How To Properly Measure Your Bike for Saddlebags

Although we provide a saddlebag fit chart for our deluxe throw-over saddlebags, our listing of which bags work well with various bikes comes from our customers' reports. The best way to tell if these saddlebags will fit your bike is to compare the saddlebag measurements to the available space on your bike. Just use these easy to follow instructions. Since all bikes are somewhat different, use the pictures as a reference only.

1. First, measure the horizontal distance from the edge of the rear turn signal to directly below where the rider's lower back aligns on the seat (see Measurement 1).

2. Next, measure the vertical distance from the exhaust pipe to approximately 3-inches below the top of the rear fender (see Measurement 2).

3. When comparing saddlebag dimensions to your bike's available space, remember that you'll need at least 1-inch clearance between the bottom of the bag and the exhaust pipe.
