    BMW Pannier Repair on Slash 5

    Greetings,

    Need to repair the panniers - one of "rivets?" that holds the hinges is gone - what are your suggestions for repair? One hinge has a small nut and bolt that PO must've added, but was hoping for something more substantial.

    Also, the elastic is shot - I know a woman who does sewing & repair work replace the elastic on my K75 panniers, probably will do the same here once I get hinges buttoned up.

    Thanks

    A small cap screw with a nylon insert lock nut is probbably the easiest, use a small flat washer on both sides of the hinge.
