  • Bags and Seats

    Alright I use to hate saddle bags I won't lie, but as my taste matures, I will admit their growing on me. Sadly the way I have my signals set up saddle bags won't do as I don't wish to relocate them (I drilled out the frame beneath the rear fender). So does any one know of a nice swingarm bag for roadstar, also in the market for some leather studded seats.

    Yah, there's lots of choices but it's hard to see what you're talking about with that little icon photo. Can you post something bigger so we can see just how you mounted your lights? As for swing arm bags.... Just Google, "swing arm bag". As for seats, there's lots of studded options out there, you can get almost any seat in a studded option, or have studs added. What do you have now? Stock seat? If you're happy with the stock seat, which most people hate for good reason, I'm more than sure there are stock studded seats sitting in member's garages. Just create a post asking if someone wants to swap. But I'd highly recommend an aftermarket seat. *Anything* is better than stock, just stay away from Pacific Coast Star [PSC] seats. They're just stock seats with the foam shaved down, sow they're actually worse than stock.

      I mounted the signals where the screw for the flare would go, however this entailed drilling out the frame peice inside the fender to a larger size for the threads for the signal, so if I were to relocate them, it would mean either get a new frame peice for the fender or secure it with a bolt and nut, but I rather like the signals their, know any bags that might clear those?

        You could easily run a number of bag supports with the signal there, just might have to drill out the support mounting hole, so you can keep the light. But the support would go on first, then the light on top of it, like the chrome fender eyebrw. The aftermarket HD replica "Softail Conversion Brackets" would let you run HD style bags if you want to go that route, or some different brackets and use some studded bags, etc.

            theres lots of clearance issue with bags and exhuast, duals allow lower mounting of HD style bags. HD ROADKING bags are made to straddle HD dual shocks, so , they are not a great choice. bags and a window are a must for me, a daily rider. i like the OEM hard bags, hard to come by, but easy to mount, shitty hinges, but mutazu makes a direct replacement for 50 clams. a HD purist would frown on OEM bhard bags because they dont have the exact "look" of a COP bike, but cant beat em for ease of install with OEM breacketry. and the soft bags also bolt up to same bracket, Vstar 1100 bags, not brackets will work. the OEM leather studded are pretty, and have the ole injun look. i have a brand new set in my bedroom, but i wont part with them. the softies as i call em are tuff as hell, ABS back and rear, real leather tops etc, but are a bit smaller, if u go grocery shopping, ull have to bust up a 18 pack to fit em in. if u like ole skool, and dont mine smaller storage, id go for the OEM soft bags, they come up for sale all the time. and if u score a set of hards, they bolt right up, and u can sell the softies. make sure to get the harware, there are 4 bolts, and 4 spacers, 4 rubber grommets each side, 2 smalll, 2 large. most of the hard bags are keyed alike, as i have 4 sets/bikes and they all workl in all. keep your lunch warm in right bag, beer cold on left(except duals)
