Saddle Bag Style?!?

I had a question about model nomenclatures. I have a 2007 shark, and I want to buy saddle bag lid organizers.

How do I know if my saddle bags are the FLH style or FLD style?

FLH are hard molded squarish bags and FLD are the ones on road kings that look more rounded. You shouldn't have the rounded saddle bags. My opinion on the lid organizers is don't waste your money. I have them and they keep falling off and require using a different adhesive tape/velcro than what comes with them.

Small tool pouch for the little things. I keep my ins./ reg. in a zip-lock bag under the seat. Anything else shouldn't be much of a problem.

saddle bag style

Opinions.........my old lady bought me the organizers for the lid, and like the previous post said the adhesive/velcro provided sucks. The organizer itself on the other hand I love. I keep reg/ins, ear plugs, extra glasses, rain sock for AC, extra fuses, light gloves, all the small stuff that gets lost or broken by being thrown in the saddle bag with everything else.

If you buy them, do yourself a favor and immediately strip off the stock adhesive and use either 3m extreme tape, or some other form of adhesive. I used some construction adhesive for plastics on the old lady's bike.......they're not falling off!

Wouldn't heavy duty strips of Velcro work? I'm looking at the saddle man lid organizers.

The FLD is the Dyna Switchback. You need the FLH version.

Check our Lid Gear for saddlebag storage tethers. They work great and are made in the USA. No velcro to worry about, they replace your stock lid tethers and have tons of small item storage.

Just tried to find them online, their webpage has been taken down and the email that I had bounced back. Too bad, the ones that I have I really like for storing all kinds of stuff like fuses, well nuts, seat screws, tire plugs etc.

Dinggus.....they are supplied with adhesive velcro. One side attached to organizer, the other attaches to saddlebag lid. If you read the reviews of the saddleman brand you will find that the overwhelming majority of complaints are from the adhesive velcro not holding. Thats why I suggested using something totally diff before you experience what many of us already have. Mine held for a a few weeks over the winter, but after a few warm days they started pulling loose and eventually just fell off leaving me a sticky mess to clean off the lid, and the organizer.
