Help - Fitting Universal brackets to a Virago for Saddle bag

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by bmacka67, Feb 1, 2008.

  1. All - I'm left handed...my excuse for never being able to fit anything without instructions!

    Just got set of saddle bags and also a universal luggage set of brackets..so question: How do I fit brackets? No instructions came with em! Did a search here but nothing came up.

    link here to see what they look like!

  2. Your link goes to a main Yam product & tool page.

    Are these the ones you got ?
  3. Re Virago brackets

    Yup them the 1's I got ;)
  4. Ok .... your brackets are a different shape to mine (custom ones to suit custom backrest & rails etc ) however I believe yours would most likely fit to the same areas, just check & see before you begin :wink:

    Basically use long bolts to the front where the grab rail starts & shorter bolts to the back on the rear mudguard, where the plug holes are/where.

    You will need a set of long bolts as the bolts previously fitted are not long enough to take both the bracket & rail.


    Hope that helps
