My 82 has the original Black Vetter bags on it ...The Top bag keeps either bending or breaking the lock arm assembly from going on rides .. This happens between almost every ride .. I either rebend it or replace it from a new lock from Ace hardware .. Are the rubber bumpers shot , Or am I missing a spring to hold the top down ??? The side bag locks stay perfect . Any ideas ?

no , the latch itself bends after a while... Works perfect,, then works it way loose after going over a bumpy road .. I have replaced this lock completely twice so far,, I'm thinking the rubber mounts are too old and shock the cover up to the point of bending the latch... I did buy a small bungee yesterday to hold the cover down tighter .. Maybe that will help ...
