Yamaha Saddlebag Bracket Kit
Note: This kit must be installed by a Qualified Technician.
This kit has been modified from itís original application to facilitate the installation of the Bad Dadís Extended Saddle Bags and the Bad Dad Stretched Yamaha Fender onto the Yamaha Road Star ģ 1700 platform. The kit contains components that will properly space the Bad Dad bags from the Bad Dad fender. It is important to note, however, that the addition of the Extended Fender WILL require an alternative turn signal arrangement (Not Included).
On applications where the Bad Dad Stretched Yamaha Fender will not be used, the rear Cross Over Support may show under the stock fender. May not work with rear axle covers. Will work with rigid or quick release sissy bar side plates.
Note: Exhaust pipes must be lower than rear axle.
Note: Loctite EVERYTHING!

1) Remove the factory backrest from bike. Remove the factory strut covers. If you are installing a Bad Dad rear fender on the bike, the factory Yamaha fender will need to be cut to make room for the new fender. If you are NOT installing a Bad Dad fender, proceed with Step 2. If you are installing the Bad Dad fender, refer to pictures 1, 2 and 3. Picture 1 shows the stock fender before any cuts are made. Picture 2 shows that the fender must be cut approximately 9 inches back from the rear seat bolt hole. Picture 3 shows the finished cut on the bike.
2) Install an upper support bracket using the holes in the side of the fender. Attach with M8x1.25x35 button head screw. There is a right & left side Upper Support Bracket. Picture shows the installation of the Right Upper Support Bracket.
3) Install "S" -Shaped brackets also as shown in the picture. Leave these loose to facilitate final saddlebag fitment.
4) Install lower support brackets to the inside of the frame at the rear peg.
Note: Remove the two bolts that secure the passenger footboard bracket to the frame. Re-install the footboard using the supplied M8 x 1.25 x 50 button head screw. Tighten the button head screws fully. Using the exposed thread on the inside of the frame, install the lower support bar with the supplied locknuts and washers. Refer to figure 2.
5) Assembly Note: It has been noted on some of our Road Star builds that the mounting of this bracket between the Footboard and the Frame can alter the gaps between the Saddlebags and the fender. This adjustment can be made if your particular build responds better to this location.
6) Install cross-over support using the (2) M8x1.25x25 bolts and nuts. See figure 3. The assembly order, from the front of the bike to the rear of the bike, is Lower Support, Upper Support, Cross-over Support.
7) Install Bag mounting studs through rubber grommets in bag. Fasten studs to "S" shaped brackets on upper support bracket. After bag is attached and properly aligned, tighten "S" bracket fasteners.
8) Finished assembly using Bad Dad's Extended Saddle Bags and Rear Fender.
