hi I bought saddleman cruiser bags for my 800 from metric cruisers. bolted them on. about 2.5 inches from the pipes been on for 6 months. noticed the other day the one on the pipe side had sagged on the bottom and stuck to the top pipe due to the heat. so now have a 2" burn on the bag and to ages to clean the pipe. is there a bag support I can get that supports the underneath of the bag from sagging

Could you not fix a solid base inside to stop them sagging? bit late now but a layer of aluminium ducting tape on the bottom would have reflected the heat of the exhausts away and protected the leatherette in the case of it still sagging.

I agree with Simbo,one way of doing it is to cut an old computer case to the shape you need,you can either rivet it to the base of your bag or zip tie it,or use a piece of plywood and either screw or zip tie it.

Happened to me back in the eighties on my Katana.  Got a piece of vinyl & glued it to a piece of ply that was cut to a tight fit.  Covered the hole & strengthened it enough to stop it sagging

Must agree with the others, strengthen up the bottom by putting a thin plate in. Even the apparently strongest & stiff leather will eventually bow.

I have used car engine panel heat reflective stick on panel to my offside bag but it still got hot enough to melt zip ties & plastic bags inside the bag!
I'll be raising the bags as far as I can when I get round to it probably next month?
