Yamaha saddlebags photos

Recommended Posts

As promised pix of the little bags hung. Quite secure, a strap pulls forward to hold the rod in the sleeve. There is 12" excess on the straps (one size fits all) so I pulled them over the seat to hold each other together. A square foot of Velcro holds the bags to each other over the seat and by pulling tight they are surprisingly steady. I still can't believe the crummy hardware that replaced the 12mm bolts on the footrest brackets. Hopefully the Locktite will keep them firm. 6mm Allen head screws are undersized for this application. The wrench spun in all four screw heads so I cannot loosen or tighten. check it out here <iframe class="imgur-album" width="100%" height="550" frameborder="0" src="//imgur.com/a/U16tR/embed"></iframe>http://imgur.com/a/U16tR#b94Pgtn

I really like them. I need more carrying capacity and I'm torn between saddlebags and a tailbag/case. These would definitely make it easier to throw a leg over.

I like them, but I am so torn because I bought the bike for the naked look. I love the minimalist look of the bike, but I have to admit they would be helpful.

How easy are they to take on and off. What does it look like without them on

I disagree on the hardware provided. I didn't have any issues with bolts stripping out

Think I'll be getting a set for my commute and weekend excursions. Look great, but gah, the price is a little above what I would consider fair. Is what it is though.

Everything went braap.

Rip the Velcro, snap 2 straps and they are off. The rods left on are not unsightly but can be slipped off. Permanent install is the brackets under the footrest attachments.
