Hello.

While my spinal block is working this month, I am taking my BATES saddlebags and trunk off., and clean the chrome real good this winter, or until the Spinal Block wears off. A while back, someone posted a digram showing how it went together. I need to put mine on properly. Does anyone know how or where the diagram is or was gotten from? Iam going to do them right, and then I will be happy with it. I started breaking them down this morning around 8:30, and Its 3:03 now, and I am going to quit for the day. and rest

Thanks,

Nightrider1

wda-83wing,

Thanks. I finally got then done. All I like is the 4 tiny screews that hold the frft saddlebag to the right, but that is not difficult to do. I can even lie down to do it!

Funny though, they don't look no different, except they may be more correct than before.


Thanks Brother,

Nightrider1

Wayne,

I guess the only problem I am having right now is trying to figure out how to oput the pitside stainless brace on each side on. I have to hold up 4 parts at a time, and I can run then without them, but I don't like that idea.

Also, with the heavy tailgate section, that doesn't make it easier, But I will get it!

Thanks,

David

wda can you repost that pic as a downloadable file, I tried to blow it up and it isn't clear. I have same bags as Knightrider1 but had to figure out the hard way,because my diagram wasn't very clear.

Roncar,

I tried to download the file, but I got this error

>>" http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=57557&forum_id=1&jump_to=578508 /albums/album311/saddlebagsheetzu6.jpg 403 403 Forbidden, go back! 208.61.179.85 <<"

My Left saddlebag is a little lower than the right side. I guess I will wait until I have the time to do it all again. It isn't difficult to put them on, because I found my spacers. What makes it difficult is having to jack up the trailor Hitch, all the time alighing the Seat Trim, 2 (Inside and Outside) rear Bates stainless steel braces, Fender, and making sure the spacer is correctly centered, then bolting them into the spacers. In fact, I guess if does have some difficulty with the trailor hitch.

Thanks,

Nightrider1

Looking at it I don't think the resolution is much better anyway. Let me find the original, rescan it, and find somewhere else to host it.

I really know very little about Bates accessories. The instructions I have was folded in a service manual I got on ebay. Being the packrat, I couldn't just throw it away.
