A little catch 22 huh?If I get you right the catalogue shows the bags on a streetbob but then doesn't list that as a choice,what a mess.How did they get the bags on the example they used?Anyway,when they say they are not compatable with the axle covers do they mean the back of the bags rub the covers?You can have a patch sewed on the back to protect it.A buddy had that done to bags on an old superglide and it lasted over 30 years.Just a thought,if I'm off base sorry.

Rear wheel adjustment

FIRST remove the left side saddlebag, raise the rear wheel off the ground and adequately support it here and then check the belt deflection at the loosest spot in the belt with the transmission in neutral and the motorcycle cold. Use a belt tension gauge to depress the belt with 10 lbs pressure. With the bike on its jiffy stand and without any rider or luggage and with the rear shocks pressurized to 10 psi the defection should be 1/4 to5/16 inch OR with the motorcycle standing upright without any rider or luggage and with the rear shocks pressurized to 10 psi the defection should be 3/16 to1/4 inch.

If deflection needs to be adjusted remove the right saddlebag, the heat shield from the header in front of the muffler and then loosen the muffler clamp and the rear muffler support bolts and remove the muffler and if it does not slip off easily spray some rust solvent around where the two pipes fit and this should then make removal quite easy.

On the right side of the axle remove the "E" clip from the end of the axle and loosen the cone nut and if the belt is too loose, tighten it by rotating the weld nut on the axle left side counterclockwise a bit, snug the cone nut slightly to hold the axle in that position and then measure the belt deflection and continue until deflection is where you want it. If the belt is too tight loosen the cone nut and rotate the weldnut a little bit in a clockwise direction and the snug the nut and measure deflection and do these steps until the deflection is correct. When the deflection is correct hold the weld nut on the left side and tighten the cone nut on the right side to 95-105 ft-lbs (128.8-142.4 Nm). And then check the deflection again to be certain that nothing moved while tightening and if deflection is not correct loosen and adjust and tighten again until deflection is correct with the cone nut properly tightened. THEN install a new "E" clip into the grooves in the axle with the rounded edges facing out. Replace the removed parts and you are done.

Remove rear wheel on 2012 flhtc harley

To remove a 2012 TOURING rear wheel FIRST remove the saddlebags, then raise the wheel with a suitable lifting device and rotate the wheel and inspect the wheel bearings. THEN remove left side muffler, on models equipped with low profile shock absorbers (FLHX, FLTRX), remove the left side lower saddlebag support rail and if ABS equipped remove the cable strap to releasethe rear wheel speed sensor cable from the rear brake hose and at no time ever left any magnetic force field exist or be close to the speed sensor or it will be ruined, remove the rear brake caliper but do not disconnect the brake hose, set the brake caliper on the passenger footboard or otherwise appropriately support it, remove the E-clip from the groove at the end of the axle, hold the weld nut on the left side of the axle and loosen the cone nut on the right side of the axle using an AXLE NUT TORQUE ADAPTER available from JIM's or H-D (HD- 47925), remove the cone nut and the adjuster cam from the axle, rotate the weld nut on the left side of the axlecounterclockwise until the wheel is loose, remove the axle from the left side of the motorcycle, catch all of the external spacer(s), caliper bracket, and rear wheel speed sensor (if ABS equipped) as the axle is removed, remove the caliper bracket from the anchor weldment on the rear fork, move wheel forward enough so that you can and slip the drive belt off of the compensator sprocket, if needed remove the brake disc from hub and be careful that the drive sprocket does not fall off and get damaged as you remove the wheel from the bike, mark the wheel and the disc for re-installation in the same orientation.

To install a 2012 TOURING rear wheel you will need FASTENER TORQUE VALUEs. The brake disc (rear) screws are 30-45 ft-lbs 41-61 Nm; (Do not re-use brake disc/rotor screws because re-using these can result in torque loss and always reinstall a brake disc in its original orientation); the rear axle cone nut (preliminary - 15-20 ft-lbs 20-27 Nm) (Final 95 to 105 ft lbs 128.8-142.4 Nm ) ; Brake caliper (rear)mounting fasteners 43-48 ft-lbs 58.3-65.1 Nm. If the brake disc was removed from the wheel ALWAYS reinstall it in the same orientation with the wheel as when it was removed and ALWAYS use NEW attaching screws and tighten them in a crosswise pattern to 30-45 ft-lbs (41-61 Nm), verify that the sprocket is square to and fully seated in the bowl area of the wheel, place the wheel into the rear fork with the drive sprocket installed, install the belt over the drive sprocket and then slide the wheel back to take up the slack, seat the brake caliper bracket on the anchor weldment of the rear fork, apply a light coat of wheel bearing type grease (H-D suggest silver anti-seize compound but this technician finds almost all seized, corroded axles were lubricated thus so do as you feel best) to the axle to the bearing bores and to the bore of the spacer sleeve, slide the axle through the left side of rear fork, the thin external spacer, the sprocket and into the wheel hub out the other side of the wheel hub and through the rear wheel speed sensor if ABS equipped and if ABS equipped ensure that the grooves on the external spacer, or index pin on the rear wheel speed sensor are on the outboard side or through the thick external spacer if not ABS equipped, the brake caliper bracket, and the right side of the rear fork, rotate the axle so that the flat on the threaded end is topside and with the adjuster cam section forward, install the adjuster cam on the right end of the axle, apply a light coat of SILVER GRADE ANTI-SEIZE (H-D Part No. 98960-97) to the inboard side of the cone nut but NOT the threads, install the cone nut on axle finger tight only, if ABS equipped route the speed sensor cable forward and outboard of the brake caliper bracket, continue forward following the top of the rear fork, rotate the speed sensor in a counterclockwise direction until the index pin makes contact with the brake caliper bracket, tighten the cone nut to a preliminary torque of 15-20 ft lbs (20-27 Nm), install the brake caliper and tighten its screws to 43-48 ft-lbs (58.3-65.1 Nm), secure the rear wheel speed sensor cable to the brake hose with the conduit clip located approximately 1.25 in. (31.8mm) in front of the brake hose crimp, adjust the drive belt using a belt tension gauge, final tighten the cone nut to 95 to 105 ft lbs 128.8-142.4 Nm, install a new E-clip with the flat side out in groove on the right side of the axle, on models equipped with low profile shock absorbers, install the left side lower saddlebag support rail, install the left side muffler and tighten its fasteners to 96-144 in-lbs 10.9-16.3 Nm,depress the rear brake pedal a number of times to set the brake pads properly against the brake disc, install the saddlebags and THEN road test the vehicle.

Is it possible to replace the leather strap on my husbands Armani watch for one with links?

You would have to visit a retailer who sells watch bands and have them show you compatible bands. There are tons of universal ones, but it depends on the width of the connector where the leather band joins to the watch face, and if they have something that will fit that width. It can take them a few moments to change it out, after you've identified what fits.

Is there a way that I can fit more clothes into a duffel bag?

There are a few things that you can do to fit more clothing into a duffel bag, you can use space or vaccum pack bags to get air out of the clothing. You can roll your clothes so that they are packed more tightly. If you are flying you want to keep inmind that while you can fit more in your bag doesn't mean you should because air lines charge a lot for over weight luggage.

On Saddlebags for 86 Shadow VT500

You do need brackets OR solid bags. Standard brackets can be recommended by the shop where you purchase. The brackets keep the bags out of the wheel and off the fender. ( I really wanted the real leather ... but I settled for the synthetic leather. $400 difference)

You might pay a little more at the Honda shop but there will be no quibbling about this or that. They know your bike and what will fit.

You can buy at other motorcycle shops but the stuff at the Honda shop is there to fit Hondas.

Thanks for using

Lacing Saddlebags

Yes you will need brackets. You can find them at your Honda dealership. They mount to your fender where the two fender bracket bolts are located. You take the two bolts out, line the saddlebag brackets up with the holes, then replace the bolts. It should take about 5 mins.
