As you can see from the pictures, if installed correctly, only the handle really sticks out past the rear pillion. The bag can easily fit with with any sissy bar (assuming the pillion is no shorter than stock). However, depending on the sissy bar mount, it may be tricky to get to the rear locking clasp, since it's located at the center of the bag.

tail bag

Did you look at the Harley XR1200 bag? I have one for my D and it fits like custom. with or without small sissy. Can't believe it wasn't made for the V.

Excellent write-up and pictures! I have been waiting to see the clearance between the bag and the fender. Just might have to get one of these soon.

FYI: The pictures posted earlier in this thread were hosted from my internet provider, which no longer offers that service. I tried uploading them to an alternate site, but it's too late to edit my earlier post, and repoint the links. So...

If you want to see the pictures, they're located in my gallery. The pictures are named simply "Bag1" through "Bag9" and are numbered in the order that they appeared in the earlier post. That should make it painless enough to match the picture to my earlier comments.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

On a side note, I've changed how I mount the bag, eliminating the large pad that used to remain when the bag was removed. All that remains now are the three straps holding the bag down. The front two (actually one strap, run under the pillion, and sticking out in two places) are easily stuffed under the seat, rendering them invisible. This leaves a small strap coming out the very back of the rear pillion, which I just loop around, stuffing the end back under the pillion, which leaves a small loop that's hardly noticeable. I did this by cutting the alternate straps provided (the ones with quick-release hooks). That gave me a longer strap for up front, since the one that originally went to the mounting pad was just a tiny bit too short to loop under the seat (as it was shown in the pictures) and still reach the bag's locking mechanism.

The back was even more ingenious (if I do say so myself). The original front strap (the one that was now too short) had a pair of d-rings, which was used to tighten the looped strap under the front seat. I cut that strap too, and removed one of the d-rings, leaving a short strap with one d-ring at the end. I placed the d-ring AROUND the pillion bolt, running the strap out the back. Thus, once the pillion is installed, that strap cannot be pulled off. It simply runs out the very back of the pillion, and attaches to the bag. Oh, and I taped up the d-ring with electrical tape to avoid rattling.

This method makes the bag a little tighter, so it doesn't wobble side to side nearly as much, but better yet, makes it much cleaner when removed, and comfortable for a passenger, since that hard pad is gone. The only drawback is that this pulls the bag down quite a bit, so it will rub the fender more than with the original installation.

The bag should fit a '12 DX, no problem. However, since the pillion is so much thinner, it's almost certainly going to rub the fender a bit more. It just really depends on how worried you are about the paint on your fender.

ORDERING! Perfection in a lowcost bag.

Second thought... I have a low-drag backpack I'll just keep that.

Recently got the bag, I'm going to place some foam between the bag and my fenders to prevent rubbing and use Velcro tape to make the foam easy to replace, ion case dust gets trapped between foam and fender. Will post pics mounted to a 12 dx when I get it all together.

Big thanks to jt3. Was looking for a bag for my DX (2012) and this post was perfect in helping me decide. Almost orderd TS1620 by mistake if it was not for clarification on this post. Appreciate the effort on the photos and descriptions.

Ordering bag today. Will buy some padding and if need be dye it balck so it doesnt look to obvious but still protects the fender.

Does anyone have pics of this on a 2012 VRSCDX? I was considering this for mine and I am confused on what size to get. Based on the pillon measurements, it sounds like I need the wide, but on here it sounds like folks went with the standard. If anyone has this on their 2012, please post some pics and give me your thoughts.
