I have the Leatherlyke bags and they have the holes already. As Scoot said the chrome bolts come out and you can replace them with the posts. You may want to add some penetrating oil first so as not to strip.
Maybe you can help me with selecting bags as well.
I have been looking to replace my Kawa bags on my '09 1700 Classic. The Kawa bags are really small and stick out too far with the mounting arrangement Kawa provided IMHO.
Are the Leatherlyke bags good quality bags? They are near $500 so they are up there with the US saddlebags and other pricey bags. Is the mounting system solid and clean looking with the bags removed? I can't find any dealers near Boston MA or Port St Lucie FL who have them so I ca see for myself what they are like.
Anyway, your comments would be very helpful to me.
I like the bags. They're good size. I can fit my half helmet with room to spare. They have a quick release so I can take the bag off real fast. They are hard plastic and fairly sturdy. I think the look is pretty clean when off. They do sell all kinds on ebay. You can go on the leatherlykes website to see what they have. They were already on the bike when I bought it but I like them. I all depends what you like for your bike.
