    Vitpilen saddle bags

    Has anyone installed the new saddle bags (linked above) that are now available in the shop on this website? I’m curious how the sit on the bike.

     

    Secondly, has anyone purchased anything from the shop on this site? How was delivery/shipping?

    Disclaimer – I’m own a svartpilen 401 but believe these should mount fine given the frames are the same.

    I’ve bought stuff from the shop. Actually I try to buy all my parts from them to support this site. The shop on this site is really just https://www.ktm-parts.com/.

     

    The guy(s?) who run ktm-parts / aomc started this forum (if I remember correctly he owns a svart 401). I’ve talked to him on email, he seems like a good guy.

     

    In any case, delivery has been good. Prices seem about the same as elsewhere online. I bought the husky bar-end mirrors, service manual and some other small items from them. I have a style seat on order from them, but it is backordered.

    Awesome! Good to know! Are you referring to the dvd service manual? If so, how is it?

    The Vitpilen 701 frame is different from the Vitpilen 401, I’d try to verify that it will fit the Svartpilen 401 before ordering…

    The service manual is ok. Not the most detailed manual and the dvd part is annoying (to me anyway), but it’s better than nothing.

    The bags look silly either way but be careful if you install them this way, you’ll have to place a heat shield so the stock exhaust doesn’t burn through the bag. The inner plastic on my bag started to melt. The bags take away from the styling the bike whether mounted correctly or not.

    of course it looks silly, you mounted them backwards

    interesting, it seems like you would be unable to seat a pillion with those mounted.

    Unit garage duffle bag on mine. I used the husqvarna rear bag carrier as the mounting point (https://www.ktm-parts.com/21012978030.html)
