PostSubject: Sissy bar & panniers refix / Suzuki Intruder   Sissy bar & panniers refix / Suzuki Intruder Icon_minitimeFri Jan 04, 2013 4:53 pm

Recently a forum member asked how I'd fitted my panniers and sissy bar to the bike, all I'd done was used longer ss dome head allen bolts and bolted through both brackets and put washers in between as spacers, Not only was this an ugly quick fix, It also made the panniers a permanent fixed to the bike as it took ages to remove them ! So today I set about fixing the Sissy bar and Panniers in a more decorative removable way, First of all I had to remove the Panniers from their brackets to gain access to the bolts,then I removed the bolts going through the Sissy Bar,brackets and mudguard, Using the same bolts I screwed them through from within the mudguard (the one nearer the front has a nut welded on the inside of the mudguard) Then tightened them back up using a ss half nut and washer to hold the Sissy bar and mudguard together.(this also acts as a spacer)

Doing it this way enables me to leave the Panniers and Brackets fixed together

So now I can remove or replace the Panniers within five minutes (4 nuts) instead of a good half hour,I don't often go without them but if I do I can just put the spiked chrome nut's on without panniers and it still looks ok.

Great idea change the bolts over and put them in from the inside instead of running from the outside simbo. Makes life so much easier as they are bastards to get in and out everytime when you put thing on or take things of other wise Sissy bar & panniers refix / Suzuki Intruder 184121345

Good move Sim, I think I will do this myself.
I sometimes think about stripping the bike down a bit and taking off the sissy bar & rear seat but the thought of having to take those bolts out and put them back in more than once has stopped me from doing it as they are twats to get back in. Sissy bar & panniers refix / Suzuki Intruder 3498837457

A good idea is to open the front two holes up,these are the ones that have the nuts welded on the inside,just a send a drill through a little bigger than the bolt, this will save a lot of hassle,when trying to thread a 80/100 mm bolt from the inside.

Another very clever idea.... do you mean just open up the holes in the metalwork - not drilling through the welded nut too? I'm storing these tips up for when I get round to fitting my sissy bar. Sissy bar & panniers refix / Suzuki Intruder 3498837457

You must go through the nut to take advantage of being able to just push the bolt through,instead of spending time with the rear wheel on trying to screw it in.I done this mod months ago and find it much easier,I must admit that I do also take my rear mudgaurd off now and again to clean it from the inside as well.
