Thanks def, yup I'm all over the above.
Braided lines. Gonna bleed them this weekend and take it from there.
Here's a question for y'all. One of the hinges on the OEM side cases broke. Thinking it was all sun-exposed and brittle. When I opened it and let the lid all the way over, a little chunk of plastic fell off and now it wants to come off. I'm thinking, I can rig a piece of fishing line or something as a tether to keep it from flopping all the way over. The hinge stays put if the lid isn't opened all the way.
Anyone know if I can get a replacement hinge or other way to fix better than a fishing line tether (haha)?
