Unstable paniers
« on: 07 June, 2020, 10:14:44 AM »
Hi, I here bought used panniers, but struggle to mount them so it is stable. :183:
Should pannier swing back and forth i gap in front support? see picture.
I also can't get the stabilizing wire behind correctly, but see no faults, do you see any faults, see attached photo.
I am tempted to drop the wire, and rather make panniers stable in the front with the support. Good idea? :187:
greeting Tommy

Tommy ive got the same, they are meant to swing a inch or so to help cornering stability. The 2nd pic diesnt look right but in the 4th you can see how the pannier is engaged into slot. Hope this helps. That stabilizing bar looks like it needs adjustment.

They are designed to float/move in turbulent air at speed to prevent weave,
So Mr Triumph says

They are indeed designed to move with turbulence, e.g. passing trucks, etc. IMHO they do work too, certainly the bike feels less affected by crosswinds on motorways when fully loaded, compared to my previous Beemer with fixed panniers.
