Can anyone tell me how to adjust my right side bag latch? Latch works but doesn't open my bag on my 1988 GL1500. Must be a cable to adjust??? Have been opening with emergency button inside Trunk.

I found the cable adjustment behind a small clip out cover in the back,center inside the trunk. Just undo it and you have access to cable adjustment similar to brake cable adjustment. I adjusted it and is working like new.
Thanks for all your help

bag cable adjustment

I think there may be an adjuster for the cable, remove the screws holding the latch cover on, one on top lip of trunk and 2 more inside. If more inspection is need latch canbe removed with another 4 screws outside.
