Hi everyone! Can somebody show me (with a picture please) the correct way of setting up the brackets for the panniers of the Caponord 1200?
It seems that mine was not correctly done by our local dealer. They seem to be very loose and the plastic part has been eaten up by the bolt due to
the friction. Need you help guys. Thanks.

Thanks nisbeam. My pannier on the right side had the same problem of not locking. It saved me the trouble. I also was able to check out the picture
and compare the wrong way my dealer installed the bracket. Thanks again!

It's worth every Travel Pack owner checking that the Panniers lock in place. The dealers don't see to give a t*ss. When I picked my bike up and rode home the left pannier had not been secured properly. Fortunately I got home before it fell off.

I'd also recommend lubricating the locking mechanism as it faces it forward and water ingress is inevitable.
