Cortech Super 2.0 Saddlebags 4.3 5 56 56
New bags I put these on my Honda Phantom. I was worried on how they would look. I think they look great. Nice to finally not have to wear a back pack. Plenty of room for most of my stuff. I don't think my riding coat can fit, but I have not tried yet either. If it gets warm, I want to ditch the jacket. I bought the 10L tail bag to go with it, to balance the look. Awesome combo. My only regret is I should have gone with the 24L tail bag, maybe. The saddle bags are heavy duty quality. They should last a long time. I don't ride in the rain, so that should make them last even longer. Hopefully the UV rays don't weather them too much. I like the fact they are expandable too. A little more wiggle-room for some larger items. For the price, these things really can't be beat. An awesome look, and the reflective piping makes me even more visible than ever. The picture attached is the initial fit, nothing really locked down and it's in a bad position and lighting. I do like the looks of it on my cruiser. I wanted to attach it because I only ever saw sport bikes with these bags. So I thought maybe other cruiser guys might want to see what they would look like... October 12, 2015
Turned my CBR into a decent commuter. I commute 50 miles round trip almost everyday on my CBR250R. The previous owner sold me the bike with Cortech's Super 2.0 Tailbag which I liked but could only really fit my lunch bag, office shoes, and a few other small items. I needed a place to stuff my rain gear and read that these saddlebags were designed to link up with the tailbag. So I went ahead and purchased them... The good... They are pretty roomy. I can easily stuff my rain jacket and pants, rubber overboots, waterproof gloves, and bike cover in them and that is without expanding them. They are somewhat water resistant in very light rain. You need the included waterproof covers for anything heavier but the covers work well. They look good once I added some saddlebag supports (see below). The tailbag & saddlebag setup works well. When I get to work, I unclip the tailbag and take it with me. The saddlebags stay put. Once initially installed, they are fairly easy to remove if you need to take them with you though. The not so good... They really need to be a couple of inches deeper or made more rectangular to be really effective for a commuter. I can't manage to fit a binder or a decent sized laptop in the saddlebags. There is not much security since they are simply strapped to the bike and have simple zippered pockets. If you leave your bike out in the elements, you need to remember to install the waterproof covers if rain is in the forecast. Otherwise you will come back to soggy bags and possibly wet contents. When I first installed them on my bike, the bottoms of the bags really tilted inwards towards the rear tire. I rode that way for a few weeks and never noticed any contact with the tire. However, it looked pretty sad. I managed to find some saddlebag supports for my bike that work great. Now the bags look like they were designed for the bike. Overall they work decently for my purposes. They are no substitute for hard cases but they are also much less expensive. September 25, 2015
Buy these bags! I highly recommend these saddlebags. I use them on my 2001 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R. I have to turn them around backwards so as to clear the exhaust, but I still like the way they look even being on the bike backwards and there is plenty of room between the bottom of the bag and the exhaust. I also purchased the tail bag to go with the saddlebags and all together, they make a really nice set. I made a ride down to the Texas hill country with a couple of my friends and was able to carry everything I needed. We got rained on during the trip, but using the included rain covers, my bags and everything inside them stayed perfectly dry. September 15, 2015
Melted away by the exhausts, Diavel Was excited to get these saddlebags as they were reviewed well. Turns out my bike exhaust was to close to it. I had used it once on a 100 mile trip. Went home and found out there was a hole on the bottom. I would not recommend it for a diavel or any bike whose exhaust is anywhere close to where the saddlebag rests. September 14, 2015
They fit nicely on a 1997 CBR I bought these after buying groceries and discovered carrying everything in my pack was a pain. I looked everywhere where for saddlebags but couldn't find one's that looked nice and felt good. I work at shop and I just started so I come and go with some of my tools and this does the job nicely I'm still getting used to having them on the bike but I'm getting confident that they will hold. August 29, 2015
Worth saving for something better. I bought these bags in preparation for a big trip and have been using them around town and for weekend trips. I don't like the way they fit on my bike. The way they rest, they become concave which eats up a lot of the storage space. Their one day in the rain with the rain covers on I ended up with water in the bottom of the bags after about an hour of showers. If I had the chance, I would sell these and buy hard cases instead. August 17, 2015
Excellent bags Using daily for home to work commute and they have stayed on well. Look great on my bike. Yet to try them on longer rides and rain. August 16, 2015
Already falling apart Bought these for my cross Canada trip. That was 1.5 month ago, and it was no longer than 4 weeks before they started to fall apart. I did not buy it through revzilla, and I wish I'd save my proof of purchase. It is an easy process to put these bags on the motorcycle, yes. BUT, raincovers are not that easy to put on in the *right* way. After couple of days in the rain, these covers would start flaking off from the inside (like these old cheap backpacks usually did), therefore not providing much of the protection. After two weeks, the elastic straps holding the cover on the bag ripped off somehow (during the ride), so the cover flew away, and I did not notice that before the end of a day, when I finally stopped. The zippers.. poor quality! Right now (after 1.5month) one of them is practically unusable. Ballistic nylon.. well.. the fabric started to stretch,and separate it's threads around the zipper after like 3 weeks. Then it became so weak, that part of the zipper would separate itself from the fabric. I'll try to provide pics later. The shape of the bags.. the way the bags are shaped makes them hard to use for anything than work commuting. You have literally no chance to stuff all these things you'll need for 1+month journey. I ended up using my old 55liter backpack as my main 'stuff container', and used these bags mostly for carrying fuel canister (1.24 gallon fits well), tools, chain lube. Overally I cannot overstate how *unsatisfied* I am with these bags, and I certainly discourage you from buying them. August 3, 2015

Wayne J asked: How can these bags be 36 liters per bag? 16.9" x 10.2" x 6.7" works out to about 22 liters, assuming it is rectangular, which it isn't, so it's actually something less than 22 liters. Even the expanded size would be only 30 liters if rectangular. How do they get by saying they are 36 liters each? Revzilla guys? Nov 15, 2013

Alan B: I have a 2013 Ninja 650 and recently purchased the Cortech Super 2.0 saddlebags and tailbag. They're great bags, plenty of room, expandable and look great on the bike. The only thing I found is that you may have to do a little trial and error when mounting them. I had them on initially for a few days but they didn't seem to sit quite right. I took them off, looked at all of the different places to latch them to, and the second time around they sit better and are attached more strongly to the bike. Good luck! Oct 31, 2013

Daniel L: They are flexible they have a big huge Velcro strap so you could probably put them on the back of a Harley Davidson I use mine for a Honda VFR 800 and I've been using them for the last 10 years and I used two different styles of them I think they're one of the best product out there is other than OEM hard saddlebags Jun 26, 2015

A shopper asked: Hi there, guys!

I have a quick question regarding fitting the saddlebags on my bike. I have Ducati Hypermotard 1100S which has two undertail mufflers with side carbon covers to the left and right of the passenger seat. How should I put these saddlebags on? I fear that there will be a lot of downwards pressure from the bags which will be transferred to my carbon muffler covers from the sides.

Yancey W: I have the Cortech bags and am very satisfied. I used them on 2 long trips (2000+ miles) this year and last. When expanded, they hold a considerable amount of gear and are easy on/off. I also like the side pockets for items I access frequently and discovered the rain protecters work well. I ride an SV650s and would definitely recommend these bags. Sep 12, 2013

Branden D: Not sure how they do on the street, but the won't make 200 miles loaded with gear on the back of a dirt bike before they split at the seams.

Peter L: Based on the way the rear of your bike is designed with no real good way to secure the bags properly ( lack of side braces ) i would first try to find someone that has already put bags on there Duke 200. I'm sure all 3 bags are of good quility. Maybe try a Tail Bag. Good luck Sep 11, 2013

chris y asked: Do these bags require a side mount/bracket system of any kind to keep them stable?

I am trying to decide between these and another brand which does require a side pannier.
Feb 4, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nigel S: No - mounts/brackets are not required. The span of the bags over the seat is adjustable (wide velcro straps). The front of each bag has a strap with a loop to go around passenger foot pegs (or somewhere on the rear frame). The rear of each bag connects together, laterally. The strap can be run behind the license plate or another convenient location. What you do need to be sure of is that there are no rear turn signals etc. that may interfere with the location of the bags. They worked well on my BMW R75/5, but can't be fitted to my R nineT, because of the turn signals. Feb 4, 2015
Reply to Nigel Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Domenick M: Does not require side hard mounting system. Do need to secure to frame. Bags have straps with clips that can be used to secure to bike. Feb 4, 2015
Reply to Domenick Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Daniel R: No...I have ridden several times with these bags on a 99 ZRX and they hold up well. I have ridden with them both fully expanded and in their normal configuration (not expanded) and they are stable. I don't ride with them on every day, I probably have about 750 miles on them and they still look brand new. Hope this helps with your decision. Feb 4, 2015
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Andreas L: Depends on the side of the left and right panels. I can't see your bike details. In a CBR1000RR '04 no problem. Special care for the exhaust needed of course and for the speed/wind effects. Also depends on the weight you will load and the volume. With a belt conecting the bottom sides (passing over the seat) You should be fine. Feb 5, 2015
Reply to Andreas Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel L: No brackets needed they strapped right to the bike and they do a beautifully I use mine on a Honda VFR 800 The front strap come down and you can strap it to any port in a little frame or the rear foot pegs of the passenger something like that you're very sturdy and I've written across the desert at high speeds Jun 26, 2015
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Marc R: I think it depends on how well the bag is supported by the side of the seat/tail. There are straps front and rear, so if you have good attachment points you are probably going to be OK. I put mine on an Aprilia Tuono with no problem. Feb 4, 2015
Reply to Marc Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
michael t: The way the existing mounting system is, with the nylon webbing loops and buckles, worked just fine on my CBR. The way the tail end of most bikes is constructed keeps the bags stable. Feb 4, 2015

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael H: I would say yes...they are universal and have adjustable velcro straps over the seat and adjustable snap-straps that attach to the frame, etc. Aug 12, 2013
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Nigel S: Gerald - I've no personal experience with Rebel, but looking at a pic of the bike I'd have to say no - these saddlebags won't fit well. You need 10 inches of level seat surface for the cross webbing (between the bags) to sit on. The top "shoulder" of each bag, that lips over the edge of the seat are 17 inches long. Given the Rebel's seat is sculpted at the back, and the pillion seat is set "high" and also sculpted, I don't think these saddlebags will mount level for you. Also, you need to hook each side straps around each pillion footpeg. The rear strap goes somewhere near (underneath) your license plate or tail light. The geometry on the Rebel doesn't look good to me for mounting the straps.
Hope this helps. Nigel

Paul K: I have not tried these on a rebel, but I currently use them on my sportster and they work great.

David M: Maybe? They're likely cover your tail light a little bit. I'd look at the length dimension, as your rear seat is not that long. The attachments are loops for the frame (meaning it can attach to anything sturdy).

I'd say likely yes, but you might look at pictures of typical saddlebags for the rebel. Most I've see are more cruiser style bags.

F R: Im sorry, but i am not familiar with that motorcycle.
I can say i bought it for a BMW Rockster and did not have an issue with my muffler, which is on the left side of the bike. I do keep on the rear seat pad to raise it up more and givea bit more clearance. I can also install them on my GSXR 600 as well. I do the same thing, purposefully keep seat pad on it & i fold up a small towel to give even more clearance for the exhaust. IMHO, Money well spent, NO DOUBT! Good Luck... keep the rubber side down & shiny side up

I've seen all the videos...but I'm concerned about them rubbing on the rear tires. Will they fit ok? My rear seat looks a lot smaller than all the install video bikes I see online. Oct 8, 2014

Alan B: Russ, I had a 2013 Ninja 650 ABS and these bags were great, as was the matching tail bag. There's plenty of space between the bags and the tire on the Ninja, just make sure you adjust the velcro straps so that the bags are straight up and down, and not leaning in, especially when you put stuff in them. I connected the adjustable straps to the passenger peg bracket and under the tail light and the bags never moved. Good luck and ride safe! Oct 9, 2014

Matthew G: I have a Honda CBR 500R and had no problem with rubbing on my tire and our bikes are very similar in size. That being said, the Velcro can be adjusted between the two saddlebags on top of the rear seat so the bottoms flair out more. I took mine 2500 miles last year all in the mountains and they never moved or rubbed the entire trip. Oct 8, 2014

Albert F: Hello,

I have a 2009 Ninja 650 and these bags work well. I regularly carry an IPad in them but my laptop 15"X10" does not fit. A smaller 12" laptop would prolly fit.

David S: I'm not sure these bags would work with a passenger. The bags mount quite high and the straps go right over the passenger seat which might be uncomfortable for the passenger. I have no experience with a passenger but it's just my observation. Dec 9, 2013

Seth B: I ride a Ninja 650R and these bags, unfortunately, sit above the passenger pegs, so a rider wouldn't be able to sit. But the bags come off in literally seconds if you wanted to take them off temporarily then put them back on. Dec 9, 2013

A shopper asked: Will the bags fit the new KTM 1290 Super Duke? The KTM powerpart bags require the removal of the tail section side covers that protrude out from beneath the seat. Will the removal of the side covers also be necccesary for the cortech bags to protect from scuffing the paint or proper fitment?

Also wil the exhaust clearance be a concern?

Cory C: These bags are super versatile.
You probably will have to remove the side covers.
Endless you don't care about paint scuff or proper fitment.
I have these on a 79 BMW R90/6 they don't fit properly.
I make them fit. I use a tarp underneath the velcro between the two bags
to raise them far above my pipes. I have had them rubbing and a hole did burn through. For the amount of liters these hold and for the price you cant beat them!

Todd D: I don't believe they would be a problem at all. They are set up to attach by the rear foot pegs and with a loop around the license plate bracket. With your muffler being in the center as long as it's not un-protected you should have no problem. I have a 2009 ZX-14 and really like the bags ( Don't over fill them ). They hold great at speed full or empty, they are a great accessory to have. Mar 4, 2015

Leon K asked: I am very interested in purchasing these bags for my 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 500r. My main concern is fitting these far back enough to be able to ride two-up. My girl and I like taking trips together and need extra space for long trips. I know these are passenger friendly on Ninja 650r's but is there any way to mount back behind the passenger pegs? Also, what is the exact storage per bag? Thank you in advance Nov 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A S: Leon, I don't know if this will help you or not, but I'll try. On my Ninja 650r, I have both the saddlebags and the tail bag, so obviously no passenger can ride. The straps that hold the saddlebags go to my passenger footpegs. There is also a strap that goes under the seat towards the rear to hold the back of the bags. With the 500r, I think you should be able to slid them far enough back to run the rear strap under the tail. As long as you have something to tie the front of the bags off to, you should have plenty of room for a passenger. The two straps that cross over the top of the seat have neoprene that really helps the bags to "stick" to the motorcycle. As far as exact storage: They say each bag holds 36 liters. But what the heck is 36 liters? I can tell you that in ONE bag I have the rain covers for all three bags, my rain gear, sweatshirt, long sleeved shirt, and winter gloves, and have some room to spare. As a side note, I love these bags. I say buy them and play around to get them mounted. If you have any trouble, Revzilla's customer service is outstanding. And if you need to return them, no problem.

M. Ross L: Technically you can mount them as far back on the seat as you want. When you are riding 2-up, the passenger is keeping the bags in place so the strap for the passenger pegs are just to stabilize them from flopping around. When I'm riding alone, I mount them closer to the front of the bike and pull the peg straps tighter. Storage seems to be correct at 13L for each bag. I used to ride 32L backpack and can fit a bit more with these. Nov 5, 2014

A shopper asked: Hey guys, i can´t see any difference between this and the contoured one (other than the shape and the price). Do you think both of them will fit with a BMW S1000R 2015?? Must I choose the contoured one?? or this 2.0 will be enough?? Thanks in advance for your comments. Oct 7, 2014

Anthony F: Hey, I am sorry I don't know the difference between the 2.0 and the contoured one. I can tell you that the 2.0 was adequate and stayed in place from Fort Lauderdale to Daytona at speeds of 80-90mph. Plenty of tie down supplied to customize to your bike. Very nice, would recommend for light garments.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jennifer L: I have a 2009 GSX-R600 and used these bags with the tail bag for a 6-day road trip summer of 2013. Yes, they tilted inward just a bit, but it didn't cause any trouble. I even rode some twisties with them although I wasn't excessively aggressive in the turns. I didn't experience any wobbling problems. I filled them completely so there wasn't much room for the internal support panels to be pushed inward. I also kept the top straps tight so they couldn't hang too low, just loose enough so they hung vertical when full. May 6, 2014

revzillacraig: The one I purchased had two separate lame elastic straps that one had to feed under the seat and the straps had hooks at each end that hooked onto loops on each side of the pad near the front and back. The tightening adjuster with the skinny elastic was difficult to use. I did not take the seat off to install the pad, I just fished the elastic underneath the seat, and also did the tightening adjustment in place. If you take your seat off, then the cheap skinny elastic does not get any better, but using it will be easier. I want to be able to take my pad on and off at my convenience and this system is not made to accommodate that intention. It is just a cheap connector, which is not consistent with the seemingly high quality of the rest of the product. Sep 18, 2012

Daniel L: In my opinion these are the best soft four bags out there I use them on my Honda VFR 800. They are sturdy incredibly well made Adjustable as far as how wide or big your backseat is that has to go over the FJ is probably a little bit bigger than the VFR. Coupled with the matching top bag that can go with them and will clip to it other than OEM luggage I personally think they're the best I've been using them for years and I just bought my second set because my other set like I said have been using them for years and I've toured from Florida to California Florida to Canada etc. etc. i'm sure there are other soft luggage out there that are of good quality I just happen to be a quartet van and I've been very pleased and still am Again the matching top bag couples with the side bag and makes a beautiful looking piece of equipment Jun 26, 2015

A shopper asked: I'm trying to decide on some soft panniers for a 2009 Triumph Street Triple 675? The bike has dual high mounted exhausts (stock). I will be flying in to pick up the bike and riding it home so I will not have the opportunity to try them and sending them back if they don't fit. I would think the exhausts would hinder using soft side bags unless I used some sort of rack to keep them away from the exhausts. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Apr 17, 2014

Richard S: After looking at your sweet bike on line, I would say that these bags will not work too well for you. I have them on my Ninja 1000 and the dual side exhaust is low enough that then barely touch the pipes. These bags have some heat resistant layers on bottom and inside lower portion. However, it appears your pipes will sit squarely against the bag where there is no protection. It's too bad they won't work, they are very cool for sport bikes. Good luck. Apr 25, 2014

Joseph F asked: I have the original top bag from cortech. I had to throw the original saddlebags away because due to my high speeds they slipped off onto my exhaust and melted. Do the new cortech 2.0 saddle bags work with the first gen top bag. Do the buckles line up and fit? Nov 6, 2013

MAT R: . I bought my bike and the previous owner threw in an older coretech tailbag. So I went with the 2.0 not knowing there was a new and old version. But yes, the buckles fit perfectly. I have been keeping the tail bag on the rack and the saddle bags toward the back of the seat, so they arent connected to eachother. I have found that by the time the saddle bags are mounted they are so far apart that the buckles on the tail bag barely reach. I have seem some strap extensions that I might get for a few bucks that may allow for more options if the need arises. Other than that, the tail bag is faded and the new saddlebags are still black.

Daniel S: they will fit most any bike, the question is do you have sufficient clearance with the muffler. In my case I have a VFR with these bags and an aftermarket can, the distance from the top of muffler (at the highest point) to the top of the rear seat is 15" and i have plenty of room/clearance. You can let these bags ride higher or lower by how much you close up/overlap the velcro attachment that goes over the seat. These bags are also angled up at the back to help clear the upswept muffler. A friend also has these on a different bike with no clearance problems, they seem to be a good guality product.
