Saddlemen Sissy Bar Bag Installation Instructions
|Your Saddlemen Express Sissybar Bag is a universal-fit accessory bag that uses two straps to mount to your motorcycle's sissybar or backrest.|
Set the bag on the motorcycle so the location strap (1) fits snugly to the top of the sissybar (2). Wrap the wide mounting strap (3) around the sissybar so there is no play between the bag and the sissybar. Press firmly on the mounting strap to make sure the hook and loop fastener materials is engaged.
|Optional, Permanent Mounting|
| Harley-Davidson and other brand accessory sissybars have two- or three- holes and bolts in the back. You can use this same hole pattern to mount your Express Sissybar Bag, by simply drilling matching holes into the hard back of the sissybar bag (4).|
Carefully use a utility knife to cut the thread seams holding the mounting strap to the back of the bag. Remove the strap and nay thread remnants and then drill the holes in the required locations. Mount the bag using the sissybar’s original nuts and bolts (or obtain additional hardware from your motorcycle dealer).
|Securing Your Cargo|
|Use the included mini-padlock (5) to add additional security to your bag. Slip the lock’s hasp through the bag’s quarter turn latch or buckle to secure the flap.|
|IMPORTANT: Failure to install this accessory properly may allow portions of the bag or its mounting materials to contact the vehicle’s moving parts. It is vital that you verify that the accessory and/or any of its parts will not touch, or interfere with other components throughout the vehicle’s entire range of motion. DO NOT connect any straps to flexible or moving parts (items such as rubber mounted turn signals, swingarm or shock absorbers). Make sure that your bag does not touch the exhaust or other non-moving components, as well, as they may be damaged from contact with, or damage, the accessory. After 50 miles (80 kilometers), recheck all of the mounting straps and your bag to make sure they are still tight and secure. Inspect your bag and its related hardware before and during each ride. A loose bag or hardware can interfere with the vehicle’s operation and cause an unsafe riding condition.|

This mounts perfectly on my HD Fatboy sissy bar. Installs and removes in seconds. I do not have a luggage rack or bags so this is perfect to throw a few things in. Built well too.
Fits Harley fat bob medium sissy bar and mustang vintage pad perfect. very clean appearance. enough room for light jacket or vest, spare gloves and owners manual.
I 'm a dad puriest so had a hard time with putting bags on my 2005 Sportster 1200C and thought a sissy bag might help. I liked the looks and size of this bag, however, thought it looked a little goofy in the picture sitting high on the sissy bar. So, I called the Jafrum folks for some clarificaiton - they assured me it didn't have to be mounted like the picture so I ordered and couldn't be happier. Carries a quart of oil, some tools and space to run out and get some small supplies (wine bottle fits perfect) AND doesn't detract from the lines of the Sportster - doesn't hurt that the price was right too - nice work Jafrum!
