I have a 2007 Blast. It really depends on the make of the saddle bags but assuming they are generic soft bags, here is the usual procedure.

Remove the seat. The connecting center straps for the bags will go under the seat and are held in place by the seat itself. Laying the straps over the top of the seat will allow them to shift and/or blow completely off the bike.

Adjust the straps so that the bags are as close to the edge of the seat while still hanging at a verticle angle. Too loose they hang too low. Too tight and they will compress around the bodywork of the tail section and reduce the usable space inside the bag or possibly damage the contents you fill it with. Once the seat is put back on that is usually enough to keep the straps secured from sliding front or back but depending on the placement of the bag straps you could place a strap behind a d-ring peg to keep the bag from sliding down towards the front of the bike.

Usually you need to nothing more to secure the bags but depending on the bag itself there may be a strap you can anchor the bottom of each bag to the passenger peg or a strap that connects the two bags across the bottom of the bags. Just remember to NEVER anchor the bags to the swingarm. It may seem like a no brainer but you'd be surprised at how many people don't think that far ahead and do it anyway. LOL.

Buell Blast electrical problem


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.
For more information about your issue and free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have nice a day.
