Proper lubrication - Vaseline

Postby r90beemer » Wed Feb 11, 2015 10:11 pm

I purchased a new top case for the new to me 12 R1200RT and it didn't want to fit, the handle that latches it to the luggage carrier resisted closing all the way. A sage mechanic told me that they do tend to be tight and can be a "bugger" to close when new. He advised me to use Vaseline to lubricate the female parts which mate to the luggage carrier and it allowed the latches to close easily. Tom Moe - RCB Montana
