C-10 Antler ?
« on: September 18, 2018, 07:43:26 pm »
'99 C-10 runs great
'05 C-10 in pieces

Broken left antler on '99.
Replaced with left antler from '05.
'99 hardcase did not want to fit.
Are there differences that would keep this from working?
Thanks,
frenche

Same part numbers from '86 through the end of production, so they should work.

It works...it’s just pilot error...I deal with the same thing...and, it seems like on a regular basis...can’t get the antler rail into the groove on the bag...I’m sure there is a specified procedure...I just futz with it until it works...I’m sure somebody will chime in and help us both... :truce:

The angle that you start the bag onto the antler is critical. I struggled through the first few times until muscle memory took over and they go on every time now.
If you don't have time to do it right, when do you have time to do it over.                                                                17" wheels, Nissin 4 piston calipers.1kg Sonic Springs.Cartridge Fork Emulators. KB Brace. Galfer brake lines  Free power mod.

I install / remove the saddlebags all the time.

I have found that in addition to the slight angle Pbfoot uses:

- First have the lower latch in the open position
- with Pbfoot's angle, start with the bag about a half inch off towards the rear of the bike
- engage the antler tabs onto the antler rail
- slide the bag forward to align the lower latch with antler latch mount
- pivot the angle down to where the lower clasp will grab the antler
- close the lower latch onto the antler

- DONE

Works like a charm for me - YMMV
