You should be able to find some soft bags that will fit, maybe even without supports to keep them off the wheel.
In the past, I've used the rear shocks to prevent wheel contact and put the yoke under the seat.
Don't know if that's possible with the S40 though.
I'm reaching out for advice again. I see pics online of S40s with throwover saddlebags, some with the yoke simply resting on top of the back part of the seat, others with the yoke running under the seat, like you'd expect.
But under that part of the seat on my S40 is a voltage regulator/rectifier with fins, wiring to the taillight with a quick disconnect, and rubber spacer blocks holding up the rear part of the seat. Daylight doesn't get through under there.
How can a leather yoke (maybe even overlapped layers) fit under that seat cushion? I'm finding small saddle bags that will fit the area between the shocks and turn signal without even using support brackets, but I don't get how the yoke can fit under the seat with all that other stuff there.
If that thing really is the R/R, they tend to run hot and must have some air circulation.
In that case, I wouldn't recommend putting the yoke under there.
You can put the yoke above the seat on the outside and the run a couple of heavy strings/ropes under the seat for safety and security.
Most new bags come with the extra ropes or straps to do that.
OR.....after riding a while, if that thing is not hot, then you could try running the yoke under the seat pan.
In most cases, I've found that there is more slack space there than you think. But maybe not always.
After these past months of getting blasted by cold Colorado air, I’m ready to get a windshield on. I’ve looked at Memphis shades bat wings and they look sweet but are a bit big for the c50 in my opinion. Has anyone mounted a bullet fairing to it? And if so what parts were required? Thanks!
Gonna keep it short and sweet, thanks in advance to anyone who does reply with advice! '07 Boulevard C50T
Not a professional mechanic, but have been doing my own work for awhile on vehicles to save labor costs. Went to pull the rear cylinder spark plug trying to find why oil is splattering on...
Hey folks new to this site. The internet is not kind to me when I try to research the Suzuki M90 and issues that have come across or the various non-existent aftermarket parts so I just wanted to touch base.
First ill cut to the chase- it was the kick stand sensor. The stand mount is ground...
Currently trying to find a good passenger luggage rack and back rest for a 2018 boulevard c50. Finding a lot of ones for earlier models, just want to get other peoples input and such on if they would fit the 2018 by chance or if modifications would need to be made. Any info would be greatly...
