Here are some pictures of the bag mounts I built, and the grips that I installed. I used 5/8" steel, slightly less than 8' in length. I tig welded some schedule 80 pipe nipples that were used for where the bolts to the fender go. I believe these are #8 125mm. I used 1/4" 20 screws to fasten the bags to the bracket and fender washers.







The grips I show how to take the chrome of the throttle tube.


To pull the end weights off, you have to remove the tiny caps in the center of the weight when looking at it from either side. Under the cap you'll find a metric allen head, I don't remember the size, but they are pretty easy to remove. Once those were off, I used a small screwdriver to mover around the clutch bar, and the throttle side I disassembled.

It looks like you can't ride two up with those on, is that the case? I think for that i would rather have a solo seat with a single bag on the rack behind the seat. Just my opinion.

Truthfully I'm not sure if a passenger would fit. I would like a solo seat, but I like the Idea of the option of a passenger. I also want one of those BR1200 or whatever bags that straps to the seat for long trips.

Makes sense if you are planning to have a passenger or think you may, and you will def be set for the long haul by adding a bag that straps to the seat, by the way really digging those grips. The more I see those the more I want a set. Bike looks great Jester, thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys.

There will be lots more to come. I just ordered a new headlight and mirrors, and am getting in on the group buy (I think?) for the chin scoop, and front and rear fenders. If I've read correctly the rear fender and led lighting is the same as the lighting alone with the group buy price.

Well, you can definitely ride with two with no problems. Went for my first non-solo ride and she was comfy. As far as being easy to remove JRC, its just the 4 bolts and re-install the stock 4.

Once I get my fender I plan on making some sort of quick release set up, but will probably make the bag mounts off the passenger peg brackets.
