Is this just the seat itself or the seat cover? if its the seat assembly there should be 2 bolts holding the seat down located somewhere around the rear of the seat aprox 2 inches below the seat. if your talking about the seat cover you have to remove the staples thats holding the fabric down to the seat pan.

Need installation instructions for oem vstar 1100 saddlebags and mounts.


Two bolts on the rear fender will need to be removed.
Also remove the passenger Pillion(Seat). Normally one bolt in the back and the pillion slides into the driver seat. Pulling back on the pillion after removal of the hold down bolt usually releases it.

The brackets to hold the saddlebags straight and away from the rear tire/ brake disc. Mounts with shims to the two bolt holes on either side of the bike. (remember those bolts removed earlier?) Center the saddle bags by eye. Sometimes it is best to have someone hold the bike straight and center from the rear. If the bike is on the kick stand, it will not be easy to center the saddle bags.

Next put the passenger pillion back in place.
Check the bracket clearance and make sure no part of the saddle bags are touching any moving part. You can bend the brackets to adjust but usually not necessary. Just be careful with the chrome fender flares.
Those curved chrome rear fender shiny things. :)
You can scratch the paint very easily while working with them.
Use a cloth/towel where you can to prevent marring of the paint.
Really simple to do with minimal tools. Some of the saddle bag bracket kits come with longer bolts. Use them!

My 1100 Vstar I used the twist rods from a set of Shoe Stretchers.
Screwed directly into a kuryakyn foot peg adapter. Black with a triangular tip worked great. Heck of a lot cheaper too!
Nice thing about this arrangement, only had to remove the foot peg bolts. Then the rear passenger seat. Easy to adjust the angle of the bracket by loosening the foot peg either side. Pull up, push down or bend out to get proper position.

Good luck!
Hope this helps!
