PostSubject: Quick release saddlebag brackets ?   Wed Sep 03, 2014 6:15 pm

I have bought some cheap leather lookalike saddlebags, and want a quick release saddlebag bracket, because I dont like the look of the normal saddlebag mounts, when the bags are not mounted.

I have found the Easy Brackets and they look very nice and sturdy, but I cant find them anywhere but in USA.

Does anybody know of any alternatives, and perhaps a bit cheaper if possible ?

I use Saddlemans S4 Quick disconnect on my VZ800.  they can be used with their bags or with any rigid back bag.. not too pricy either.

Don't you still need the bag bars/mount when using the this system ?

Don't know how quick a system you want, but on mine I devised a system which means the bags can be removed in about 1 minute. And certainly cheaper than big quick release brackets.

I would only suggest this on a bag that locks...

Here's my write up from another part of this forum. Good luck whatever you decide.

Thx for the suggestions, but I don't want to have the support brackets on the bike when not using the bags.

So far I have still only found the Easy brackets and Edge brackets which only leave a small stud on the bike, when no bags are attached.

I will most likely order the Easy brackets version, as it look much sturdier being made of one piece of steel.

I ended up getting the Easy Brackets and they look to be a very good quality.

It took 5min to replace the studs on the rear fender, and I have not mounted the bags yet.

That looks really pukka! 5 minutes to change the fender bolts! They must have been on and off a good few times with your extensive redesign! They're often a right bastard....

Finally mounted the bags the the brackets, and now I'm all ready to go camping 

I made a 6mm plywood board painted black to go inside the bags to reinforce them.

Unfortunately I manage to break one of the keys in the mounting process, and I hope I can get an extra one made.
