Extended Saddlebag Upgrade

Looking to get new bags for my 13 RGU. Got a few options picked out, but was wondering about switching to the new style bag/lids (2014+). If I buy the newer style bags/lids, will they bolt right up to my current set up (13 RGU)? If it's going to require me to get a bunch of new hardware, I'll just stick with what I have.

I also want the new style (2014 one-touch) extended bags, with the sweet rounded edge over the '13 with the angled-cut edge. I believe the '14 bags will work with a slight modification, however, the bags won't open with a '13 tour-pak. I'm not removing or replacing my tour-pak...

Yes they will work with the older tour pak. You have to make a spacer. I seen 1/2 rubber hose between the tour pak and the bracket to raise it up just enough for the lids to clear. Lot's of things you could use to space it up some.

The hardware (hinge and latches) are expensive, but the bags will bolt up with a few adjustments to the mounting points. They aren't an exact fit on the bottom rails, but they fit. The saddlebags will sit further out on the back.

90200520 Latch assembly right $249.49
90200521 Latch assembly left $249.40

You can go aftermarket for less money. Fairing Plus has black for about $1000
