Very Spacious bags
These bags are great. They are very spacious. In one bag I can fit my riding jacket and pants. In the other fits my helmet. I ride a 2009 Yamaha FZ6r. The fitting was not perfect and I had to end up putting one strap under the seat and one above it in order for them to fit on with some security. Once I figured out what position they needed to be they fit great. I might add that my passenger seat is not connected to rider seat (most likely the reason for slight difficulty in attaching). Overall I would absolutely recommend these bags. They haven't been tested in the rain just yet. But I love the space they provide as well as the expandable zipper.

These Saddlebags are Very Versatile!
I have these Saddlebags and the matching Tail Bag. Please read my review of the Tail Bag, as it contains my comments on these great Saddlebags, as well!

Everything I expected...
A great, sturdy product with a nice finish. Lots of cargo space and not much more to say beyond that it's everything I wanted in luggage.

Excellent capacity and quality. Shoulder straps! Slightly awkawrd bungee straps.
These were practically the only saddlebag I found in their price range that had this kind of storage capacity. I bought them to replace some ~25 L bags that were simply too small for a big trip. I was very pleased with them.
Another big advantage over my old bags is that they have multiple pockets: there are extra pouches on the side that don't eat into the main compartment at all. Great for storing snacks, rain covers, tools, and other quick-access stuff.
They are expandable for when you don't need quite all that space, which is a nice feature (I'd have been fine simply having big bags, but hey, expandable is nice).
They come with shoulder straps, which is a huge plus. Pretty easy to carry one on each shoulder for a block or two.
My only complaint is the kind of weird bungee-based system for securing them to the bike. Other bags I've seen use little tie-on straps to tie onto the chassis, but these come with bungees that they want you to pass through the chassis. I found it a little awkward on my bike in particular. But once I figured it out, they were pretty secure on a 10 hour ride.
One other comment: they come with mysterious hard-plastic inside, and no instructions. I finally figured out that this plastic fits (with some effort) into the ribs of the bag and gives it a firm shape.

If you have a customer service or shipping question, please direct it to our Customer Service department.
I used them with an S1000RR BMW also with seperated seat; ran the back strap under the passenger "seat" and the front one simply laid directly behind the driver seat. I also used a non-slip pad to ensure the straps didnt rubb paint and ran a bungie between the bags under the rear fender to keep any flopping in the wind to a minimum. Rode from LA to Monterey and back (very swiftly at times) and didnt have a problem.
Only "complaint" I have with them is they arent top opening; access to main storage compartments requires losening the buckled straps and opening the zipper carefully to keep your stuff from falling out. I think I would have liked top opening models better.Aug 22, 2013
Anita L:I have a ZZR1200 with a Corbin 2 piece seat and Holeshot exhaust. The saddlebags work great with plenty of clearance over the exhaust. The bags are 17" wide and 13" tall and you need 10" for the straps over the seat ( 2 2" straps 6" apart). I also have the Onyx tailbag. They go on & off easily, the handles and shoulder straps make them easy to carry. I can carry all mine by myself, which my husband appreciates! The only minor complaint I have is the tailbag doesn't attach to the saddlebags. I would be happy to post a picture of them on my motorcycle if Revzilla allows. Aug 24, 2013
Ashlin H:Howdy. I own these bags and use them on my 2003 Suzuki SV1000 which has a separated passenger seat, much like the FZ6R I assume. Since they bags are connected together with adjustable velcro, I think they'll pretty much fit on anything. They worked great on my SV1000.Sep 16, 2013
Karl A:There is no provision to lock the zippers, however if you would obtain just the right sized lock with a small diameter hasp, it should be possible to latch together the 2 zipper actuators so that both would have to move together and the main compartment could not be accessed.
Meanwhile, if someone wanted to grab and run with your gear it would be easy unless you had a bicycle cable lock through the "D" rings and part of your frame.
I also use these bags when flying on trips, they are a handy size and hold a lot.
RevZilla:These saddlebags don't really call for a specific fit like other cases do. Since they just straddle the saddle (rhyme!), there's a wide range of bikes that they would fit on. The only thing to keep an eye out for would be where your exhaust is located. From what I know your exhaust cans fit nicely underneath the rear seat. These bags are heat resistant, but only to a point. Too much contact with hot pipes and WOOSH, your bags are on fire. Or probably something less dramatic, but still traumatic (another rhyme)!Jan 28, 2013
A shopper asked:I currently have saddle bags on my bike but the exhaust burned holes in the bottoms because the bags hang too low. Are these adjustable so they do not drop to the exhaust and will they be able to handle the heat on an hour ride?Jun 17, 2011
