    New to the forum, i have a set of new HD hard touring saddle bags, have all parts to attach lids to bottoms but am not sure how to attach latches, thin, long metal brackets, or which screws go where. Does anyone have any detailed pictures or a detailed description they could post?? I am replacing the police saddle bags from my 06 FLHT/I police bike with regular bags i got at a steal price. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Jerry; Welcome to the forum. I just looked in my service manual, and there's nothing real helpful like pics. Go to, select harley,year,and select a touring model, then go to body and fender section. click on saddlebag pic, and it will open a larger exploded parts view that should help. I put different latch covers on mine, but have not had the whole assembly apart. Post back with any specific problems you encounter, someone here knows the fix.:)

    Hi, and welcome, I just had my hard bags painted, so I took everything off. I found it was easier to attach the saddle bag lock to the lid first then attach the body to the bag. The covers go on last along with the HD fabric. I have an 02 RK and my manual has a good exploded view that was very helpful

    Don't forget to use threadlocker on the mounting bolts, they will rattle loose!!

    I replace my police bags (bad shape) with a set of FLHX bags I got off ebay. They were dark blue so I had to repaint to the Cadillac Pearl White that I had sprayed on my bike. I disassembled all parts for the paint job. If the previous posts don't help let me know and I will try and take some pics etc . They are shown in my parts manual in pretty good detail? Good Luck : )
