SOURCE: looking for sportster hard saddle bag installation instructions

nstructions Difficulty: Moderate Things You’ll Need:

Step1 Determine what type of saddlebags you will be installing on your motorcycle. Saddlebags come in hard and soft styles, with each installed in basically the same manner. Hard bags tend to offer more security for your items but are a bit on the bulky side, while soft bags offering a little more flexibility. Step2 Check to make sure that your fender bolt area is clean and prepped for installation of your saddlebags. Both hard and soft saddlebags on Harley Davidsons are installed over the fender bolt area on the rear of the motorcycle, so clearing this area of debris and grime will keep it free of scratches and blemishes. Step3 Install any spacers or lifting brackets before you try and place your bags on your Harley Davidson. These spacers will keep you bags from resting against your exhaust pipes and will avoid damage to your motorcycle and to the bags themselves. Make sure they are installed tightly and spaced properly before mounting your bags. Step4 Open the saddle bag packaging and lay out the included hardware. The hardware will be necessary to properly mount your saddlebags to your fenders, so be sure that you do not misplace it. If your saddle bag comes with a fender mounting bracket, install it along the fender before proceeding. This bracket will be used to hold and stabilize your saddlebags, so it is essential that it is properly tightened and installed. Step5 Hold your saddle bag up to the fender and align the bolt holes in the saddle bag with the bolt area on the fender. Your saddle bag will have mounting holes in the side of the bag that will align with the mounting bracket. Place one of the bolts in the hole and tighten to hold it on. Put the remaining bolt in place and tighten them both securely once they are aligned correctly. Step6 Repeat this process with the remaining saddle bag. The bags should align evenly and be attached straight to avoid any imbalances or shifting while the motorcycle is in motion. Try and wiggle or move the bags to be sure your bolts are tight enough to prevent movement. Step7 Take your Harley Davidson for a short ride. Stop and check the fitting on your saddlebags and look at your bolts. Make sure nothing has moved during your ride and that all of your fittings remain tight. With just a bit of effort, your new saddlebags will make your Harley Davidson the envy of the neighborhood.

SOURCE: how can you get saddle bag open, that latch is

The solution to this problem, unfortunately, will involve the destruction of two hinge pins; since the hinge is sold only as an assembly, the entire hinge will have to be replaced. I'm sorry about that, but I thought you ought to know that before you start the repair.

Look at each end of the hinge (on the outside of the bag); you will notice a hole and (it may take a flashlight to see it) the end of a hinge pin within. Those hinge pins will have to be driven toward the center of the hinge until the hinge halves separate; that's much less than an inch, but is SEEMS more like 30 feet. Use a nail set that fits loosely in the hole, or a hardened nail about the same size with the tip ground flat.

Once the hinge halves separate, you'll find that you can lift that side of the saddlebag cover only a very short distance; the nylon fabric hinge cover on the inside keeps the cover from opening more than a VERY few inches. The hinge cover is secured by 3mm hex bolts; use a 3mm allen wrench to remove the bolts and the saddlebag top should swing open far enough for you to get your hand inside.

Take a flashlight and examine high on the opposite side of the saddlebag, inside the bag just underneath the cover; there are two catches covered by a broad plastic shield. Use your 3mm allen to remove the plastic shield, then use a small socket to remove the bolts holding the catches to the bottom part of the saddlebag. You can now lift the top of the saddlebag off and reveal the bottom of the catch.

The cover of the catch is secured by 1/4-turn fasteners, you'll see the phillips-head slots. Turn the screwheads until all fasteners are obviously loose; the cover can then be removed. There is a bent catch actuator arm beneath; push the top (free end, well, actually MIDDLE) of the arm toward the outside of the saddlebag cover, and the catches you removed from the saddlebag can be freed and remounted on the saddlebag.

You'll see the bottom of the release button through the catch actuator assembly; push it out, back to its' normal position. You're likely to find one of two things wrong: the actuator arm (4XY-2841A-00-00) is bent or broken, the lock assembly (4XY-W2843-00-00) has a bent or broken actuator tab or lever. A bolt may also be missing from either the actuator arm or lock assemblies; that would typically cause misalignment or binding.

Replace the hinge, reassemble the saddlebag top with the appropriate repair parts, mount and take a nice, long ride to relieve the frustration.

Removing main fuse on flhx 2007?


The "maxi fuse" as it is called is located on the left side of your bike behind the side cover in front of your left saddle bag. remove the saddle bag first by opening the lid, turning the two "bailing pins" counter clockwise with your knee up against the bag (so you don't drop it ). evenly and slowly pull the side cover off with your hands (no tools). this side cover has three pre formed pins on the backside that go into rubber grommets. be warned when it comes off it will pop off. be sure to place your bag and side cover on a piece of carpet, blanket or something protective. the "maxi fuse" is the orange large 30 amp fuse sitting out by its self to the right of the fuse box. pull it out with either your fingers or a fuse removal tool.

Locked left hand panier on Goldwing GL1800 2007 model


You will probably have to take the inside of your trunk apart and look at the release handle assembly.  But to just open your saddlebag door, there are 2 plugs in the floor of your trunk, one on each side.  Pull out the plug and there will be a release latch for for the saddle bag. 
Also, if you meet resistance when you pull the lever. Try pushing in on the door when pulling lever. If the lever does not have resistance, but the release in the trunk does, this means your cable is snapped.

Seat removal


The strap that goes around the seat bolts to the fender under the fender it's self or to the sides near the front of the fender struts or behind the saddle bags if you have them.
They are usually held on by either an allen bolt or a capped hex bolt.
If it is attached under the seat it is held by 1 bolt through both ends to 1 hole.
