Better value than hard cases I'm just not willing to shell out a grand for hard cases. Thats really what it comes down to. I gave these soft bags a try, and they are great so far. December 15, 2014
Great product, but not 100% what I was expecting First off lemme say that the quality and durability of these bags is extremely good! Bought it for my '05 CBR600F4i. Fits nicely and still has plenty of room in between the bag and my exhaust, which of course keeps the bags from burning.... Now my one and only complaint: my bike has a banana seat instead of the split seat. I was hoping to install the bags with the strap placed underneath the seat instead of on top as shown in the pictures. Because of the design of my seat and where the locking mechanisms are set, I had to do some adjusting. Basically, I faced the bags the other way, and placed the skinnier strap under the seat while I kept the thicker one on top of the seat. Still fits nicely and is still secured to the bike. Thanks Revzilla! December 4, 2014
great bags these install very easy and quickly on my Honda CTX700N. December 1, 2014
2nd pair. Will be getting the tail bag soon I had an older version of these a while back that I sold when I sold that old bike and I loved them. They are durable and roomy. On a 2003 Kawasaki Ninja 250 the rear binkers are a bit in the way, but the saddle bags still set fine. Now I have a 2001 Concours and need a pair of bags to replace the hard bags on the bike. Fits better than on the ninja and hold up to some serious shaking around and triple digit speeds. I can fit a tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, and camelbak in this to make a weekend camping trip. November 10, 2014
Excellent bags, modular construction I LOVE these saddlebags. The cortech construction is very modular, with a huge zip out expansion on each side to accommodate short, or long-term packing options. The install was incredibly easy, and took no adjusting to fit on my bike. However the massive velcro straps would definitely be suitable to be expanded or contracted to fit other models. So far I have packed everything in here for a weekend getaway, to a 6-day tour, to a conference presentation ride. Also, for longer trips, they easily strap into the Cortech tailbag with no extra hassles. And, to top it all off, they look quite good on my SV650. No issues with rubbing on the finish after 2000 miles of riding. Solid padding! October 5, 2014
Exactly what I was looking for I'll start by saying that I've only taken these out on a couple of overnight trips, with some longer rides coming up soon so I'll try to update. Bags are well put together and really easy to install. My one gripe is that after riding for a while, the straps seem to loosen up a bit, but it hasnt caused any problems. With these, a tankbag and small backpack my lady and I can easy carry enough to get away for a few days. Conveniently also fits a 6pack in each side with room to spare for snacks. September 30, 2014
Sturdy set of universal bags Good quality and construction. Very adjustable so they actually fit up on the tail of a '14 GSX-750R. September 29, 2014
Sagging The bags are excellent! Only complaint is that the bags are starting to sag after 1 month of use. As in the bags are both moving closer to the wheel. Forgot to buckle the straps down on a 80 mile ride. Bags stayed in place. I'd give them credit for that. Holds a lot even with the covers that are included which some bags is separate.

Nicolas C: Wanted to start motocamping this summer and needed luggage. These have the most carrying capacity and come at a VERY affordable price. They're probably not as good as OEM hard cases, but they're definitely much cheaper and don't require an expensive bracket either. Just a quick note: The waterproof dust covers are NOT waterproof.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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)
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

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

Gerald G: I bought them for my son and his Kawi ZX6R and a weeklong trip we were doing together. I am not familiar with the attach points on your Rebel, but we were able to securely fasten the panniers and top bag to his bike. Plenty of straps are integrated with the bags and they did not shift. Overall quality of the bags is very good. Aug 12, 2013

Paul K: I have not tried these on a rebel, but I currently use them on my sportster and they work great. I'm a metal fabricator so I created a metal skeleton for the bags and a quick detach system so I can pop the bags off and bring them in. these bags are awesome, I would definitely get another set Aug 16, 2013

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!

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.

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.

Michael G: I would think so. I have a Kawi Versys and they didn't work on mine too well because of the passenger grab bars and raked angle of the seat. For cruisers that shouldn't be a problem. They come with plenty of velcro and pull straps to get them snug against your bike. Aug 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Has anyone used this on a GSX-R [recent years 2013 etc.] and been able to get them from "tilting inwards" at the bottom and wobbling back and forth too easily without adding a brace? May 5, 2014

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

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. Hope that help! Mat Nov 7, 2013

A shopper asked: Will these bags fit my Suzuki Gsx-R 600 (2011)? I have installed a "Two Brothers M-2 Vale" full system with a carbon fiber canister that emits minimal levels of heat. Personally, I'm tired of riding with back packs. would this pruduct be a wise buy? Oct 22, 2013

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.

RevZilla: While we have not test-fit these on a CBR1000RR with a passenger, generally saddlebags have a tendency to limit the passenger's foot position on the peg. We'll keep this question open so another CBR rider can chime in! May 10, 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?
