I would like to get some saddle bags for my SCR but i cannot justify the price of the Yamaha ones, Has anyone found any good aftermarket saddle bags for theirs?
Although these are not true saddle bags, they are plenty useful in carrying your daily commuting needs and still have room for basic tools and rain gear. These four bags were handmade by our forum member @Krixtoph who does outstanding leather work.
I have two Pony Express style bags along with an under the seat Stash Bag and a Crossbar Bag. These four bags give me all the storage space I need, but they would fall short if you are looking for true saddle bags that can carry extra clothes and gear for a long journey.
At a minimum I would recommend the under seat Stash Bag which makes use of the wasted space in that void area under your seat.

Fehling rack and saddlebag guards, and then throw over any bag that floats your boat. If you want a huge bag for long trips, and functionality is more important than form, I recommend the Nelson Rigg "CL855" or "Sierra Dry" saddlebags. I have an older version of the CL855, the CL850. I bought them in 2007 or 2008, and except for just a little sun fading, they're like new. HUGE bags. I've attached a pic of the bags mounted to my 84 Magna.

No saddlebags will fit on the SCR without some kind of brackets to keep the bags off the shock. The shock sticks out so much that any bags will tilt and mount funny and end up in the rear wheel without them.

If you want some smaller leather bags, I like the River Road Momentum Quick Release saddlebags. They come in black or brown, plain or studded, square or slant. These: https://www.ebay.com/itm/382418316375

These include rain covers and an inner liner bag. They're thick and they hold their shape well. They're smaller than the Nelson Riggs, but they're really nice bags for everyday use. I've attached a (bad) pic of them on my EX500 Ninja-turned-scrambler.

Thanks for the plug Schu!

I have a Fehling Rack and saddlebag supports and I just picked these Held canvas saddlebags up. You have to order them from Europe, they aren’t for sale in the US. So far I like them. Picked up some items from Home Depot with them. They have a waterproof inner liner and are proportioned right for the bike. For moto camping touring I don’t plan on taking saddlebags and using a seat bag instead. If just hoteling it these with a small tailbag would be fine.

And yes, my front fender is on backwards.

Don't know how big you want but I just ordered Nelson-Rigg SE-3050-BLK Sierra Dry Saddlebags I had a smaller set but wanted bigger bags and these are waterproof. You may need a mounting bracket for them but they will fit over the seat also.
