    BMW pannier protection Kit
    « on: 2015-10-15 14:57:00 »
    Just bought the BMW pannier protection kit which consists of two rubber/plastic stick on pieces per side and a small cardboard template to indicate the position from the hinges, anyone fitted this as there are no instructions, unbelievably, they normally tell you not to do things whilst standing in the bath and other useless tips.I only ask as they are quite flexible and could probably be stuck in the wrong place and I'm not sure how they should look. Thanks

      Had them on my bike. Easy fit - just work out where they go before removing strip and when happy remove film and place gently where you want them. Once sure position correct press down hard all along the strips.


      Note. Before fitting clean surface thoroughly and don't fit them unless temperature is reasonable as they won't stick fully in cool weather

        Got mine from Halfords (UK) for under £10 the pair. Great value.

          Thanks for the reply Gents, I assume 'wildones' you no longer have the bike otherwise a photo would be much appreciated, I saw the Halfords strips, a bit more Sierra than GTL !!

            Yes sorry pal but no longer have bike. I like many thought the OEM one sounded expensive and yes you can get some bits of rubber from Halfords for a tenner BUT FWIW the OEM one fit, look good and work brilliantly whereas the cheap ones just look cheap. This is an £18K bike so I think they are worth it

                Winston, thank you for the pic of your very clean K16, that is great I now know where they are supposed to go.
