Tweak it a bit
Bought to replace the too-small, too heavy hardbags on a Tiger 1050. I bent a 1/2" EMT conduit hoop to keep the bags out from under the seat and off the exhaust. That was cheap/fast/easy/functional BUT now I'm trying to figure out how to mount them independently with a little more security without spending $300 for a rack. A work in progress since they're on and functional. The size is great, the weight is good, the material is good the rain covers stayed on for a short ride at 60 mph. The "accessory strap" for the bottom should just be included, I used a piece of nylon webbing and some quick release snaplocks to the same effect. I'll end up using more webbing to create loops for attaching the bag to rack. Wrapping the rack with the closing straps (as seen in video) means the bag falls off or tips upside down every time you open it. No work at all if you're ok using the hook and loop strap, riding a cruiser or an ST with low exhaust.

Meeting my needs
Installing the inserts/stiffeners is not a job for one hand. They are easy to get on and off. Yoke under locking seat is secure. On my 08 Bergman left side has to be unclipped-not removed to gas up. No road trips -yet. Fit finish and quality look good. Uncovered is not water "proof". A little 3M may help. Like the protector pads.

great bags for the price!
I had hard saddlebags on my 2005 Yamaha FJR1300, one decided to leave me when I was riding in Pennsylvania and I didn't trust the other one to stay on after that incident, I knew I wanted bags..so I decided to try these, love them so much I bought the tail bag to go with them...now I'm set up for some day trips this season....I would tell someone to buy these bags if they are in the market for some

Check the clearance, then check it again....
These seemed like they would be a nice set of bags for hauling some stuff to work each day. Got them on Friday 4/4/14, installed them and they looked good. I thought that I had good clearance between the bags and my exhaust (one inch, per the included instructions). Rode to work the next night, about an hour on mostly interstate, and when I got there the heat shields had melted through and so had the bags. Lots of melted nylon stuck to my exhaust and stuff. Needless to say, I wasn't thrilled. Called Nelson-Rigg and they asked that I send them some pictures and my contact info. They looked at the photos and said I mounted them wrong (didn't have enough clearance) and basically told me to go pound sand. I was offered replacement heat shields and that was it. I passed since the shields hadn't really done much for me the first go round. Revzilla was a bit more generous, and while they said that the manufacturer had the final word on warranty, they would give me 20% off on a different set up of my choosing.
So, the moral of the story is if you get these, please make sure that you have more then enough clearance between the exhaust and the bag's heat shields. If the shields are too close to the exhaust at all, you are gonna have a real mess of melted nylon and a lighter wallet, because they won't be covered under the warranty.

Daryl R:No sir. Not real familiar with your bike, but if you google the Nelson-Rigg part number you'll find a PDF of the installation instructions. That should give you a good idea of what to look for on your bike. Hope that helps.May 12, 2014
Charles H:Though I am not specifically familiar with Wolfman racks, there are enough options available that I'm sure they will attach to almost any rack. Note that they have two large straps that lay over the seat. These provide the main support. Then there are several tie-off points on the lower part of the bags themselves. They are equipped with plastic snap buckles with the male part on the bag and females on straps that hook to the rack itself.Feb 3, 2014
