Re: Replacing left side saddlebag lid on K1200lt
Those rivets are big and heavy duty. When I replaced mine I bit the bullet and bought them with the skin. My rivet gun has screw inserts to use different thickness of rivets, you will need a similar type gun.
With a heat gun you can get the plastic off but you also must get the reflector insert off first, chances are you are going to need that at least. I know 15 bucks! Or use some of the new super reflective tapes out there, in any color, and call it a day.
