I found my E-Z brackets to be far better than I expected when I ordered them. These babies are STRONG and the fit was perfect! Once removed, the mounting nubs look like they came with the bike. Of course you have to limit the weight you put on them because they appear to be far stronger than the Warrior's fender bracket they mount too. Most of the time I leavemy ugly littlesaddlebags off because I like the lean look ofthe naked Warrior however, on a longer ride I like to have a few tools and some rain gear. I'm planning to make some custom saddlebags this winter that will be shapedto complementmyWarrior's asymetry. To accomodate the Warrior exhaust the right side bag will be short and the left will be long. The E-Z Brackets allow me to focus on the design of the bags without needing to figure out how to mount them. I'm suprised that no bags are made this way to fit a Warrior. Not even from Yamaha! I'm not willing to spend $500 bucks on pipes and another $200 on a fuel mixture control just to makesomeone's mediocre bags fit. Another thing is the EZ brackets have locks. Not pick proof hardened steel drill proof locks but locks that will discourgesomeone who doesn'tthink I have gold bullion stashed in there. (If they thought that they'd probably just saw off the mounting posts or fender brackets) I haven't made up my mind what kind of decoration the bags will have. I'll probably carvesomething into the leather. Flaming skulls maybe.
