    Question Hinges for hard System Cases

    What hinge arrangement(s) are needed to switch between, city, standard and highway lids? I see that Karl Kruger no longer makes his Klamps and I wondered why they were needed in the first place. Do you need 'extra' long hinges to mount the highway lids or something else?
    Is there a replacement product on the market or do I just buy BMW hinges?

    all three lids take the same BMW hinge. replacement hinges are machine screws with nuts instead of rivets. buy one set of hinges and change lids as desired. I went from city, to std, to large on my RTP that way.

    If the Klamps are what I'm remembering, they were just a quick release hinge to make swapping between lids easier. The BMW hinges with machine screws instead of rivets will work fine and will take just a bit longer to change over.
