Bag gaskets

Post by vet57air » Fri May 04, 2018 4:59 am

Does anyone else has the same issue I have with the factory bags? You open them and the gaskets get pulled out, having me to poke them back into place. Could glue them. Any other ideas?

First i would try some silicon spray wiped onto the outer face of the seals, should stop them sticking and improve the seal.

If that doesn't work then try something non permanent like a small amount of rtv gasket sealent behind them just to hold them in place.

What gasket? My 2017 doesn't even have gaskets, seals, just plastic overlapping lips? Maybe they left mine out?

Yeah all I have on my 2017 are plastic lips. The driver's side pannier lets water in as well. I think KTM is going to replace it - but it's really just a design flaw. There's just too much surface area on the leading edge of the pannier without any fastener... there might be a way to put an adhesive rubber strip on the outside edge of the bag or something. Really though, it's probably just something I'll have to live with.

My original 2016 bags did not have a gasket. I had them replaced under warranty and the new ones came with gaskets. There are several different generations with updated part numbers with the latest having a smooth shiny KTM badge compared to the brushed finish one.

Yep,

Ended up using a silicone glue. Now they are stuck. Best,

Doc :? :?

Same problem although have only been riding the bike for last week of so. I'm not too worried about it yet, don't mind pushing it in as long as it keeps water at the end of the day.

My left bag gasket was repaired (probably "re-glued") under one of my 7 warranty claims thus far (7 months, 5,000 miles).
