The instructions I got from Jesse for the boxes sucked. Not too bad though and it was easy enough to find some of the missing bits and pieces online as they were still available on the xplorermoto.com website with better photos and instructions.

Still can't believe that there are quite a few holes in the boxes and not a single sealing o-ring used under the washers. I guess I'll take them apart at some point again and add some self-cut rubber sealing in the relevant areas. I doubt there will be much of a leak, but I don't want even drops in my stuff when I pay that much for luggage.

For the original complaint: get real and check online before you send stuff back. It's not the hardest thing to do ...
I created the instructions for all the bikes except a couple. It is easy to tell, my e-mail and company information is at the bottom of each page I created.

I know I did not do the KLR, and I missed the Verseys and there were some newer bags and bikes I didn't do.

I would really appreciate some details on which bike and bag set-up, if I did the instructions on them.

Thanks,

Jim

PS I did 11 bikes instructions.

Oh, you have really following along, right? Half of what he ordered - my ass. He got exactly what he ordered with one note missing from the documentation that the o-ring isn't needed.

Why would someone call this "getting half of what he ordered"?

Tiger 800, Odyssey II panniers, docs for the setting up the bags, not the racks.

Please note that the instructions from xplorermoto.com for setting up the bags are much more comprehensive than what I was sent from Jesse Luggage.

Yeah, I didn't do those.

I offered though.

Jim

PS Yes I got paid, but it was so little I earned about $2 an hour.

And they are fairly "lacking" for lack of a better word without being impolite.

Not upset, but please let me know how, as I created the instructions.

Jim,
You're instructions are excellent. The problem (at least for the panniers I bought a few months ago) is that they're shipping the bags with the old instructions. I had to download your instructions from their website. Not a big deal, but I can see how the OP might not have known about the new Internet version and became frustrated with the old ones shipped with the bags.

Hell if Jesse had offered to let me ship the product back at their shipping costs I could have lived with that.
if spending 1650 for luggage for a big trip is such a big deal to you, you shouldn't wait to the last minute to order and install stuff. you sound like a whiney puss,

I agree. They should immediately refer the new/prospective buyer to the best instructions available. (Not that mine are perfect.)

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure my name wasn't on bad work.

In a blatant attempt to blow this up outside of any logical proportion I guess. Maybe it is time for him to hit the road and get going since there seems nothing else to do then whine over a missing o-ring or a bit incomplete documentation and get the feeling what this gear really is all about.

My buddy has a GS and went to the factory in Phoenix, talked to Jesse himself and bought the bags on site.

Brought them home and asked me over to help him, he was stuck. Now we're not the brightest bulbs in the string but we just couldn't figure out how to mount the right hand side bag. After a lot of head scratching, a few drinks, we finally saw that they had given him two left side bags.

They made it right and they are very nice, built like a bank vault, just don't expect everything to be perfect all the time. One would think that as long as they have been in the game they wouldn't screw up, but they do.
