These stand off from the side of the bike enough to allow bags to clear the shocks. If you want the bags in front of the shocks and closer to the bike, order the slimline version instead or you will have an extra 3-4 inches of space between the brackets and the bike. Otherwise they work wonderfully.


Once again grate deals


I like it!! The install took about 2 hours, but well worth it . The bags are off in 10 seconds or back on!! Being able to take the bags off to clean it and then right back on is so easy. Well worth the money!!


The Easy Brackets are the perfect product for those of us who want the convenience of saddlebags, but don't want the look of saddlebags all the time. Removal is simple, and with the separate tote handle, carrying them is just as easy.


The coolest mounts ever! Everyone that's seen them is envious, with the turn of a key my bike is bag less.


excellent piece of hardware. Be aware that you will have to move your turn signals to use. Was easy to install and looks great. Watched the video before I installed and was truely easy.


Perfect fit on my 1998 Dyna Low Rider!! Quick install and no problems!! You do need a buddy to help line Them up for the hole drilling!! Great product and fair price!!!


Exellent setup for traveling. And for cleaning after a ride.


It fit great looks good and works fine.


Top of the line. Works like they say, are easy to install and a quality product.


I install it and it fell off after 15 min of riding. I shipped it back...NOT IMPRESSED


Easy to mount and works perfect on my 2001 FXSTS


Makes mounting and removal of my saddlebags a breeze.


Nice to be able to drop the saddle bags quickly


Worked great! you do need to relocate your stock turn signals, The key needs to be a little longer as it can be hard to get between the fender and the bag to unlock the bracket, but other than that, they work great on my 2002 fatboy.


Works great love it. The only thing my buddy did notice is they flap around a bit on the pegs that mouth to the flags when when you have empty saddle bags. Time will tell if they wear. But I did take a 4thousand mile road trip recently with this product and it was nice to be able to remove them when I stopped to see people.


This is the second time I used these, wouldn't use any other bag mount


Nice clean install Thanks J&P cycle


the name says it all. it was very easy...


These worked great but the top bolts needed to be cut down about 1/4" to get the nuts tightened down all the way for my application. They are hard to reach and I could only get a 1/4" drive 9/16" socket with an extension down inside the bracket to get the nuts tightened all the way. before trimming down the bolts the socket would bottom out on the end of the bolt.


Great product works great


Heavy & expensive but it's a fine item and it did the job.


great product


I like to be able to remove everything possible when I am riding without a passenger. This bracket is easy to remove and is just what I was looking for. Caution when locking in on and off. The lock mounts close to your fenders so I like to use only the one key, no key chains because it is easy to scratch your fender if your not careful.


Excellent! Works better than I had hoped for. My Harley dealer said it won't work with the detachable side plates, your going to need bag supports, etc. The only thing I'm sorry I did was buy their cheesy Harley signal relocation kit.


Fit like a glove and was very easy to install.


Fits very well, relatively easy to install. The only tricky bit is getting the brackets mounted to the bags, and getting them in the right place, definitely needs 2 people. My hardware was supplied with the wrong length fender bolts, which just meant I cut them down and treated the ends to prevent rust. Could knock a star off for that, but the system fits so well I think 5* is realistic.


A very good product!!!


Works great!


Kit came with no instructions (although you can find an instruction video online). I ordered the kit for Softail with a detatchable backrest. Parts fit well, but bags sit to far out (away from the bike). Looks "goofy". I should've went with Bare Backs.


Kit came with no instructions (although there is an instruction video online). I ordered kit for '06 Softail with detatchable backrest. Parts fit good, but bags sit too far out (away from bike). Looks "goofy". I should have ordered Bare Backs instead.


Easy installation and a clean look when removed. Had a little trouble with one lock but the manufaturer replaced it in days.


simple installation looks good with the bags on or off.


This setup worked perfectly for my 2012 HD Super Glide. I have a detachable sissy bar and the brackets came with all the parts including chrome button head screws to make it all work fine. Bike looks good when bags are removed. No brackets hanging from fender. Thanks J&P you came thru for me!


I have had these before on another bike and love them.


The bracket is very well made, the instructions are ok, but the part does not fit 2013 FXDB, I checked fitment before ordering, it said it fits my bike, but it does not. I did have to purchase taillight relocation kit, but the bracket was still a 1" to short, I made it work with some jimmy rigging, I couldn't send back account I cut down the bolts to fit so wouldn't hit tires, so after the dry fit, and the bracket was going to be to short, I took some steel I had, cut and extended bracket with a bit of welding, grinding, paint got it to fit. So make sure that you measure your bracket hook up points, I just relied on the fitment app on the web site, and it was wrong.


Easy to put on and they came in handy I love these brackets
