  • What bags will fit on what model?

    Got an 03 Silverado with the studded leather bags (and studded Corbin seats w/ snake skin accents) … it’s pretty, but also pretty much not my style. Been looking at bags, and not sure if I’ll find anything in the $150 range (used) but wondering if like 2007 xv1700 hard bags will fit on my 2003 xv1600 without any new brackets. Found that on eBay which is why I’m asking that specifically.
    but are the different model years interchangable?

    All stock bags and all stock brackets fit all years.

      Be careful buying brackets off eBay. Many vendors and sellers don't know exactly what they have and sometimes the brackets look similar between V-Star and Royal Star and Road Star. You end up with something that doesn't fit. And as far as aftermarket items that you could buy on eBay for example almost none of the saddlebags are large or well made. Best to stick with OEM Yamaha if you can find it. And if you want to set of used stock Silverado hard bags expect to pay a minimum of $400 plus shipping for a good set. And then you'll more than likely have to paint them to match your bike.

        Thanks for the info. So the new question is do I have stock brackets? I inherited the bike and it has Corbin seats. In the first photo us an eBay listing for a 2001 xv1600 midnight.

        The second photo shows my bike and brackets.

        it’s hard for me to tell from the photos if they’re compatible.

          You have no bag brackets yet, the chrome brackets shown are your backrest brackets.

          Those don't look like stock bags in the Ebay listing either.

        these are the stock bag mounts that will work with the stock leather bags or the stock hard bags.

              Here’s a pic of my current bags, they mount right to the backrest mount you mentioned.
              are they not stock?

                Those leather bags in your photo are not stock. Just Google road star motorcycle and you'll see what the stock bags look like in the promotional photos.

                Take a closeup pic from the back,curious how those are mounted, easy bracket more than likely.

              Here’s the existing bracket and the connection on the bags themselves.

              So based on what I'm reading, I can take the mount off my leathers and attach them to any set of bags and be done with it?

                Yes those are just generic mounting spindles for a variety of aftermarket saddlebags. You'll have to get rid of those and get the correct factory brackets and then either hard leather or hard plastic factory bags. I have both on two different road stars as well as street glide Harley-Davidson bags on another road star and they all work great.

                  Oh, so you're saying I can't just take off the bracket on the current leather bags and remount them on a hard bag? Just re-use all the easy bracket parts?

                    You physically can but you won't be happy with the result.

                  What will be wrong with them?
                  I don’t know what the difference is between all the east bracket options.

                    Lack of proper support when you load the stock bags as they are bigger and hold more weight further out away from the bike than the bags you have now. Some folks have fabbed a brace from bag to bag but this now circumvents your quick release option.

                  If you want to use factory bags you have to use factory brackets unless you really want to spend a lot of time and money making something custom. And obviously there's no reason to do that when you can buy a set of bag brackets for probably $100 on Facebook used from some Road Star guy there.

                      No locks or key?

                      Haven't been able to find them yet. But as I understand it, you can buy the Mutazu lock/key set and be set
