Default Saddle bag lid paint peeling

I was hitting the bike with some detail spray the other day as I got caught out in a shower. I just noticed the paint on the right bag lid right at the hinge looks like the paint is peeling up where the hinge contacts the bag. I'm afraid water is going to get up under it and then its going to be real trouble.
Called Victory today and he suggested I contact the dealer and see what they say. But I pretty much can figure they are going to A:To bad pal you didnt buy it from us. B:Victory aint going to warrent no paint for a second owner on a 2013. TS I may just email the pic to them and see what they have to say though. I hate to ride over an hour one way just for them to tell me to take a hike.

7/19/16 Fixed pic orientation.

I am not sure if I smoked too much weed???? But I can't for the life of me figure out what part of your bag that is? It's really hard to ascertain exactly what's going on in that picture.... My bags are peeling on both fronts. I posted pics on a thread about rock chips awhile ago. Once it starts on this shitty paint... I don't think you can stop it. If I was Victory that would be one of the things I would address soon, as I have heard Indian paint isn't much better.

Yeah; I kinda think you're right. I don't think they will warranty a 3 year old bike with a paint defect at this point. If it was in the first year they likely would.

The picture isn't very good on my monitor. If it's the same color red as PaiN's then maybe you can do what he just got done doing. He starts on post #73 at the thread below.

Yea sorry about the pic folks. I forgot it was sideways until something was mentioned. I'll fix it tomorrow maybe. It is happening right at the point where the hinge meets the lid. Its almost like a layer is peeling up. I hate to get touch up paint and daub it up and make it look like a bigger POS.

can't see so am asking is it the clear coat or the paint.
Either way I think you should go to a body shop and ask them what they could do for you. You can bet your dealer will say sorry but can't help

Now that I can see it; it may be worth taking some contact cement to those spots after first taking a razor blade to slice around the spots to lift them. Clamp it down long enough for whatever you use to set. Epoxy would be fastest. It wouldn't take much. Using a toothpick to apply it would be about right.

If it doesn't work due to bad adhesion for the entire clear coat it's no big deal because it can simply be sanded down later. It could simply be a couple of spots where someone picked up the parts with bare hands and oil from their skin kept the clear from adhering as well as it should have. Obviously if it covers a larger area this wouldn't work but if it's just a couple dime-sized spots you might just get lucky.

Thanks for the idea BBob. Sort of the direction I was thinking. I was actually thinking razor blade to cut at end of where it is peeling up and then touch up where you could see paint missing. but your idea is much better. However the "paint peel" wont lay flat. So going with your idea, maybe take the lid off, heat it with a hair dryer to give the paint some flex and then clamp down flat. Then when cools the bonding idea?

If I read you right you want to first try it by heating up the clear coat with a heat gun then clamping the spots down to see if it will adhere. I can't see the harm in trying and once again; you might get lucky and it works. What will you use to clamp it down? Some small pieces of soft wood maybe?

If that doesn't work plan A might work. It would be cool if there was an adhesive with a syringe type needle so all you would need to do is just puncture the bubbles enough to slip the needle in and give it a tiny drop or two then clamp down as before.

Just for grins I checked Amazon to see if there is such a thing and whaddayaknow; there is. You can scroll down a little to see a glue that works with it to set stones in jewelry and what not.
