"Best bags on the market for the money!!!!!"
"bought for c50-on for a week-look decent-price was right-would recommend-did have bag supports."
"NICE BAGS FOR THE $. SHIPPING WAS REALLY FAST. XTREMILY SATISFIED"
"NICE!! I put them on my 08 vstar 1100 custom and they are perfect. I had to punch a few holes to mke them sit high enough but that was a two minute job. they look sweet!!!!! Oh yea, I ordered them on Tuesday after 5PM and had them installed by 10 AM Thursday. Super fast shipping."
These bags fit great.They could not be any bigger and fit a V Star 1300 in my opinion.They are everything that the description says and more.Frankly I was surprised at the quality of theses bags.I have stuffed them with my leathers,rain gear and even several bottles of water and they still snap and buckle with no issues.I did permanant mount them to the guards I have because I did not like the strings being tied to the guards as the way to secure them.I was not interested in taking them on and off,so I can not comment on how easy or difficult they would be to remove or put back on.These bags are well worth the money.
Love this site, placed order on a Wed. and had product on Sat. of same week. They fit like a glove. Have had several friends, see bags , now going to site to order theirs. will be buying other items soon.
The saddlebags arrived a couple of days after I ordered them and were just as advertised. Good size bags, nice looking, and easy to install. I did not have to add extra holes to the yoke as some reviewers did. I installed Yamaha saddlebag support brackets which help. Naturally, it's a little tricky tying the bags to the support brackets since the ties are on the back side of the bags. I love the video reviews on Jafrum's website and Louie is correct, the small padlocks will scratch the paint on your fender if you don't position them just right. Have not been rained on yet, so I can't attest to how waterproof these bags are. No complaints and I will buy from Jafrum again.
bags are very nice hard sided with heat resistant fabric on the bottom. Leather like material is actually leather like some pvc bags I've purchased before from other places are hard these are very soft and plyable. Size is great maximizes the potential for saddlebags on my 2012 750 spirit
Received these bags as an x-mas present. Needed to make a small adjustment to sit higher off the exhaust. Look durable and fills out the back of the bike nicely. Cant wait to put on some miles with them.
I am amazed at the quality and looks of these bags. They fit perfect on my 09 vtx1300r. I bought some velcroe straps to hold the bags down because I didnt ike the shoe strings they came with. You will NOT be dissatsfied with these bags. Well worth the money.
These bags look sharp on my 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750DC. Maximum size for my bike. The strap is too thick to go under my seat, so I suggest mounting brackets. To find a better set of bags you will have to add a zero to the end of the price.
This product is an incredible bargain! Ordered on Monday and had them on Wednesday! Absolutely the best deal anywhere. I'm a new customer and will be for life with quality and prices like this. Jafrum.com rocks! 2007 Honda Spirit VT750C2
These saddlebags look great and I am please with this product. I did mount them using the Ghost Brackets.
Bags fit well. They could not be any larger. I had to add more holes to adjust height and keep them off the exhaust. Great quality for the price. I'd buy them again.
I bought these saddlebags for my 2007 V-Star 650 classic. I had to modify the yoke with some additional holes so that they were far enough away from the pipes, but other than that they are great.
I read the reviews before I bought these bags and everyone said how surprised they were of the quality. So I was expecting some really nice bags and they still exceeded what I thought they would be. Very sturdy with the back being a layer of plastic I was able to cut of the straps and mount them to a bracket to fit on my 02 fatboy. They fit perfect and really nice quality.
All the reviews I read about these bags were all positive so I bought a set. The bags were as nice as was said on the reviews. The bags fit my VTX perfectly. For the money you won't find a nicer set of bags.
I just bought these bags for my Honda. They look great on my bike. They are a nice size bag. For the money I'm really pleased with them.
I just received my saddle bags by Fedex and I really like these bags they fit exactly like I hoped. I would definately buy from these Jafrum again.
These Saddlebags are constructed using a leather-like PVC material and are available in a plain or a studded version. Each version has a separate listing on our site so be sure the item you wish to purchase is the item pictured in the listing. These are a large sized bag and measure 18.25 x 7.5 x 10.5 inches. They are perfect for large cruisers and work on many medium sized bikes as well, although some customers had to relocate their turn signals. These bags are designed to be used as either a throw over style, or a rigid mounted bag. To mount using the throw over method, simply remove your one piece seat or the passenger half of your two-piece seat and lay the yoke of the bags over the rear fender. Adjust the yoke to ensure that the bags do not touch your exhaust system. There is a layer of heat resistant fabric that has been added to the bottom of the bag which keeps the bag from melting but exhaust clearance is still needed to protect the bag's contents. In the reviews, some customers have indicated that extra holes were needed in the yoke to get the height of the bags perfect, but that adding the holes was easy. We also recommend using a saddlebag support system like saddlebag bracket A, to make sure your bags don't sag or get pulled into the wheel. Once you have reinstalled your seat, you can secure the bags to the supports using these tiedowns. To eliminate the yoke for bolt on mounting, you will need to purchase a rigid style mounting system. The back of these bags are constructed using a rigid plastic offering a variety of mounting options. These SD4068 bags are easily removed for security and convenience. Lifting this hook and loop flap exposes a zipper for easy removal, and these grommeted holes allow the bags to be locked to the yoke as a light theft deterrent. Use caution when using these locks while riding to make sure they aren't touching the paint. The carry handles are on the inside edge of the bag instead in the middle of the lid. This allows the handles to be tucked away out of site, giving the bags a cleaner look, and also makes it possible to carry both bags with one hand. The bags are held closed by these hidden, lockable quick release buckles, and a snap on the front and rear of the lid. Opening the bag exposes a flap that is designed to help keep water and dirt out of your luggage. Inside the bag, there are two low profile perimeter pockets and the semi rigid panels that help the bags keep their shape.
To answer your question about fitting,,,,I cut off the throw over straps right at the bag & hard mounted the bags myself. I knew at time of purchase this was the way I was going to go. However, I did attempt to first try the throw over style but quickly found I had the same issues as you, so I went with my original idea of hard mounting. You might want to consider doing a hard mount, if you still want them to be removiable I would suggest purchasing a quick release hardmount system.
For the Height: Measure from the top of the fender to two inches above you exhaust.
For the length: Measure between the back of the taillights and the back of the driver seat.
This should give you the size of the bags you can order.
They fit my 1983 Virago 920 perfectly. There is plenty of adjustment to play with.
I hope this helps you.
