    Does your bike have the battery in the saddlebag or on the left side of bike? I think '93 was when it was put under the seat. Catalogs show lids interchange from '93 up, so bags should be same from 93 on.

    1993 the bags got bigger and the lids were different in that they were hinged and swung open , the older lids slid forward and back to latch unlatch, the battery should be behind the r side cover by the oil tank. The new bags were contoured different to give more room around the shock area also if I remember right
     
  3. the battery is located on the right side behind the bag

    If you're willing to do a little work, it can be done.
    I pm'd you a web address. I don't like to post "other" forum links.
