So much has been written here lately about saddle bag not opening.

I had my whole latch mechanism replaced under warrenty abour a year ago with the new version, and now
the left side slicks when level is pulled.

If this happens to you try this first:

Take some silicone spray lubricant, and wipe the rubber gasket around the door. (Silicone is a great lubricant for all rubber door gaskets on sun roofs on cages doors and trunks).

I was told those gaskets over time get sticky from dust and dirt.

This fixed the problem, and pops open everytime and a lot easier then working with the latch mechanism.
