WELL WELL WELL......I p1ssed my self laughing when i read this today and so did my Thai GF.....why couldn`t you have asked this a month ago...lol

I have the SW Motech Bags and had them for about a year plus no issues at all...(wait for it),

UNTIL, i fitted the danmoto de-cat pipe and used the OEM can last month..

We went for a tour to Siem Reap (Ankor Wat) Cambodia starting from here in Thailand.....On the way out no problems, BUT when we got home and the G/F was doing the unpacking of the bags,,,,,,,,shock horror, there was a 10 inch snotter of plastic dangling from the right bag....not the bag it`s self BUT the nylon zip for the expanding section was melted......Grrrrrrr

So unless you have a 3rd party fuel controller fitted to sort your mix out, i suggest you rivet on an aluminum thin plate on the bag base like i `m going to do....or change the zips to metal ones, providing the bag holds out...

Thanks for making me laugh at myself....LOL

P.s now i know why they are called Sw motech BLAZE panniers

I have a pic. I actually used them this weekend on my trip from Vegas to Carson City for a Conference. They have plenty of clearance and stayed put. I'll have to upload them to image shack so you can see. Will do soon. Trying to unwind from 10 hours in the saddle.
