Thanks Harry, looking at the pic it looks like the left side bag/understand why they had to position it on that side.

Sweet



They went on easily.



Solid build and a tight fit. No flex at all. Nice hardware.



And they look good, too.





So far my only concern is the exhaust floats a bit and may knock, but no damage expected. I would liked a little longer bolt for the exhaust....

These look great on the bike.

Finally got my 800GS and I have the same bags on order. I installed an Akrapovic muffler which is slimmer (but still quiet), so I hope to have a bit more clearance.

Harry Swan----What brand of skid plate is that ? Is it suspended by the stock rubber mounts.

The bags look good -- I have some charcoal ones on order.

Those look great.

Glad to see we finally do not have to move our turn signals for one of these installs.

Good color match.

Cornering clearance? It looks fine, but what's your opinion? Have you loaded it and tested yet?

Jesses are a work of craftsmanship

On my second set (different bikes)....wouldn't have anything else.
Yours look great. Think black on a yellow 800GS would look better than grey/silver.

If you have never had Jesses before. You have to watch the handle screws after a few months if they do not close easily or are too loose....easy to adjust from the hex screws inside. Jesse recommends locktite and it does seem to help. I covered the top, side, front and back with the 3M film and I swear after 50,000 miles they still look like new....3M film is about $30 but eliminates the boot skidmarks when mounting and dismounting...especially on the right side. You do have to watch not putting stress on the hinges when packing...learned the hardway but it was my screwup but was easy to fix...best not to put the D ring hooks on the lids for the same reason...stresses the hinges.

Odd problem installing my Jesse's

I got my Jesse's today and installed them. I ran into a small problem with the bar that mounts across the top of the rear of the bike. One of the nuts inside the rear of the tail started spinning and now I cannot screw the bolt all the way in.

Anyone else have this issue? If so, what did you do to fix it? TIA!
