Saddlebag Mounting Hardware

What is everyone using one the Rushmore bikes to mount their saddlebags? Are you using the newer HD hardware or an aftermarket kit? And if the later who's?

I keep seeing ones like this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...7400_421152110

On my 2011 I had these Torx tamper proof screws that held the bags on that were really nice. Just curious what is out there now.

The first mod I made was to put the M8 saddlebag kit, not that expensive (less than 50 $ if i remember fine) and is almost 3 years onboard with great peace of mind

Wildman, I'm using a similar kit to what you posted. They work. I like the Harley levers, and might order them if I was starting over. I imagine that the performance is the same.

That's what I'm using on my 2015 RGS but the hardware is stainless steel, and they work great.

I have never had any issues with my bags loosening or flying off my sled.

I use the Rickrak saddlebag fasteners, a little expensive but well made and stainless steel. And they work great.

i like the hd kit. it is 'beefier' than the other aftermarket kits, so that gives you a little added confidence. i've never really seen a j-nut break, but i guess it could.

buy it from one of the discounters. i think i got mine for around $35 when i bought them before. course, if that is all you're ordering, by the time you add in shipping, it's about the same as if you got them from your local. but if you're placing a bigger order, doesn't hurt to add these in as well.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I use a combination of the H-D pins in the rear and the H-D 16 up style. Secured the bag but gives you more room than using two of the new style. 15 Rushmore still have pins then in 16 they changed them. H-D part 90201540 is for the kit. Kit is to change all 4.

Bucklist, What "harley levers" are you talking about? I can't find any OEM saddlebag fasters other than the ones that come on the bike.
