Default Suffering from CRS disease

65 years old has caught up with me. A while back, I bought some new saddle bag screws to replace the old pins they had to hold the bags onto the bike. So here comes the CRS part. Does anybody remember what the name of the company was that made the male/female allen screw head that you used to secure the bags to the bike. Can't find my extra allen wrench I bought with it, and also can't find the tool kit that came with the bike.

Other than that, EVERYTHING is cool. (wife too me to florida for my 65th birthday. Did the Richard Petty driving experience at Daytona International speedway) Talk about a pucker factor!

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

I've got CRS too! If you bought the kit rather than doing the DIY fix you most likely bought the Brukus one.

For your tool kit just pack a 10mm wrench and a collapsible metric allen multi tool.

I agree with Ammo, i.e., you probably have Brukus SaddleSecure; see http://brukus.com/cgi-bin/p/awtp-pro...rts&item=46028 . Witchdoctor is a reseller of this same product; see http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/1429/vi...lebags-sc-387/

The tool that comes with SaddleSecure is a T40 security bit. You can get another one via Brukus; see http://brukus.com/cgi-bin/p/awtp-pro...rts&item=37273

If you want just a bit, you can get this one from Brukus: http://brukus.com/cgi-bin/p/awtp-pro...rts&item=41133

When I got my SaddleSecure, even though I haven't lost the original right-angle Torx security bit, I bought this Wiha bit:


. That lets me use a regular 3/8" ratchet to take off the saddlebags. You'll want a good one like that, because I've read that the cheap Harbor Freight security bits, for instance, often have the center hole not really, um, centered.

Cheers,

Bill P.

Ammo_umb! That's it. Thank you thank you thank you. I'll take the advise on the tool kit too. Hell, even lost the tire pressure gauge that was in it. Anyway, thank you very much for taking the time and effort to help me pull my head out of my butt. Thank God I'm still good looking!

You can go to hardware store and buy the parts to make up a kit. You would only need two bolts one per bag to make sure you keep them on.
