Gives our Street Glide A Nice Lowered Look. Perfect Color Match!
review by Steven Housden on 10/31/2016
I had already ordered the Charcoal Pearl speaker lids from this company Saddlebags Speaker Lids For Harley 2014 2015 2016 2017 Touring Models Hard Saddle Bags - Charcoal Pearl and was very pleased with the lids and the seller so I purchased the 4.5" stretched/extended bags from them also in charcoal pearl for our 2014 Street Glide FLHX. The bags are a perfect match to the Harley Charcoal Pearl paint that is stock on our bike. One of the biggest things that sold me on these was the Color Match. They offer a ton of stock colors for Harleys on these parts. Normally when you order body parts they come in Primer and you have to pay someone to paint..paint plus the painter plus the hassle of dropping and picking them up plus the wait....for the price of these I didnt have to wait but a few days and I had them on my bike...that is well worth it. The bags are identical to the stock bags other than the bottoms are extended 4.5" giving you more room in the bags but also giving the bike a dropped or lowered look. I have true dual exhaust and the bags wrapped around the pipes evenly for a perfect fit. They also offer a 2 into 1 set of bags for those of you have may have ran only one pipe out the back.
Installation was easy...take the parts off of your existing bags. 2 latch hooks(4 screws each) 2 rubber grommets for quick detach, 2 rubber vibration pads on the bottom, and the lid hardware (4 screws)........take it off of the old, put it on the new, put them on your bike. DONE. 15 minutes on the first bag, 10 on the second bag. Pretty easy stuff so dont worry....if you can turn a screwdriver you can put these on your bike.
The plastic is very strong, not flimsy like some others I have seen, Side by side with the old bags I couldn't feel a difference in the two parts as far as the rigidness of the bags. The charcoal pearl color matched paint is dead on with the bikes stock paint. Perfect paint job too..I went over these with a fine tooth comb and found nothing to complain about.
We rode about 200 miles yesterday with the new bags and I got a ton of compliments on the bags from other riders we were with. I had no issues with them to report..lids latch down tight and no vibrations...For the price I can say I am very happy with these. Just not having to hassle with getting parts painted is a huge plus for me.
An absolute easy 5 stars from me on these bags. The bag and speaker lid combo I have purchased from this company has completed the back of our street glide. Now on the front for some lowers.
