tour pak lid wont close

Recently purchased a new mutazu tour pak and during the install of the gasket i noticed that the gasket is so thick and firm that it doesnt allow my lid to close all the way. it leaves a gap of about 1 inch on the latch side.

Has anyone else had this issue with new tour pak gaskets?

I was going to try that but my latches wont even engage enough for it to hold close. Maybe i will weigh it down for the night and see if it breaks the seal in.

Other than the lid not closing how do you like the mutazu pak? Does it seem like its sturdy enough?

Other then the lid not closing i think you cant beat it for the price i paid. I firmly believe in you get what you pay for so my expectations were not terribly high. But i am more then pleased with it. the paint appears to be uniform throughout the whole unit with no imperfections that i can see. The pre drilled holes needed to be enlarged a little bit cause i bought it with no hardware and used the premium hinges and latches from harley. Other then that i am very satisfied and would definitely purchase from them again.

I live an hour away so i was able to go to the warehouse and visually inspect my purchase beforehand. Gina was very pleasant to do business with, and not to mention her and Patricia are very beautiful ladies, so it was a win win!!! She also gave me the forum discount and no tax cause i paid with cash!! I plan on getting their lowers next!!!

Now if i can only get this tour pak installed correctly!!!!
