  • I bought a new Saddle. Need help.

    I bought a really Kewl Saddle. I'm having trouble lining up the bolts. I don't want to cross thread them.
    This saddle was Very expensive.
    and I don't want to ruin my Bit***n Saddle getting the bolts out if something goes wrong.

    Anyone have any ideas on Good Bolts?.


    The part that sold me was the built in Highway pegs!

    Personally I would just JB weld it to the bike.... there’s nothing of value or practical use for ANYTHING under the seat ....

    let us know how it works out for you!!!

      Thanks for the suggestion. But I went with the OEM straps.
      Turns out they were long enough to fit around the frame.

      BTW- I keep my DQ coupons under the seat,(they have been stolen in the past,by unscrupulous RA members)
      I never know, when I'm feeling a urge for a Blizzard.

      I feel bad for you if your boys will fit in that little hole.

      You caught that too. (good eye)

      I bought it because of the Bit**n' Stichen' , and the forward hole for my boys to breathe.

    What do you think them straps are for son?!?!?! Run that front one tight under her belly and bring it back thru that metal ring then tie it like you would a necktie. Make sure its tight. That back strap you want to leave it a little loose in case she starts buckin.

      Sure hope it's being put on a DCT or you'll have a hard time with those quick shifts!

              I'm so litteral I just asked my wife (which rides horses) to read this and advise... She advised me it was a joke... I assumed he rode both kinds of horses.

                  Looks like it belongs on an Indian.
