fit perfect and the bolt assortment that came with it provided the right size bolt to make install a breeze.


Fit was perfect. I did have to use longer bolts because I have a removable backrest on the passenger seat.


fits like expected... could use some new chrome nuts with the bolts that are supplied


Fit perfectly did have to get different bolts than what was supplied but no big deal


Exactly what is described. Looks very nice even with bags off.

no real complaints. chrome is very good and the quality is as well. could just be a couple bucks cheaper...... but?


Good looking product, easy to install. Comes with all hardware needed.

Sky God

Perfect fit works as advertised


These work and fit as described.


Although these parts were listed as fits your bike, I had to some major modifying on my fender brackets. They are now installed and working well. Foot peg rubbers were a tight fit but work well and look great!


They look good and fit. Work well


Ordered for my 94 fatboy. Fit perfectly as advertised. Would have preferred replacement bolts to be button head, but other than that brackets look good, fit perfect, and do the job much cheaper than going thru Harley dealership.


Fit perfect.


Fits perfectly!


The supports seem to be well made and the chrome is good.


Installed them easily and quickly.


Nice options and as always great service when I call to check fitment


Nice options and as always great service when I call to check fitment


Work great, perfect fit.


These are nicely welded and chromed. The spacing of the mounting points is 1/4 to 1/2 " too tight to match the holes on the fender struts. I can probably stretch the brackets to open the spacing and that's okay.


Nicely made but the fitment discreption is not correct for a 84 FXRS as it says it mounts to the shock bolt and it does not. It requires the removal and or relocation of the turn single in order to mount the bracket. as one of the bolts has to go in the Turn single mount hole. The Mounting instructions that come with it tells you to get. A Drag kit #DS-280318 to remount the turn single.


nice brackets


This product was easy to install , had all the complete hardware . Customer was very happy Thank's J&P .


nice quality and comes with quite a few different lengths of bolts with was very handy.


just what i needed. very little work in installing them on my 79 glide


Great product


have not used it yet but it looks like a great finish and comes with the hardware.


worked out perfect


Good for what it is. Fit well


great price,fast shipping,and worked great too,always a pleasure doing business with J&P.

EL Rancho LOCO

work good some trouble to install

Worked great!


Looks good works good easy to install.


They fit and were an easy install.


Product is great, except that it was missing one of the spacers that was supposed to come with it.


Just what my husband wanted at a very good price.


Product fit decently once I figured out how it went on. There were no instructions included, so I ended up having to use my phone to look up the installation instructions. Other than that, I had problems getting a couple of the bolts to fit right on my 92 sportster, but that was a problem with my bike and not the brackets. They feel very sturdy now that they are installed.


the only thing missing are the saddlebags


Looks Great

harley 1974

Fit great

Look nice, well made. Wish it had a little easier fastening to the bike. Sharing shock mount not sure if really necessary...but still a good buy.




Perfect fit. 20 minutes to install.


Excellent. These brackets went on easier than I expected and they compliment my 95XLH well. I would recommend this product.


These saddlebag brackets did the job - but only after a lot of bending and twisting. When I first bolted them on they held the bags out more than two inches past the shocks so I manhandled them until they held the bags just clear of the shock, which is all that is needed to protect the bag and looks better to my eye. Fortunately the supports are made of tubing, not solid, so it's possible to adapt them.


The brackets are easy to install and remove. Perfect for the occasional use of the throw over saddlebags.


The saddlebag guards are decent for the price, which is about half of Harley's retail. The directons and hardware are great! I would recommend them to someone I know wanting them.


Fit perfect, was able to do it after a couple of beers no problem, made it thru a 1700 mile tour with no issues.


works great


great fit, had to buy longer bolts due to removeable sissy bar


These brackets went on with very little tinkering and really improved the look of my bags, very pleased!


Worked great at half the hd price.


Fit great,easy to install. Great quality product and shipping was super fast!


Extremely easy to install and work perfectly. All the hardware included worked great, I didnt have to alter anything. Brackets and bags were installed and ready to ride in less than an hour. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good, economical support bracket!!


Great fit and finish. Super easy to install. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking to add saddlebags to their ride.


love them, way nicer than I expected, even!

Ice Cream Man

So easy to install I thought I did it wrong! Lol! Great customer service from Scott Holton! Thank you Scott!

Work and look great, easy install, just the ticket!


This product is well worth the money put this on my bike my bags look great cant wait to order more stuff jpcycles has fast shipping to


These brackets were exactly what I was looking for. A fairly priced bracket that looks great and does what is supposed to do. They were easy to install on my '02 sportster. I had them installed in about 30 minutes. Great item for a great price.


fits my 99 sporty 1200 perfectly

They fit great and they supply the extra hardware, It looks nice like a custom fit, I painted mine a black to blend in.


Very happy with these supports. They are exactly as described and easy to install. Shipping was quicker than expected too. Similar parts from Harley-Davidson are $100. These were a great alternative at a much lower cost.

kurt gohman

great product for the money fit the bike well with no allterations

Great fit for my 96 sportster. Only 4 stars because the bracket directions state to throw away the old shock cover and top washer and use the shim washers for spacing. I didn't receive any shim washers so I'm glad I held on to my old hardware.


I was very satisfied with my purchase and the items I bought looked like top quality. They were everything I expected and I will by more things for my bike from J&P Cycles in the future. Thanks.


Brackets worked good with the bags. Had to ream out one bolt hole on the mount.


I have a few complaints about these brackets. Most importantly, they won't work with my bags. They're just too small. I installed them, threw my Langlitz throw over saddlebags on and the supports barely touched the bags! The bags still rub against the swingarm! Now, compare these to the '04 Sportster brackets I bought at the same time (8400075). The Sportster ones are 2" longer and 1 1/2" wider, and the bar itself is 1/2" diameter, as opposed to these (3/8"). Second is a cosmetic problem: the bolts are your standard hardware supply store hex bolts (not hex as in you need a hex key, but rather a socket to tighten them). Hardly the look I want. Compare this to the bolts you get on the Sportster kit - nice round-headed bolt (mostly - hex key, not torx) match the rest of the bolts on the bike. Still a lot better than these ugly ones. Third, as stated in another comment, one of the bolts won't fit through the support. You'll have to ream out one bolt hole. Or, if you have bolts lying around like I did, just use one of those. (Or buy one from your nearest hardware store.)


Product looks good, but the bolts supplied are too short.


The quality of this product is very nice. But, I had to cut one side down to allow it to fit. the bolts were not long enough to go thru them. All in all a good product.


Left side support is perfect, right side needs a few more degrees added so the saddle bag will clear the swingarm.


No problem with bolts being short or having to ream out the holes. The right side support needs a different configuration on it, my saddlebag still hits the swingarm.


They fit perfect


Holes do not line up. I'm going to have bend them to make them work.


Great product and service as always. I did return this order because we sold the bike before it arrived.


Exactly what I needed, the fit was perfect.


Good Quality but bolts too short to mount with existing sissy


Fit perfect.


Fit perfect.




just what I expected great price for product


Just as ordered, I will not use as described, I am making a set of bags and these will be a built in bracket.


fit perfect


they look good but they do not fit, unless i am doing something wrong but they are too small to mount where the sissy bar attaches


perfect fit


Had to run a drill through the mounting holes to get the bolts through, the chrome made the tolerance to tight. Other than that they look and fit nice.


I had to custom machine the bolts to accomadate my quick release sissy bar and lose the advantage of having chrome on the surface of the bolts.


Great product, only problem was there were no instructions for installation. I figured it out pretty quickly, how ever, some instructions would have made it easier.


Product needed more hardware that was not suplied with the supports. Needed about $20 bucks worth of 3" chrome bolts & nuts. The catolge said it will fit '05 superglide it faild to tell you that you needed to relocate turn signals because your saddle bags would not fit. Hardware supplied with kit fit a '02 and earlier superglide .


the saddle bag brackets were super, I did not realize that the set came with the great tail-light assembly right there in the kit. Major freakin cool idea


Worked great on my 2007 Super Glide.


The review is for the saddle bag supports for a 2001 Harley FXD. The supports were properly suited for the bike and look good. My only issue was that the information on them in the catalogue was a bit light. I had already relocated my rear directionals to the tail light and did not need the long bolts to reconnect the lights through the bracket. Had to locate after market bolts to finish the install.


Works great. I had to make a trip to the hardware store to get a few different bolt to work on my '93 Dyna.


Insallation was a peice of cake, I would recomend this product.


Brackets work well. Just had to figure out how to install them.


The package contained two sets of rear turn signal relocators. The brackets went on easily, and I am very pleased with them.


Supports work great!


I bought this for a 2004 Wide Glide. The wires did not fit within the hollow bolts. Since I had to have the supports in place for a bike trip I had to leave the wires outside the bolts. VERY disappointed.


Nice and solid.


Easy to install, works as advertised; Price was average; made in USA.


Works great on my dyna. Makes you feel like you have floorboards. The adjustments make it really nice.


Brackets look good, installed fairly easy. Turn signal relocation doesn't move them back where they need to be on my dyna. Guess I'll have to use smaller bags. Still a good value for what is provided.


Little bit of a pain to install , the turn signal stud end could have been a tad bit longer as I had to use clamps on both sides to squeeze the fender enough to get the inside nut started , But definatly worth the effort and price .


supports look good but the instructions are horrible. DO NOT cut the wires behind the turn signal housing. cut them inside the fender well. i had to buy new wire and fix it.


Easy to install. I have a HD dyna and I did not have to put the bike on a lift to put these on so that makes it easy to install. As long as you have a little knowledge about the light wireing.


Products was sturdy, looked great, and was easy to install on my Dyna Low Rider. Thanks JPCycles!


I think the hardware could have been better. I didn't use any of it because I have a detachable sissy bar and made my own brackets for the blinkers. But it works well for the $.

support brackets look great and was a perfect fit. Mounted easy and had all the hardware you needed to relocate turning signal. Shipped very quickly. Great Price. Could use some instructions.


I was really surprised on the quality for the price. Had to get longer bolts since I have a detachable back rest, but figured I would before I ordered


Good bracket but made me have to move my after market blinkers back and the mounting hardware is useless but a quick trip to lowes for screws always works. 2 stars for the inconvenience.


a perfect fit , for my 2003 dyna low rider shipped in good time ! they came with hardware, plus blinker relocation studs...already had moved lights to license plate ,had to buy 2 ss bolts all in all good deal!


These brackets support my bags really well!


Easy to install however, did require cutting turn indicator wires. The wires are very difficult to thread through the harness.


Some hardware didn't fit right. Nothing a trip to Home Depot couldn't fix. Other than that it's great.


great price


Good construction. Kit contains everything necessary for relocation.


The bags looked great but would not fit on my 97 Dyna even with the light Mod. Seat prevented full opening as well as lights. This was 7 hours of my husbands life(had to fully mount one bag to find this out.


Brackets came in fast and were easy to install. Look great on the bike and I am very pleased with the quality.

Very nice . Fit perfect


Look good. The instructions are somewhat vague, but really, I could have gotten by without any. I will be re-routing my turn signal wires.


Look good. The instructions are somewhat vague, but really, I could have gotten by without any. I will be re-routing my turn signal wires. Ordered Friday, they were at my door Saturday afternoon.

Looks and fits well. Did have to buy longer bolts but not a big deal


These saddlebag supports fit my 2006 Sportster Custom great, & they are heavier built & look even better than I expected! Thanks J & P


The "SADDLEBAG SUPPORTS 04-05 XL" fit the '06 XL 1200R very well. However, if you have a detachable backrest, some of the bolts supplied in the kit will be too short. Two 3-1/2 bolts have to be purchased localy to complete the installation. If the 2 bolts would have been included I would have rated this product as "best".


These get the job done. I was just wondering why they don't send replacement Torx bolts. They send Hex bolts and the one that they call 3/16" is actually a metric 5mm. In the directions it tells you that you will need a 3/4" combo wrench, but you actually use a 5/16" inch allen wrench.


The saddlebag supports bolted right up and I am very pleased with the product and price.


I was told that having a detachable sissy bar would prevent me from placing this on to my 2004 Sportster 1200. This was incorrect, I just had to stop by a home and garden store to get a deferent set of bolts to use do to the extra length that was required. Other than that I am very happy with this.


Supports were a perfect fit. You can`t see them regardless with saddlebags on anyhow. The only problem I had was, I have a backrest with permanent sideplates and the bolt that was sent wasn't long enough to go through it. I had to buy a longer bolt.


Brackets came with 2.25in. 5/16in button head bolts. Bolts needed to be 3in. long to tie in through strut and nut under fender. Also recieved no instructions so I was cuaght off gaurd that my shocks would come completely off strut as bolt was being loosened. I would have supported suspension prior to instalation had I known that. Other than those two issues the product is fine.


Brackets fit my '06 Sportster 1200c great. No complaints on this product.


Nice product but the rear bolts were not long enough. The bike was an 05 883L. Needed to be about 1/2 inch longer.


The only problem I had was the bolts that came with it were'nt long enough. Because of my sissy bar bolted at the same place. But I found the right size bolts at the hardware store.


Well made, but did not fit my 2006 sporty XL 1200. I still used it by cutting it up and adapting it.


Excellent value,beautiful chrome finish and a perfect fit.The only thing I suggest is use a spring compressor to hold the shocks.Holds my saddlebags perfectly and gives the big an awesome look from behind.Much better price than Harley!!


Exceptional fit and performance.


Bag supports fit great and installed easy. Gives the bike a great new look.


High quality, easy to install. I would have preferred them in gloss black but did not see that offered.


Installed these on my '04 XL1200C. The fit was perfect and the brackets and hardware are quality material.


08 Sportster. Brackets worked fine but the bolts that came with it did not thread in properly so just had to buy different bolts.


easy to install just as good as factory


Works great hold quite a bit of stuff for your travels.


EZ to install--Great fit.


Fit my Iron883 perfectly!! I may buy the larger size as well for longer trips!


nice look when bags are not on


fit was perfect, fast and easy!


Great part, easy install.


well made, sturdy great looking and easy install!


They work


When installed, they pushed the bags out around three inches from the shocks. After pushing them in closer for an all around slimmer rear end, rust began to show through at the welds in a month.


Product as described, good enough... not so easy to install due to you must remove the top screw from each rear sock absorber, mines expanded a little bit causing that the new screws did not fit well... trying to compress the shock was difficult... better lift the by the rear fender and with the other hand fitting the screw in...


Fit like a glove.


Great price and easy to install!!!


Fit and work well. No complaints at all. Hardest part of installation was getting the bolt shared with the rear shock back in. Had to use 2 people, one to lift the weight of the bike and the other to install the bolt.


Quick delivery. Fits perfect on my 2008 harley sportster xl 883l


I have a 72 XLCH and these brackets fit my stock Sportster struts perfect.


Fit great on my 73 xlch1000 sporty

Jonathan 20056.0

Perfect fitment, chroming was flawless. Very happy with my purchase.


The fit was perfect, a little longer would be nice. Also, if there were better bolts, instead of SAE bolt, a type of allen head would be nice. Other than that great purchace, fast delivery, excellent fit and nice transaction. Thanks J&P for helping. GVGaston


These saddlebag supports are just what I needed to keep my throw over bags from scraping on my rear tire. They fit perfectly and do the job right.


works and looks great


They're pretty good, comes with all necessary hardware and very sturdy, IMO, they could be a little longer and wider for securing saddlebags to them.


it worked perfect.


They are kinda short for a full bag. The bracket should be longer (lower) to brace the bags with zip ties.


Easy to install. Good and sturdy.


Good fit on my 06 softail standard, bolted right up.

Good fit on my 06 softail standard, bolted right up.


Great fit. And they look great


Nice supports. exactly what I was looking for


Quick clean and simple. Works great.

the hound

Fit was perfect for my fat boy


Will not work if you have a detachable backrest. the spacer for the backrest is one bolt used for the racket, the other is not, so it's just not compatible. Also they aren't very long. Unless you have compact bags, these will be quite small. For my 2007 Fat Boy


These racks work great for my leather bags. Although I wish they came with a nicer bolt for the rear mount. The hex bolts pertrude and theres an extra hole that throws off the look.


Perfect fit. Thks alot.


Pushes saddlebags out too far, way past shocks,too much of a kick out..


Seems like a fine product. Very sturdy, but did not fit with my detachable sissy bar set-up. Had to return and order different style of suppport.


This was purchased for a 2007 FXDL. the specs say it mounts to the shock stud and the fender strut but for the FXDL that isn't the case. It mounts to the fender strut and the rear turn signal bracket. It still mounted nicely and looks good.


Supports work well as intended. I thought they would be a little bigger though. Fit well on my 2007 Super Glide and still looks good if you are riding without bags. Hardware was not correct for two of the mounting points so I had to go out and get two additional bolts.


So far they've worked great and fit fine on the bike w/o looking dorky. Chrome seems good too.

There were no install instructions but I got it all figured out after about 2 hrs. Other than that they work great!!

Quality of the supports are good; unfortunately two of the bolts didn't fit as advertised. Produce described as fitting year/make/model of my bike...not completely true.


Works great. Easy installation. Great price.


perfect fit easy to install


Could lay a little closer for smaller 13" bags but I guess they are used for oversized bags to.


Fit great ! smaller width so they aren't seen behind the bags. Would recomend!


These were easy to install and looked Awesome! Great Product half the Price of HD! Thanks J&P! ;o)




the supports are a good fit but depending on how you mount them you will find you will have to find mounting hardware.


Great product. Only issue I had was that I had the turn signal delete installed so I had to purchase different bolts as the ones that came with it were designed to be used with the turn signals in place. Highly recommend this product!


They fit as expected and do the job


Easy on and they work great no complaints......Buy Them.

I haven't installed yet but appear to be high quality & 1/2 the price the Harley Davidson wanted. I will continue to use J&P aftermarket on my bike when possible. I have never been disappointed.


They do set the bags out plenty , but you don't have to worry about anything getting in the brake or sprocket, and plenty strong ,came with all the proper bolts for mounting


easy to install and came with all the bolts needed, I did apply blue loc tight to bolts as added measure they give the bags all the clearance needed from the swing arm and at a great price!!!


Great support for my super cool bags!


Great support for my super cool bags!


it should comes with installation guide. it came with 4 screws, I had to purchase 2 screws from local store and use only 2 screws came with this order since the other 2 is too long and smaller in diameter


Easy to install, works great, WAY cheaper than the Harley ones.

Good sturdy supports


Great product. Fast shipping.


they work well in my config


Easy to install and cheap
