Hard bags fitment

Buddy of mine recently replaced the backs on his cross country with bigger ones. Anyone out there tried putting a a set on their V2K? Thanks

Seen it done. Was going to go that route, bought a set, but later found some Corbins I liked better. The XC bags are still in storage...

Your bike looks great with the Corbins but I have to say I do love the victory bags. I may go that rout in the future. The b one before me put hard bags on before I got the bike

Wowzors. those victory bags and that rear fender look incredible. what kind of bracket work would need done to fit or will most of it all just bolt into place? also what rear fender is that on there? thats a pretty sweet set up.

You would have to fabricate mounts something like these...

The gap between drive pulley and brake caliper could be convered with some fiberglass or metal strips. There was a shop that did a custom install on a VN900 and posted in the forum.

you know how close the mounting and body lines would be on the nomads hard bags? ive heard talk of people attempting those before but never seen it done or found anything out about it. id think they are bikes built pretty similar in size so it would be close.
