I added pics to my journal, please go to page 2 for saddlebags pics. Please forgive my bad grammar. English is my second language.

no affense but if you didnt figure it out in 8 hours, you shouldnt be working on your bike. seat flips over, you pull the pin attached to the metal rope holding the seat. then theres one bolt to take off the front seat. then 2 bolts for the rear. take the 2 bolts off and pull the seat forward and out

Did you have to make any mods to get the 260 to fit?

No offense but you shouldn't attack someone like that... And again no offense but forums are about helping each other and after paying 16,000 for something I'm not going to risk breaking it on a whim. Thanks for your response though.

VRSC bags

I have a pair of VRSC bags (were on a 2006 VRSCA). I wonder if they fit on the proper VRSCDX hardware mount...

I took off my 2009 AW bags and mounting hardware before I traded in my bike. They do not fit the 12 DX. I know they will fit the DX with 240 wide tires. I think they started making those in 07 or 08 to 11.

I have identical saddlebags on my DX. Not big by any means but enough for some tools, and even an under armour top if it chills off. Goggle case with spare lenses etc etc



Before those, I used to shove crap in between the back of the headlight shroud and the bars.

Seriously though, get the manual and have fun with your mods!

V-Mod Saddlebags for 2012 VRSCDX

I must have spent the better part of 8 hours googling, and looking at bike and I am at a loss. Also as far as aftermarket saddlebags what do you all suggest? I have a set I picked up I think I like.. just cant get them on right. And I love the Harley ones but $700 OUCH.

TIA
These saddlebags look very nice (IMHO). I'm still looking but these are at the top of my list.

Looking for suggestions or maybe options other than harleys
This a "Leatherworks Solo Bag" (Good Bag) it has like a clear coat on the back side. I don't think it rubs to much.

Thanks,
Rod
