Trouble Shooting

Due to manufacturing tolerances, surface finishing's and other variables that will block proper fitment, below is some solutions to known issues.

❗ Issue: MotoBags blocking and latch not closing on BMW OEM racks.

✔ Solution: Check for excess weld marks and remove. Remove with tools that will not leave residue and rust (i.e. do not use a steel rasp/file or wire brush). BMW OEM racks are made from stainless steel and electroplated. If other racks are steel, surface treatment maybe needed to protect from rust.
