The Saddlemen Drifter Saddlebags with Shock Cutaway feature a clever design that will allow you to fit them over the shock absorbers on most bikes. These handsome, black bags measure 19.25”L x 12”H x 6.75”D. You can install these bags in one of three methods. You can choose to use its zip-off yoke for over-the-fender mounting.

Saddlemen Drifter Saddlebag Mounting Instructions
Measure distance horizontally from the edge of the rear turn signal to where the passenger would be aligned on the seat. Next, measure the distance vertically from the exhaust pipe to approximately two inches below the top of the rear fender.
*Please remember to allow at least one inch clearance between the bottom of the saddlebag and the exhaust pipe. This will prevent the saddlebag from being damaged by touching the exhaust pipe.
Visually align saddlebags to your bike (you make need a second pair of hands) to give a general idea of where bags should be placed. Attach your barrel bolts and washers to the bags and attach saddlebags to your bike with the fender bolts.
