I have sort of inheritted a ST1300, need to replace the hard saddlebags. Does anyone know a reasonable place to find them? Used or salvage is ok.

These are expensive to replace almost no matter how you go about it.


Whats wrong with the ones you have? It might be cheaper to fix them....


Did you look on ebay?

I guess thats where one would start...

New OEM components are available. Dealerships can obviously order what you need, for a price. Also, Ron Ayers Motorsports and bikebandit.com are good places to start. You can order seperate components if that is what you need. Be sure to order model year specific as they will come the correct color.

The problem with the ones we have are they are very scarred up. Was hoping maybe to find a salvage place that may have some.

Yes Redfish is right "at a price" you can find the new ones. But when you see what they want you may be in for a shock.

Personally I would be covering mine with fake black walnut contact paper before I paid what they are asking.

But you might luck out!

Check with a body shop and see what they would want, to repair and repaint.

I prefer having damage insurance on both side . . . " fake black walnut paper " . . . probably would be good against buglery.

My right side got scratched up pretty badly when the bike fell over while parked on a gravel shoulder. The slope was such that the bike was not leaning over onto the side stand and got blown over by a passing semi.

Grrrr

Still makes me mad.

But, I decided to leave it in that "pre-disastered" state so as to avoid the odds of having another similar incident.

(Big grin)

Actually, I'm going to have it sanded out and repainted but, I just haven't gotten a round TUIT.

If the bags are really scratched up but not broken, what about X-line (http://www.linex.com/) or Rhino Linings (http://www.rhinolinings.com/)? Some have colors, can probably cover heavy scratches and have durable finishes. It might be a better cost alternative to buying new.

Mine got scratched in my trailer.

I rough sanded it and a site member painted it for me.
I bought the paint and sent it to him, as he had the same color bike and needed some paint.
I'm not sure if he ever painted his, though.
