  • Model


Some Harley-Davidson® luggage is made of leather. Fine leathers or other natural materials WILL gain "character," such as wrinkles or wear, with age. This is normal. A fine, aged patina and character wrinkles are a sign of the extremely high quality materials used to construct your luggage. The appearance of scars or marks on the leather are a result of using natural leather panels and should not be thought of as an imperfection. Use Harley-Davidson® Leather Protectant P/N 93600034 to protect your investment.

H-D Detachables Leather Saddlebags is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Bags-Ordinary Hardware Great bags and design but average hardware. $1400 in Australia for the bags and mounting kit. Looks great with bags on, not so good with bags off. Bolts used to mount supports not chrome and does not look good. But can buy the chrome covers!! Must have chrome covers for bolt heads if running without bags. Just saying for the money, they should be included!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 13,000 Miles and still love them! I've had these bags for two years now and have had very little for complaints! I'm not a fan of bags being on my bike so being quick disconnect is a big plus, and YES they are quick disconnect! They remove and install in a matter of seconds once installed properly. I've NEVER had an issue with them not working correctly. I've put on about 13,000 miles in the sun, rain, night, and day and they are very nice. Good amount of storage and everything stays dry. Even in a storm or two. I have them set up with the docking for these bags and the docking for a quick disconnect backrest. It works great. The only issues I've had were minor. If the bags are empty you might get a slight vibration noise at the docking points. Also the buttons on the rear of both of the bags came apart on me. I will have them replaced, just haven't done it yet. There is no risk of them opening up due to only those buttons. The straps on the side secure them yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not really detachable I had Dyna Detachable Bags (#90181-08A) installed by the dealer on my 2009 FXD. I had throw-overs with chrome supports on a previous Dyna but wanted the detachable sissy bar which theses bags are compatible with.They look a little wide on the bike, but have a good carrying capacity. HOWEVER I would certainly NOT call them detachable. I road my bike home and tried to detach the bags. I released the locks, the pins retracted, but the bags would not budge (in terms of sliding back to detach). I was afraid I'd knock the bike over as I pulled, pushed and struggled to slide the bags rearward. NO LUCK. Now I need to make a return trip to the dealer to get the problem solved. Overall, an expensive disappointment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are detachable..... Dealer installed. The first time I used them, 6.5 lbs and under 7 the other bag. Pins all in place, latch locked- so all good- right? At 70 miles, Car pulled along side and points to back of bike... Both bags had fallen off! I found one-seriously trashed from being run over; that had the latch in the locked position. Warranty not covering. Not my day!!!!

I had a dealer install Dyna Detachable Saddlebags #90181-08A on my 2009 FXD. They will not detach.

I rotate the locks and the pin retracts, but the bags WILL NOT BUDGE in terms of sliding back to detach them. Did the dealer mount them wrong? Am I trying to detach them wrong?

Female buckle attached to leather saddlebag

My buckle (female) detached from the saddlebag. I have gotten a replacement before. I need the female bracket and plastic bracket to attach to the saddlebag. Does anyone know the part number so I can get this part?

I have a detachable sissy bar, can I have the deatchable saddlebags and the detachable sissy bar on at the same time?

Don't really like sissy bars or saddlebags, but when I travel with the old lady I need to make sure she don't slide off. So I got a detachable sissy bar which works great. We're traveling more often so I need saddle bags, can I get the detachable saddlebags for my 2012 Fat Bob and use them at the same time with my detachable sissy bar? Can they share the same docking parts?
Asked by: thirteenjc
They use different docking points. So you'll have the ones that are already installed plus an extra. Figure 1.2 shows this in the dyna detatchable saddle bags PDF.

Saddlebag bracket installation guide missing

Hello, I bought the detachable saddlebags for my 2013 Street Bob. In the box was included installation guide for the fender bracket. However, no sign of the insruction sheet with the kit for the support arms. Can you send me an electronic copy ? I would appreciate. Thank you
Asked by: Landcruiser
You probably solved this issue already, but for anyone else looking for the instructions for the lower support bracket for these bags, look for J04386. Here is the direct link from Harley:
