You may need two sizes

Some bikes (mine, a 2012 GS) use two different sized E-Torx for the handlebars. My fading memory says they are a E-10 and E-12 female size

If the air chuck doesn't seat by itself exactly as it should, hold it on to the valve stem with a little hand pressure. Works every time for me. YMMV.

OK, I'll ask this question before any more shaggy dog stories surface. What is a "simple out of true issue"? Did you hit a rock or some other immovable item?

Anyone Mounted a Rotopax to the OEM Aluminum Panniers?

I was thinking of doing the same, one for gas, the other for water. The water rotopax is handy when moto camping, reduces trips to the camp water supply.

Also, when traveling with a rotopax, it's...

I took mine in for a warranty suspension replacement and the tech found the cam tensioner leaking (just over 20,000 miles). Oil wasn't as noticeable as the OP's photos though.
