Nice to have a lid that stays up now.Dead simple to do and the mounting simply bolts onto the original top panel mounts and rests against the fuel tank with double sided tape to form a gasket.Struts are Hafle 80 n 268mm.I hope my mod will be helpful to others with ineffective boot stays.Higher pressure gas struts are available if needed.

I also had trouble with the boot lid dropping - usually on my head.

I solved the problem using a small curved file, and slightly enlarged the indent where the roller sits when the boot is open. Now the boot stays open.
