Just bought this bike, love it. BUT..... I've been to 2 dealers and nobody can figure out how to detach the KQR 28L saddlebags. There was no manual or instructions in the bags and the instructions for the bags as accessories for the 650ABS don't work (they have different mounts).
Anyone have any feedback?
I've not taken mine off of my 2-week-old 2015 LT model yet. I've thought about it but it just makes sense to keep them on as I use the bike for commuting and use the bags
to hold my lunch and other small items. Perhaps one day I'll pull them off just to see how it rides without them.
As for your question, you should be able to swing by the dealership and they'll no doubt be glad to explain the removal process to you. After all, they just sold the bike to you and little favors like showing one how to operate the bike is part of the sale. Other than that, their PDF is here
; I'm not sure if it's been updated since you last looked but the ABS & the LT models should
use the exact same
frame and mounting system for those bags.
Question for you (and other late-model owners) though... As a fellow 2015 LT owner, do you have a hard time finding the sweet spot
for the key now and then? I find that I need to put the key into the hole and move it in and out - fractions of an inch - to find the spot where the tumblers will finally allow the lock to open up and grant me access to my stuff in those bags. (Wow, part of the sentence really sounds bad....)
