It looks like there is a bolt (#4) on each side that needs to be removed.

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.

How do I install Saddlebags on a 2005 Mean Streak?

various ways mate you can get throwovers which litterally throw over the rear fender under the seat(over the seat if prefered.) you will need brackets which are bike specific to stop them going into the rear wheel. you can get quick release brackets so you can remove panniers at your destination. go to cruiser customizing and they have all the info and accessories you need.

I cant remove the seat on my 87 gv1400

Remove the saddlebag lids, undo the 2 bolts just behind the shocks, one on each side of the seat. These are the only bolts that hold the seat on. Lift the rear of the seat about 6 inches to release the front tangs. Raise the front to the vertical and remove the 2 air lines from the front right side of the base and the one at the rear. Seat should now be clear of things attaching it to the bike. Join the worldwide Yahoo email group for these bikes via and ask some more questions.

How does the seat be removed to access air lines for the shocks

Two bolts, one either side of the lower rear of the seat, you have to remove both lids from the saddlebags (panniers) to gain access to them. Once undone, lift the rear and pull the front of the seat backwards. There is two plastic "pins" that secure the front of the seat in position. With the Gt, you don't have to worry about the airlines to the seat, on the LX there is one airline to the rear of the seat and on the LXE there is the one at the rear and two at the right front side.

Got saddle bags and rigid supports for my 95 intruder and have removed seats, but have no idea how to attach brackets/bag. any help, I'm lost, thanks

if there are bolts holding the rear fender to the frame at the side of the seat (2 on each side), remove these 4 bolts and offer up the saddlebag brackets. the bolts then go through the ends of the brackets and then back into the frame of the bike and then on in to support the rear fender.
It might be an idea to purchase longer bolts as they may not be long enough with the added depth of the saddlebag bracket.
make sure they are tightened up as the bolts also hold the rear fender to the frame of the bike and if the rear fender is allowed to move it will crack the plastic.
hope this helps

A bolt is underneth the driver seat at rear. Hard to see. Maybe pull off driver seat first the rear seat - be sure you are using a soft saddlebag
support. Don't get bags caught in wheel

How do i install saddlebags on a 2007 honda shadow vlx vt600?

I've got a 2007 Shadow and recently put on a set of saddlebags. What you do is use a large allen wrench or star wrench on the seat strap to take out those two bolts, and then you slide the seat towards the back of the bike (or perhaps you need to slide it to the front, I forget, its just the "picture-hanging" connection, <=0 is the shape of the hole on the seat, and on the bike beneath it is a peg, with the seat hole large enough to slide the peg through, but once you shift the seat to its natural position the head of the peg is at a place too narrow to come off, hence the sliding motion to remove it) . Then it is smooth sailing, just lay your saddlebags over the peg with the seat removed, and try and put the seat back without disrupting the bags too much, which can be hard since its a pretty snug fit. Hopefully that helped, I don't know if the request was talking about post market support frames or something

Changing rear fender on 2003 fatboy

Here's my 2 cents... you need to remove the seat, saddlebags, disconnect battery, dsconnect the wiring harness, remove the signal lamps and the hardware securing the fender. There are torque values u need to know when installing the new one. This is all in the service manual for your model. I would go to the dealer and get one, you want all the specs correct and thats the only way to get em
