Free is definitely good just throwing a cheaper option out for those interested in the brukus kit.

Just made my own up from parts at the local hardware store and have that much $ in them not counting the gas to drive there. Sounds like a good deal!

PSI,

I had made my own, BUT could only find HEX bolts at local HD and Lowes. Where did you fine the TORX bolts and tool?

I would like to replace my 4 HEX bolts with TORX.

Yes I have 2 still available, but I've already placed the order and no torx bits remain. They can be easily obtained from a local tool shop if you don't have one already. PM me if you're still interested.

So after reading the two threads about saddlebags falling off and several others about tour-paks and saddle bags being stolen I decided that it might want to check my bag pins, since they've been off recently, and sure enough one was a tad loose. I really don't want to be replacing my bags so I decided it was time to go out and buy that highly recommended high dollar theft prevention kit.....

I searched this vendor's web site, started my order and that's when it hit me.... WOW this shit carries a crazy high ass price for what I'm getting!!! So I thought twice on it, and since I don't have anything else to do I started looking for "CHEAPER" alternatives, and anyone who knows me knows I'm not paying for something just because there is a well known name attached to it, or because it's easier that way or because someone gave it a great review on the internet.... I quickly decided that I wasn't paying that much period and to be honest I don't think anybody else should either.

I've located all the same parts to put my own kit together minus that torx tool (I have my own torx). All parts are stainless except the speed nuts, just like the name brand kit. What's the point in all of this? That kit has a markup that's about 150% higher than what it will cost any of us to build our own kit. I'm placing an order for the parts I need tomorrow, and if anyone else is interested in a kit please let me know (savings in bulk). I've figured that each kit will cost about $12.00 (no tool) and 16.95 (with tool). I've got no plans to compete for the other vendor's business, but if you're interested in saving some cash and want this kit, now is your chance.
Hopefully it's not too late to put my order in with you...I, too, have a CVO (13 Atomic Orange/Gray) and wanna buy my 'ounce of prevention." please add me to the list and let me know how to get the $ to you...
