Best Answer:I have a HD iron 883, they have an original HD bag on their website. I went to the installation guide listed on the site and looked at where I could attach it. I had to use tarp bungi cords to attach it to my bike. I found the straps that come with this bag hard to tighten and work with in confined spaces.
The SA2011 and 2012 bags are designed for use on rigid customs and
monoshock swingarm designs like those found on Harley Softails and Yamaha
V-stars. At eleven inches tall, the 2011 bag is a little bit smaller than the
2012 bag at fourteen inches tall. The 2011 bag is designed to be mounted to the
right side of the bike and the 2012 mounts to the left. The right side setup of
the 2011 will only work on a small amount of custom motorcycles, or motorcycles
with street sweeper exhausts that leave the right side of the swingarm exposed.
For the rest of you, with exhaust on the right side of the bike, covering the
right side of the swingarm, the 2012 bag is the right choice. The 2012 is
designed to be mounted to the left side of the swingarm which is unobstructed on
almost all models. Mounting is very easy. There are four straps on the back with
double d-rings so the bag installs and uninstalls in a snap. This bag also
includes a shoulder strap that makes carrying the bag easy, for those of you
that think the beating is worth it. These swingarm bags are made of a sturdy
manmade material that is UV and water resistant and the main closures are
comprised of quick release buckles that are hidden beneath these classic looking
