    Saddlebag Mount/Guards?

    Hey all!
    Iím going to be leaving for a trip to Kentucky (a good 10 hours from where I live) in two weeks and am planning to buy some saddlebags for a good amount of storage. The problem I donít have any supports to keep the bags out of the rear tire! My question is:
    Will a system made for the Fz8 fit on my 2009 fz6? I have a good opportunity to grab some for cheap but no way to check if it will fit for sure.
    Thanks!

    I highly doubt they will fit.
    Here's a CHEAP possible solution: https://www.sportbikes.net/forums/2506383-post14.html
    I dont still have my 2007 FZ6, otherwise I would let you know what size PVC pipe works best (the 04-06 and 07-09 had different passenger pegs).

    Do a search on here, there's been a handful of DIY saddlebag support bracket ideas posted

    Thanks!
    I figured it was a long shot but oh well! Ill probably try the PVC option sine its so simple and genius around town first and decide whether I should fab something else.
    Thanks again!

    I have soft sided saddle bags, and although they don't sag enough to actually hit the tire, I use the PVC option as well. Simple fix, cheap, and they just stay on without any fasteners.


    Side note, ...I just came back from a weekend trip to southern Indiana for the Madison Regatta hydroplane boat races...Kentucky is just across the Ohio River, not 10 hours away! JK of course.
    You Indiana folks are just like everyone says...super friendly and welcoming. Plus I never saw a goat walked like a dog - that was something!
