Sw motech blaze saddle bag install
on: June 30, 2020, 04:20:51 AM
Hello everyone

Has anyone with a 2020 model installed the sw motech blaze saddlebags?

I was installing mine tonight and can't get the left side bracket to fit. The helmet lock seems to be in the way of the bracket lining up with the bolt holes.

The right side bracket went on no problem. Not sure of I'm doing something wrong or if I have the wrong bracket.

Can you not take the helmet lock off so the bracket can line up?

The bracket for the helmet lock is still in the way. I emailed sw wotech. Hopefully they have a better solution than cutting the bracket off because that's not going to happen.

Welcome to my pain!  I'm kidding.  Only our 2020 US bikes have the helmet lock and when I was emailing GIVI they told me that they used the 2020 EU bike (the 2017-2019 rack works on the new 2020 EU models).  So all the luggage manufacturers need to come up with US specific kits.  I think we just have to wait for them all to come up with new mounting kits, or us to get desperate enough to cut the bracket off.
