SKIZIKS Here you go.

This is a $6 part in Canada. I don't think new case backs will fix the problem. So as nice as that is, save yourself some time and aggravation. These are self-installable easily. 2 minutes and I had done both my cases.

larrykay BMW does make some special rubber shims for this. The kit consists of three pairs of different thickness I am not sure what message board it was on, but it was within the past month. Search here or on the I-BMW board.

6000 mile service and pannier problem

Just had my 6000 mile service done here in the UK for the grand sum of 87 (about $174). Quite reasonable I thought and nothing abnormal with the bike.

At the same time I also mentioned that my panniers were loose with as much as half an inch of "play" in the top mounting. The solution, dealer has ordered complete new pannier backs! I thought there were some "shims" that could be used, but they know best
