The clear map cover on my BMW RT tank bag finally gave up, any thoughts on easy ways to preserve/replace that feature?

I believe you can get it repaired here.

I contacted them once to see about replacing the zipper in my Bagster tank bag. They said they were able to replace the zipper but in the end I decided just to buy a new one since my old bag was in bad shape.

I had Linda at Custom do some repair work on an aux fuel cell cover, good work, reasonable price.

Rainy Pass in Seattle repairs all manner of soft goods. They specialize in complicated stuff - goretex, dry suits, etc, and they are a BMW warranty repair facility (or something like that).

I've had a variety of things repaired there. Two thumbs up.
