Not only are these lid covers tight and smooth once you get them on, they install in seconds. And they don't leave behind any velcro when you take them off for show. I really don't get why one would buy any of the other velcro mounted bag lids, including the OEM covers, when they fit so poorly by comparison and are full of wrinkles. What's more, the price was right on, and the service was spectacular. No choice here.
These lid covers fit so much better than the ones from Harley Davidson. Nice and smooth fit and best of all no velcro and they are made in the USA! A little difficult to get on but well worth the effort.
These things are excellent, great durability, style and fit. When I pulled them out at first I thought they were way too small but I watched a video on YouTube stating to set them in the sun for a few minutes so I did and they went on beautifully. You do have to put a little elbow grease into it but they will fit. Mine are on a 2012 Street glide so Dennis Kirk should green light this product. I ran into one problem which explains the less one star. I found that the felt on the back of one of the studs was missing, no biggie I just added some microfiber cloth and remedied the problem. I I'd call mustang about this mishap and they are gonna do something for me just not sure what that is til Monday when they call. But this is an excellent product.
Put these covers on my '09 Street Glide. They fit great and you'll save some money over the HArley brand covers. Highly suggest buying these covers instead of the velcro mounted ones. I ordered the velcro mounted ones and sent them back.
These require a lot of force to install even when warmed up. I warmed mine up with a hair dryer so that it was more flexible. Even doing that, I busted about 8 stitches in the seam at the rear of the lid cover.
I got my Mustang Saddlebag cover and went right to work installing it. Anyone who says it went on easy got the wrong size. Of course there are no directions on the best way to install these so I hope to help the next customer who buys this. First stretch the cover by putting your foot in one end and gently pull up. Do the same for the other side. Put the front end (larger on first) and now comes the fun. Get one side on the back and roll back the last corner and pull out then down on the saddlebag. Once it grabs the last edge unroll the cover over the corner of the bag. You may need a heat gun to warm up the last corner. The key here is warm and be careful of the paint. I put a towel between them .
They look better than the HD lid covers. Higher quality and beautiful. Fit like they were custom made for my Road King. Before I installed the covers I left them in the sun for an hour. It made the install much easier, otherwise it would have been impossible to stretch the covers over the lids. I shopped around and once again, Dennis Kirk's prices were unbeatable.
Lid covers are perfect fit, easy to remove, and do not harm the lid in any way. A must for two up riding. My wife doesn't have to worry so much about accidentally scratching the bags. Have recommended to two friends that are also very pleased with the product.
I was impressed with the quality and fit on my 2013 Street Glide. I am using them to protect the lids from boot marks, however the style an color match my stock seat and really give the bike a nice look.
Quite a Stretch Literally but Great Look Installed
For these top quality covers to fit snugly and neatly the manufacturer had to make them extremely tight. Your mission is to- with the help of a patient friend- spend several minutes working and stretching to the limit to get them installed. We had to start, stop, take a break, and then try some more. We finally got them on after giving them about a 2 minute warm up in a warm dryer. Plus fit the front first then the rear outside corner and then tugging and working the lip you should finally be able to get them securely on. If you're in a warm climate it may be a lot easier but my unheated cool garage was difficult.
