I started out buying "Nelson Rigg" tank bag for my ZX-14 from Dennis Kirk's Ebay store & was so impressed with it I wanted to see if i could find matching saddlebags to go with tank bag. I did a quick search on Dennis Kirk Website & found these, but was worried that they wouldn't fit due to ZX-14's design of tail section, but took the chance & ordered them, once they arrived i put them on & was happy to see that it would work out just fine. My Wife & i loaded up all the bags & took our first weekend trip on this particular motorcycle with no issues. the bags really did a good job of holding all our belongings & most importantly to me( they did NOT scratch the paint on tank/tail.) I would highly recommend these bags.
I received the bags and found them easy to mount with just a little diligence. They stay put while riding and hold a good amount of cargo or clothes for a weekend trip. The Spirit series has the inserts already installed so there was no fitment problems. They look nice on my 1994 Honda CB1000F and don't interfere with the exhaust. For my use, they are the perfect size and easy to remove from the bike when I reach the hotel. I rarely stay out more than 2-3 days and I always travel light. These are perfect for a trip to The Texas Hill Country from my home in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area. I got them on sale from Dennis Kirk so they were an absolute steal!
These bags are a good size for sport bikes. Enough room for the basics for an over night trip. The top loading is nice but the zippers catch if you try to pull the strap that connects them together to close the bag all at once. Simple fix. use both hands..one on each zipper. They secure well to my Ninja. Good value for the money.
