I'm new to the forum but you share some great advice. I'm looking for a reasonably priced ($150-$300) set of saddle bags for my 2002 Mean Streak. It's obvious the bike was never really made with them in mind but I'm wondering what anyone has found to work best. Has anyone tried the Crusier Bag (http://www.cruiserbag.com/) It's seems like the large size would work well but I'd hate to have that bag bashing into my back all the time. Any thoughts?

Tx.

Thanks, I'm going to try the Performace Cruiser Bags from Saddlemen. Look like a fit and the style matches the bike. If you're interested I can let you kow how they work out.

Please do. Pictures would be REAL nice. :)

I had bags on my previous bike, but haven't convinced myself to spend the money for the new one. I'm still waiting on a seat and new bars and riser (backordered) :cry: .

Saddle Bags

I just purchased a pair of Leatherlyke Cross country bags for my
Meany and fit like they came with the Bike!
I bought them for only 429+shp and that was for the larger
cross country bags.
I can take them off when I out just cruising and not ruin the bikes
lines. and slap them on again when i need storage.
They are WORTH the money!
If you are interested there is only 1 place to buy these bags and
you won't beat the price anywhere on the the web.

Leatherlyke Saddle Bags

I will tak a few pictures of the bags and post them
this week.

Check out Accessories International...spk to AL.
Tell him Tony Gulla sent U.
The phone # is 888-725-3679 in Miami
The actual price inc shp was $434.98 with studs & conchos
and they are the CROSSCOUNTRY BAG which is the largest
of the 2 bags available.
I also bought a TFI fuel at a very good price..AND let me tell
you even if you bike is stock, it makes a difference in get up
and go..My bike used to PING will hell...NOT NOW!
They will also ask you to measure the distance from the bolt
holding on your shock to the farthest screw on the fender
support...which should be 11" that is important for the mounting
bolts to fit properly.

Looking forward to the pix. Thanks

On the TFI. Which did you buy?

Your bike is stock? What year?

I don't plan to change pipes or airbox at this time, but am always interested in a bit more power and better all around performance. :wink:

TFI..

go to Techlusion's web site and put in your Bike's info.
WWW.Dobeckperformance.com

I have a 02 Kawi Mean Streak 1500.
It is stock now, but next week I will have installed my new
MUZZY Drag-Style Cruiser Pipes and Cadmann Kit Air Induction Kit.
I believe you have to have a Kawi 1500 engine for it to work.
I can re-adjust my TFI to take advantage of better breathing
Ride Safe,
