It keep saying that the left saddlebag door is open on the dash, but it is close. The trunk and the right saddlebag is working ok. Do you think the switch is bad or it need adjusting.

Mine does that occasionally..........when it happens, I just bump it with my fist and it clears on the screen. If that doesn't clear the problem, I'm thinking adjustment. :cool:

Mine started doing thattoo not long ago but I also noticed that it appeared when I was having trouble with the left bag not opening. Have you had that issue? It has been common and you can search the forum for related issues and fixes. My sensor problem went away when I did a little bending of the latch opener mechanism.

Have a peek in just as the lid is almost closed to see if the latch is entering the lock dead centre. The latch tends to bend very easily, especially when the pannier is loaded fully and the latch can actually miss the lock. You end up with a closed pannier held by one lock whilst the other is not in the lock at all. I have had to adjust mine a few times by bending it slightly. I bent the rear box one so many times that it eventually snapped in two, so I carry a spare set of latches in the pillion pocket just in case. It has to enter the lock in the centre to operate as it should.
