Want to know what the best aftermarket saddlebag replacement safety bolts are for your Harley-Davidson touring motorcycle? We've tested several aftermarket bolts and want to share with you our #1 choice and recommendation.
You are likely aware that pre-2016 model Harley-Davidson motorcycles came with flimsy 1/4 turn pins that secure your Harley saddlebag to your motorcycle. Harley-Davidson had recalls and lawsuits reference these 1/4 turn pins over the years and bikers were actually losing their saddlebags going down the road. This is a serious hazard and not worth the risk. Harley-Davidson is not going to take care of you, so you'll have to protect yourself on this one.
