  • Side bag bottom screw from bottom

    This was my first mod in 2003. It was on the site back then, but didn’t see it with a search.
    You can put the bottom screws for the side bags in from the bottom up. That way when you take the bags off you only need to remove the top screws. I used a Dremel with cut off wheel to cut the screws to a length that they do not stick up into the bag. I saw a picture of a bag mount with no screws from bottom up and thought I would pass this along.

    You can but you need to do something on the stock bags to prevent the metal spacers from vibrating out of the rubber grommets. I put threaded studs in instead with removable pins. You can also use threaded knobs so you don’t have to have a tool.

      The only time I have trouble with the spacers coming out is when I take the bag off. I guess I got lucky.
