Saddle bags

Does anyone know if the hard leather saddle bags that come on the 950 and 1300 will fir on a 650. I like these bags.

I'm sure others will chime in to correct me, but from what I've seen with aftermarket vendors, is that the bags can be Universal, you just need the correct mounting brackets & hardware for the bike you are mounting them on...

Yep, Bevo is right. I JUST added these to my non-touring model. Picked up a set in MINT condition from the forum. The dealer put them on as my bike was being repaired at the time.

I thought it was an easy install, and was going to do it myself, BUT, it took the dealer a long time since I had the quick release back rest and they had to relocate the rear passanger pegs with a kit, so I am glad I didn't do it. I thought it was a 30 minutes easy job, just a few bolts, BUT, turns out it was more of a PITA than I knew, so I am glad timing worked out for them to do it as part of my repairs from getting rear ended.
