Ill break it down in a simpler way:
1) No, they won't fit a full face helmet. Not even close. And one is slightly more narrow than the other.
2) Good for carrying beer. Preferably 6 pack cans. 1 six pack bottles and 6 pack cans can fit in 1 bag... Can do 12pack cans.. Dont try 12 pack bottles... No bueno..:D
3) you can fit a smaller backpack if you commute with them. A little tight but it`ll work.

However, if you hate the bags the bracketry can be used with other bags or even luggage with some simple drilling..


Yeah, throwing dimensions and math can leave some without answer... Hope that'll help in Layman's Terms..:D:D:D

I'm considering other options to use on the stock brackets so I wanted to see what size the Honda bags were and get an idea of what will fit/fill the space.

Thank you

Can anyone recommend a bag liner that fills the space in the OEM bags.

Thanks

Rod,

So, you are using OEM brackets with these bags? Post pics when you have them installed!!! Thanks!
The oem brackets seem to work best with anything that is flat on the back. The "Easy Strong" Tsukayu have the exact same capacity & dimensions as the "strong" only with a flat back. They should work out great. I will post pictures when they arrive! .....Rod

I'm wondering how the "Jumbo Strong" would look on the Valk? I should have researched more because I need luggage and there doesn't seem to be many choices for this bike. And these bags are $650 plus about $300 in mounting hardware from Honda. And then you pretty much need to keep the bags on all the time since the mounting brackets seem pretty hideous without the bags on them.. UGGGGHHH good thing I got the bike dirt cheap!

I ended up going with Viking Bags hard bags on OEM mounts. Total cost for everything was about $600 and the bags look like they were made for the Valk. I am very happy now.

I've really drug my feet on this project. Got my bags here & got the mounts back from my welder (took forever) who re positioned the tabs to the inside of the mount frame. I have repainted them due to the welding/grinding . Now need to get off my butt & mount everything up ! bdfpc you got any pictures ? Would love to see the results !

I used the OEM brackets and stays with the Pinnacle Viking Bags. The back panel was 12.5 inches tall and the entire back panel is usable (hinges at the very top) I had to rig a solution to secure these on the bottom.
