soft paniers for the 919

Anyone using the Nelson-Rigg Spirit Touring saddle bags with their 919 and stock exhaust? I'm thinking about getting a set with the tail bag, but want to know if anyone's had issues with heat and their pads, or any other issues with the bags.

I run nelson rigg bags and love em! they make a very good product! I don't have the stock exhaust though, so I can't really answer your question. good luck!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I have a set of Dowco Sport soft bags. I've used them for several hundred miles with no problems from the stock exhaust. I'm now running Sato exhaust and have no experience with the Dowco bags on there. My Cortech tail bag is more than sufficient for my riding. You can see it in my Avatar.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Thanks. What kind of exhaust do you run, Shadow, with your Nelson-Riggs?

My exhaust is a two-brothers full system, set up like the 900RR. it's a 4-1, low on the right side so there is no contact between it and the bags.

Here's a pic minus the bags...

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Nice. I like the way the exhaust changes the look of the bike. Which windscreen is that?

The Nelson-Rigg soft saddlebags will work with stock heat shields. I rode with them on for hundreds of miles w/o problems.

the windscreen is a carbon fiber buell M2...it was semi-custom, I bought it from a guy on here. I believe that a group of WT'ers had a few made up several years ago. There don't seem to be many others floating around. it doesn't really do much for wind deflection other than keep bugs out of my gauges, but I like how it looks. I don't recommend this screen for cross-country trips! When I make another trip out to the east coast I plan to buy a much larger screen, a bigger screen will really help reduce wind fatigue.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Sounds good. I think I'll be picking them up then. Need more space to put crap when I'm riding. I'm tired of having to take the car on a perfectly good riding day just because I have to pick a few things up at the store that won't fit in the tank bag.
