Thanks for the compliments guys...

Getting the bags to sit just right took a couple of trials, and about 5 cereal boxes...
I mocked them up by placing them on jack-stands and 5 gallon buckets to get the height, then as far as spacing I wanted them as close to the bike as I could get them...
You can't put them ANY closer unless you were to use a different type of hinge. The way the side mounted clam shell hinge works is on an arc meaning the inside front and rear of the bags get closer to the bike as they are opened...
Any closer and they would drag on the front and back edges when opening or closing.

Pics of one of the original mock ups.

The brackets are just flat stock with some simple bends. I made a template for the (side wall) part closest to the sub frame and the entire bottom of each bag.

The rear fender on the Silverado must not be as wide as the one on the warrior. There is some wasted space cut out of the left bag (from the factory) to give clearance for the rear sprocket, only about half of which is needed with the warrior, but I wanted a "lockable" factory styled or shaped bag and with Yamaha there just aren't many options. My 16" Dell laptop and backpack will fit in either side.


I asked a few people here and on other forums with removable bags and 95% of them never took them off, after they installed them, except for cleaning, or maintenance, so no point in making them easily detachable.
As you can see from my pink Styrofoam "road" I did not want the bags to be the limiting factor when leaning... I have scraped the pegs a couple of times, and the bags didn't touch. (My other bike is a Supermoto)

Desertboy,
With imagination and a welder there isn't much that can't be done... I'm just a normal guy...

I used the existing holes in the sub frame / seat rest and hung two pieces of flat stock down vertically, and angled them back so they were more in the center of the bags. The ones on the left side needed a couple of bends made to follow the inside of the recess for the drive cut out. After getting those two "straps" where I wanted them I held up my two pieces of steel (inner and floor) for the bags, and tacked them in place. It took a few tries to get it where I wanted, but the end result is way better and stronger than any bolt on kit stuff I had seen (EZ Brackets, and others). As far as cutting the support pieces. I literally placed the saddle bag on top of the thin cardboard (a few cereal boxes taped together to make one piece large enough), and traced around them. Cereal box can be cut with scissors, or tin snips, now that you have your templates fitting the way you want trace it out onto thin sheet metal, and cut it out with a jigsaw. Just remember to allow time and patience to test fit it about 30 times then take it all apart to powder coat and paint, and hope it all goes back together how it came apart...

I had seen some horror stories of guys supporting the ebay bags only by strips of steel and over time the bags would tend to sag, so I put full support underneath and between the bike and the bags so the inside of the bags could rest against, on and attach to.

If y'all have any more questions feel free to ask.
Josh
