I got them on the bike today. I'll go back and round off the edges of the mounts, cut excess thread off of the bolts, etc. next weekend. I also have to weld the extra mounting tabs to the rack (seen in photo#3 between the black painted loop, and the edge of the chrome luggage rack), and repaint it.

Total price list is as follows.

2 Seahorse SE720 cases from carrycasesplus.com $105.73
Side racks from ebay seller losi3030 $92.50
1/2" thick 12"x18" plastic cutting board from Amazon $11.00
Nuts, bolts, washers, etc from home depot $10.00

Total $219.23 Yeah, I went over by a few bucks... I wasn't thinking about shipping costs.

This could be adapted to just about any style of existing side rack. The losi3030 rack is very similar in design to the Triumph racks.

Looks good! I got the losi rack also. Can I ask how you keep the cases from falling off?

It looks like the top part hooks on, and the lower plastic pieces you turn to hold on. That it?!?

Yup. The cutting board is 1/2", and the tubing of the rack is a little bit larger due to the powdercoat, so it's a snug fit. I've been riding it back and forth to work for two weeks like this, and there has been no signs of the lower mounts trying to rotate due to vibration, etc. Also, it may not be clear in the photos, the upper mount has a notch cut in it to fit around the brace I added from the losi rack over to the bike frame (acually it bolts to the rear luggage rack mounts). This brace eliminates movement at the back of the rack, and serves to keep the cases from moving forward or backward, due to the notch that fits over it.

Here's a pic of the racks with the braces added. 1" x 1/8" steel. If you look at the photo of the back of the bag, you can see the notch in the top mount that fits over the brace.

I'm still thinking about drilling another hole through the lower rotating mounts, so I can keep them from turning with a spring loaded pin like in this thread... http://www.klrforum.com/showthread.php?t=10409

Just a heads up to everyone, I have a 2011 Bonneville SE with the TOR exhaust installed and the losi3030 side racks do not fit.

Nice product from losi3030 but they do not fit.

Looks like it's factory saddlebags for me.... ugh.

Nice job mayday! Those bags look pretty sharp. Now, about those butt balls on you seat!

Hah! don't knock 'em until you've tried them for a while. $5 worth of beads keeps you dry down low when it's really hot or when it's raining. It also turned the stock 2 hour seat into something that is tolerable for 8-10 hours. I've tried Airhawk, sheepskin, etc, but it's the beads that I keep returning to. Did I mention only $5? You can make two motorcycle sized 'pads' with one car shaped one, and some heavy fishing line (or light string trimmer line.)
