat back on.
Note : Once you put both panniers and the seat back on, the only other thing that can happen is air can get underneath it and bring them up. To avoid that, check the little tag at the back > put a cable tie around the cleat and it’ll just stop the panniers from flying away.
