Hard Bags????

Ok when I bought this VN750 the previous owner had put in TINY turnsignals on the bottom of the glove box on the back rest in order to fit some large soft bags without the cumbersom factory turnsignals..... My wife said she cant see the signals when she is behind me. so rather then buying new signals for 110 plus shipping i am wondering who has a set of these and the quality and if they like them or whats the deal cause it is tempting due to the price and it is scarey due to the price. never know what your going to get. http://www.mutazu.com/products.php?c...=39&s=prod.php


thanks devilin

I have similar hard bags on my bike and the lights are red led's, okay for additional brake lights only.

You have other choices.

You can get bikemaster turnsignals identical to the factory ones for like $ 20 each. I bought all four for under $ 100 delivered.

Or you can get turn signal relocation bracket like I have which moves t/s's to the license plate bracket, love mine. Then get any bags you want, hard or soft as the t/s's are already out of the way.

Well.. they are small..
Overall Dimensions: 17.5" (Length), 11.5" (Height), 5.5" (Thickness)
and you have to buy the mounting kit (another $29) and if I remember correctly, the mointing kit really does better if it is re-enforced.
I believe those are like the bags that Jim "Pick" had before he got his givi bags.

Funny enoguh, I have Pick's old bags with the good brackets he made and love them.

Depends what you need to carry, they are plenty big enough for me. Lunch, a jacket, spare shield, glass case, rain gear, etc. I will not be traveling where I need a change of clothes, they would be too small for more than I said above.

My local shop found replacement turn signals stock but not Kaw, for something like 23 bucks a signal. I will find out the manufacturer and let you know. Nevermind 93vn750 already covered them!

Devilin, I just bought these hard bags and love them. The only thing that I had to do was to make spacers to bring the hard bags further out to clear the shocks. There is plenty of room in these and they also have locks. Something that soft bags dont have. I ride to work everyday and have even been caught in the rain. No leaks. I also like the fact that they have lights that I wired up to the break lights and they work and light up the rear nicely. You can see pictures of these installed on my bike in my GALLERY. Lots of luck and I would most certainly recommend them.
