Mine isn't noisy, although I do still have the baffle in. With the baffle in it probably sounds very similar to the OE one, but I can't comment on how loud it is with no baffle - I decided I didn't...

Personally, I am not impressed with the inner liners. I bought a set and whilst they are very good quality, they do not fit the panniers very well at all. Particularly the LH side where they give you...

I know you said you didn't't have the brakes on, but did you by any chance have the parking brake applied? I ask because I have done this myself- wondering why the bike felt sluggish only to find I...

I've recently taken the plunge and ordered a pair of Rally Raid 19"/17" wheels - they use the Bartubeless system.
