Honda Rebel CMX 250 Saddlebag and Guard Installation

Locating and acceptable accessories for the Honda is sometimes difficult. I searched for a or more and read dozens of about a variety of saddlebags might fit properly and look Cost is always a factor so I was searching for the best value.

I settled on the Willie and Max Raptor Slant SB 801 ($90.99). I found the look suited my taste, but are a variety of slant saddlebags from Willie and Max with a of looks that should most. Willie and Max bags are by a variety of motorcycle suppliers, but the time to shop as the prices by as much as $25.

This slant saddlebag the Honda Rebel CMX 250 well. The of 12 wide x 9.5 tall x 5.5 deep are the that the Honda Rebel accommodate without having to the turn signals.

It would be unwise to use these saddlebags first installing saddlebag So that must be accomplished The best price I found for saddlebag guards is Jacks Warehouse ($54.95).

Jack’s has plain black guards ($39.95) The chrome saddlebag are manufactured by MC Enterprises which numerous motorcycle accessories.

you order the MC enterprises chrome guard it will come hardware, however, if you have a bar and luggage rack on your Rebel, the hardware mounting will not be long enough. Ace had the right longer bolts I required in stock.

The saddlebag guards are easy to but have an sunken bolt which requires two different a metric allen wrenches. If you have set for your Honda you will probably need for any future repairs so it would be to include them in your set. Once the saddlebag are installed, you can proceed with of the saddlebags.

Again, installation is easy. One can mount the saddlebags the passenger seat if the intent is to use the saddlebags occasionally. Since I to leave the saddlebags on permanently, I to mount the saddlebags under the seat. The seat must be removed.

This is accomplished by unscrewing the mounting bolts that are to the rear of the seat( almost it). These are 11 mm bolts are best removed with a wrench with an extension. these bolts are taken the seat is removed by pulling and to the rear. Be careful not to scratch the on the tail light. One will then that the seat has a piece on the front of it that underneath a mounting bracket.

Remember that this has to slide back into when reinstalling. Note that the brake light is easily accessible should you to add any additional lighting in the future.

the seat removed you can then and connect the leather-like mounting that connects the left and saddlebags. The bags come a small rope (shoestring) to them to be tied securely As I recall for the Honda Rebel should be adjusted so that it is the possible.

Once your are adjusted, you can then reinstall the This is the most difficult of the process as the bolts are not easily and it may take a minute or two to get them properly. It is slightly more if you have a luggage rack as uses these same bolts and holes.

I’ve included a few pictures of my Rebel CMX 250 to show the how the saddlebags Since I intend to leave on permanently, I decided to use some ties to insure the saddlebags little chance to move or get caught in the rear wheel. The for the Willie and Max bags said plastic ties were

That was not the case with me. the plastic ties negates the feature that is on these for easy removal, but I decided at for the short term, I was most in the security of the saddlebags.
