Nelson-Rigg Sport 40 Saddle Bags 4.5 5 8 8
Effective Commuter Storage! I needed some external storage because I already carry a backpack with my laptop and work-related files and school books and I needed to carry cold-weather gear for the winter time. I initially was attaching a second backpack to the tank with a bungee net (functioning like a tank bag) but found that in inhibited my handlebar travel when performing tight turns. I decided to try a set of saddlebags to ensure I did not crash from a tank bag hitting my handlebars. I spent about a month researching the different saddlebags and found these from Nelson-Rigg.

Perfect for my purposes I bought these to use during my commute. I wasn't looking for anything huge since I have a rather small sportbike. These hardly take anything to install. I just removed the seat to put the velcro straps under. If I had any complaint though, it would be that they don't have a lock. August 7, 2015
Seem great for the price I'm reviewing before actual use. I put them on my 13 Street Triple very easily. They fit nice for what they are, nice size, easy to attach. Don't expect perfect fancy like hard cases. I dont plan and wouldn't keep them on unless actually need them for the day. I feel they would wear out quickly if over used but that's just my guess. I wouldn't really know. Maybe I'll re review after they've been used a lot. I like them though, and would recommend them. May 11, 2015
You get what you pay for. I can't afford hard bags. This is the alternative that I chose. I am happy with the performanse so far. I went ahead and ordered the water proof bags at the time of the purchase. No buyer's regret here. If only they made these in a color to match my tank. March 6, 2015
Small everyday bag These bags fit the bill for what I wanted, they are small and unobtrusive but have enough space to carry a few extra things like my lunch and a pair of gloves. Definitely not a bag for touring but large enough for everyday commuting. October 20, 2014
*Nice size bags* Great look* Good quality* I had a set of these about 5 bikes ago and loved them! With these new bikes having such narrow tails, the sport 40's are almost the perfect size. I had enough room for a change of clothes, toiletries, tools and whatever else I need. I just ordered another set for my 954rr I like them that much. Note* you can put the top strap underneath the rear seat instead of overtop (makes it comfortable for passengers) unless you have a banana boat seat like a CBR 600 f4 or f4i. It can be done but it is a pain to finagle the seat back on. Just a heads up! March 13, 2014
As advertised. Nice little bags that fit my daugthers CBR250R perfectly. Bags don't look bulky and are shaped to follow the tail section of the bike. October 21, 2013
Great for a solo rider's weekend The bags' holding capacity are a bit on the small side compared to the other ones in the Nelson-Rigg Sport line, but are still adequate to keep a few changes of clothes for a single person. The bags feel durable, strap down easily, and have a nice simplistic finish to them. They're wide enough to allow a dufflebag to be placed on top of them securely. Panels on the back side and the Nelson-Rigg logo are reflective to add some safety at night time. Only complaint is that the flaps are a bit stiff at the end, so the velcro doesn't always hold them closed, although the zippers to a well enough job of keeping dirt out. May 21, 2013

Michael H asked: Does this saddle bag hold ~10 liters per side, or is it ~10 liters for both sides combined? Sep 5, 2013

Arturo Alejandro S: 10.79 liters is 2.85 gallons PER bag... so... 5.701 gallons total.. great for short trips! Jul 25, 2014
German V: Each bag holds 10.79 liters, so the pair together holds about 21 liters total. Sep 25, 2013

Neil B: These bags are closer to 10l total Sep 27, 2013
Reply to Neil Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark B: Michael, It would be about 10 Liters for the bags combined. 10 liters is just over 2 US Gallons, so each bag is about the size of a standard gallon milk jug. The good thing about these bags is that they leave plenty of room for aftermarket exhaust, but can still hold as much gear as about 2 1/2 standard shoeboxes.

Hope this helps,

Ian M asked: Anyone know if you can get these on an '85 Nighthawk 650? Jul 3, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard P: I don't see why they wouldn't fit. These bags are adaptable. I have used mine on two different bikes. In looking at a photo of the Nighthawk it would seem to be a very straightforward fit. Throw them over the passenger seat and use the straps to attach them. Jul 4, 2015

Ian M: Awesome, thanks man. Jul 4, 2015
David M: The provided straps fit over rear seat or under rear seat with extra straps to control flopping around. Worked ok, eventually bought hard bags. Jul 7, 2015

alan d asked: Will these bags make it harder to lane split? They look like the can make the bike wider than the bar ends. Has anyone used these bags and made unintentional contact with a car? Jun 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David M: They add less than 7 inches per side, about an inch wider than your upper leg. Lane splitting shouldn't be a problem, if handlebars fit, the bags won't be the problem. Jun 15, 2014

David M: I have Yamaha FZ6R. I placed top straps underneath rear seat and clipped both fronts together and rear to rear reflector brackets. Looks good and I didn't had to modify any of the original product or bike. They add that little extra capacity that works out fine for me. Recommend if they're big enough! Jun 15, 2014
