Warped Saddlebag Lid
It appears that over time/ware/abuse the saddlebag lids can/do deform a bit making it nearly impossible to get them to seal properly (or at all..). Hence the left bag lid on Alice is at a point where even with a new late model gasket it still has enough of a gap to audibly vibrate at around 2,200RPMs making a sound - loud enough to be heard over the drag pipes - that sounds a lot like the Jetson's car. It is kinda funny for about 5 minutes...and then it quickly gets annoying as hell.
So... does anyone here know of a well proven or (reasoned) theoretical method for removing the warp or straightening (however one wishes to phrase it) a saddle bag lid?
