Comment: Bought these with the Saddlebags - SD4085 Studs and Saddlemen S4 Universal Saddlebag Support Brackets. Loved the bags and mounting brackets but there has to be a better quick connect system. They don't deem to be very sturdy.
Comment: I purchased a set of rigid mount bags which came with the quick mounts. In less that 18 months and less than 3000 miles the quick connect has begun coming apart. Also the snaps on the bags have pulled through the eylets on the poprivets.

Best Answer:I didn't need any special mounting hardware. I just had bag supports that fit my VStar 650. Threw the bags over the fender, tied them down to the supports and didn't have any issues with the bags staying in place.
Hey thanx a TON man. Ordered my bags on sunday ( i work midnights) ill post up a review of shipping time, quality, ease of installation and whatnot as i havent seen any reviews for any Triumphs and maybe it'll help somone. I opted to go with the s4 universal brackets as well to make sure they stay in place.
do i need both the s4 mounting brackets and quick disconnect kits like the video suggests even though im not planning on using these as a quick disconnect set uP? ( Mounting these on a 2013 Triumph T bird 1600
