Soooo, bored at home and looking at motorcycle parts. Lo and behold I find a part I did not know I needed, the Kuryakyn Tour-Pak Chrome Lid Grip! Of course, I ordered it right then and there.  Is there a cure for the “Chromavirus”?

IMG_20200328_112610604I must state that I had thought about why there was no “handle” to raise the lid and that it was kind of weird that you had to grab the lip of the lid to push it open. But when I read Kuryakyn’s part description they hooked me Kuryakyn Tour-Pak lid grips blend in perfectly, while providing ideal leverage to easily unlatch and open the lid in one fluent motion.”

It was not long before it arrived, and it was time to install. Opening the package and reading the instructions it was going to be an easy install.

Four screws, remove old OEM part, put new part on with the same four screws. Easy peasy right. Well yeah, until you notice that the screw heads are stripped.

I cleaned the area, surprising how much road grime gets into small spots, and then slipped the new Kuryakyn Lid Grip on and replaced the screws.

The part looks and fits like as if the Tour Pak was sent from the factory that way, and maybe it should have been. I like it, as of this date it is on sale (both chrome and black) for $22 US.  Easy to install and helpful I give it 5 Stars.
