Heavy duty hinges for 2011 tour pack.

Does anyone know if anyone sells heavy duty hinges for the tour pack? Mine are starting to bend from the excess weight ive put on them and years of abuse.

The moco, of course, sells an upgrade. Here's a link:

You have to drill out the rivets on the stock versions, but it's probably worth the relative low cost and the trouble. There are half price versions floating around flea bay. Buyer beware.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

I just picked up a set of the heavy duty latches and hinges in black, I think they look great and work great, they were a pain in the ass putting them together along with the lock mech but I think they will be worth it.

+1....I've ranted about this repeatedly!

For whatever reason, there are many who actually crow about the top-quality replacement parts that are available for our bikes, either from MoCo or aftermarket.

From my perspective, this is not only true, it's an UNDERSTATEMENT. In most cases, you can't buy a LOWER quality replacement part than what came on our bikes! This should be a source of deep shame for MoCo, not pride.

The remarkable thing is that up until the 2014 model year, the CVO bikes had those crappy stock metal latches!

How about the $30 RGU tour pack lid retractable tether. Don't ya think MOCO can have this as a standard option rather than the insulated cable? Nope... because they know your going to buy one or get one as a present.

Well.......

HD not making the retractable teather a stock part is understandable, I guess. Isn't that more of a convenience than a replacement for a necessary part that sucks right out of the crate? But installing crappy hinges and latches that don't stand up to the test of time is complete BS!
Don't we spend enough of our hard earned money on these motorcycles, American Icons, that we should expect and demand that the better quality parts automatically come standard?!?!
Oh god, here I go again! Sorry
