Easy Brackets quick release saddlebag support bracket
WHY DO I WANT TO BUY EASY BRACKETS?
Everyone will have their own particular reasons. However some of the
most common are:
- To eliminate damage to the paint on the rear fender with throw over saddlebags.
- To be able to remove the bags in seconds when you arrive at your destination and reinstall them in seconds when you are ready to leave.
- To return your bike to a clean cruising look.
- To be able to install your bags to avoid conflicts such as high shot gun pipes.
HOW DO EASY BRACKETS WORK?
Easy Brackets are shipped with all the hardware necessary to mount them to your motorcycle with only basic tools. The kits comes with 4 highly polished stainless steel keeper docking posts which are mounted to your motorcycle fender rail with polished stainless steel bolts. They will replace the existing fender mounting bolts. The bracket is then mounted to the back of the saddlebags with the hardware provided. The bracket then slides onto the docking posts and locks into place.

WHAT TYPES OF SADDLEBAGS WILL WORK WITH EASY BRACKETS?
Easy Brackets are designed to work with any hard, flat back saddlebags. If the back of the saddlebags are flexible leather, a piece of rigid material similar to thin aluminum or Plexiglas may be attached to the inside or outside of the back of the saddlebags to create a rigid surface. If the saddlebags are the throw over type, the yoke may be cut off and the exposed edge dyed with black dye or black shoe polish. Easy Brackets will also work with OEM saddlebags but may require longer bolts and shims at the mounting points due to the formed back on most OEM saddlebags.
WHAT IF I HAVE A DETACHABLE BACKREST?
Easy brackets are designed specifically for use with many detachable backrests. The Easy Bracket docking posts mount outside the detachable backrest making the two systems independent of each other. Please note the detachable backrest hardware is not included and must be purchased separately.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE ANY OTHER HARDWARE TO USE THIS PRODUCT?
No, the kit comes complete with all necessary hardware to mount the Easy Brackets to the motorcycle using saddlebags with a hard, flat back.
DO I HAVE TO DRILL HOLES IN MY FENDER?
WILL THE BRACKET REMAIN ON MY MOTORCYCLE?
No, only the small docking posts will remain on your motorcycle. They are small and made from highly polished stainless steel – very unobtrusive. The brackets are permanently attached to the saddlebags.
IF I HAVE A BACKREST, THEN DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE AN "ADAPTER KI" TOO?
No, If you purchase the correct Easy Bracket kit then everything you need is in that kit — no hidden “gotcha” fees.
IF I ALREADY HAVE THE EASY BRACKETS AND I UPGRADED TO A BACKREST DO I HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE NEW KIT?
