50L Adventure Tailpack Zip replacement
« on: April 16, 2018, 07:29:37 PM »
Hi,

Would anyone know of someone who would be able to replace the main zip on a Triumph Adventure Tailpack? The one on my bag has finally given up and finding someone to take on the repair due to the way it's been stitched into the lining is proving difficult. I've tried bike clothing repairers, and general clothing repairers who have all said they can't do it. Seems a waste to replace the whole bag when only the zip has gone.

Thanks

Long shot...tent and awning repairer? Trouble might be getting a zip the right size

Talk to outdoor equipment stores they often have contacts to repair similar gear. Some cobblers also do equipment repair if you can find one.

I finally found someone to take on the job of replacing the waterproof zip on my Triumph tail bag for my Tiger. I was on the verge of binning it as at least 6 other people including tent and sail  repairers wouldn't take it on. Claydon Leather Repairs have done an excellent job of replacing the zip with a proper branded one and putting it back together as it should be.
