My solution to saddle bags and I love it

Hi guys, it has been a long time.

I have been trying to sell my scr950 but no takers, so I am kinda chugging along and using it.

Since the bike is my sole means for transport I needed to fix the carrying capacity, on a budget.

My two main precepts:

1. least obtrusive pannier racks with least amount of mods.

2. waterproof saddlebags.

Since I have the benefit of traveling, I went to Louis flea market in Hamburg and found a set of Fehling pannier racks for a Yamaha bolt, part #6131 P YA XV 950 R, customer return, for 10 so got them. I guessed the distances, finally went to a Yamaha shop and tried it on a motorcycle and it looked allright.

Then I went to the other Louis shop, the warehouse, and picked a set of Touratech moto waterproof saddlebags, part # 055-3105, at well over half price.

Next I did was cutting the longer tab on the saddlebag racks and made a thread on the inside of the tube to fit a 10mm bolt, which was what resulted from the material available.

I had to run a drill bit through the frame hole, unfortunately, since this was about 9mm and I needed a tenner to get through.

Fitting was not that difficult, just a little fiddling from the inside.

Overall an easy install and simple mod, the hardest part would be to run the tap. I cut the tab with the dremmel and that wasn't hard.

The result is a very discrete set of pannier racks that do not look ugly when not in use, they also double as a handle to move the bike backwards, which I found difficult since there is nowhere to grab it from at the back.

I love this setup! it really made a difference, it is very practical. The saddle bags fit in 2 minutes. So far I have loaded them with stuff and driven at high speeds and they have performed brilliantly.

The pannier racks for the bolt cost way less than the ones for the SCR950

I will be posting some pics of the end result later

I've had the same exact problem with my SCR950
fell in love with it when I bought it, then realized the problems that came along with it (lack of Accessories.... Luggage options.... storage... head shake ... suspension travel)

but now and after logging over 8000 miles... I'm really happy with it... and hoping I can keep it for

as for the luggage, you can always get the rear luggage rack (Fehling)
and you can customize it to fit a large top box (GIVI or something off ebay)

I've done that and got a 51 liter box that has been doing great so far....

Nilson Rigg 3050 bags seem to be a good option too for the saddle bags

Hi harley, thanks for chipping in, but that was not my point.
Did you actually read my post?

Yes Harley I did. No one asked you (or anyone) anything, no one asked about your top case.
I was trying to help people with a saddlebag solution.
Your post is off topic to say the least.
I find your setup a shocker.
Your latest response, well, gets mine.

No need to and this is not primary school anyway.


I am out.


If you look at my history, I was ganged up about a year ago or more, then I took a long long break.



I just wanted to help people with this post, you can wipe the whole thing altogether. The forum misses, your prerogative.



I just do not understand, I told someone politely that he was not adding anything to my thread, which was very specific.


Then, since I got a cocky answer I expressed my opinion that I would not ride his bike with this weber barbecue grill he fit at the back not even if I have to save my life.


We are in America, aren't we? Freedom of expression rings a bell?


What "forum" means? A place to be insincerely polite, inclusive, sanitized and ultimately lame?


Do you understand the meaning of the word "debate"?


Now, pleae feel free to



a. delete this thread
b. ban me
c. tell me to chill out
d. the rest of the members of this forum with power or sense of entitlement to chip in with comments alike.

d. play god in any other way or form


Have a nice day.


I am out.



again.



The scr950 is a failure of a bike anyway.
