  • Road King Saddlebags

    I just bought a pair of leather covered Road King bags. Anyone ever mounted a pair to a 2001 Midnight 1600?

        I also took the HD emblems off and replaced them with Roadstar tank badges

          Nice! I'd admired your bike but hadn't picked up on that tidbit of detail.

        I know where there's a leather covered Rifle brand fairing if you're interested.

          I used Easy Brackets for mine. 5 years and going. Have handled the weight of everything I've ever loaded in the bags with no problems.

            Isn't it possible to modify the stock Yami brackets used with the soft bags? Just wondering..

              Yes, it has been done by welding a 3/4” steel tube horizontal on top of the lower bolt brackets and removing the two vertical straps on the OEM brackets.

                Saddlebags arrived today. Been going thru the responses. I'll probably take roadiemorts advice and buy. Or at least buy and modify. Good opportunity to go to Harbor Freight. I like the Harley type better than DC's because of the smaller diameter brackets. Thanks and I'll let you know. Getting ready for a run from Florida to Houston all state or county roads. No highways.

                    my spin is the ROAD KING is not a mono-shock(softtail) model, as such, it has dual fender/frame mounted coil over shocks, and the bags have indents for those shocks, and have less room inside.

                      I liked the way these bags looked so I bought them. Still looking at brackets. Trying to finger out if the road star backrest brackets will fit with it or not. DC shows theirs do. Looking at softail brackets but not sure there.

                        to use DC brackets the exhaust needs to sit at the axle centerline or lower. they can work with vh longshots but it is a tight fit

                          I have the Speed Star exhaust on the scoot. Picked it up on ebay after my roadhouse got destroyed in my last encounter with a cars from fender. Sure miss those systems. Just bought a cheap pair of brackets for a softail conversion. Will see what comes next..

                            This is what I am going to do if no one sees an issue drilling at this location. Its simple. Been out of town on business so thinking next weekend. I would like to thank him.
