I just finished Re-Building a set of saddlebag frames made from electrical EMT pipe.

These are for my Yamaha XT250, but I have a similar set on my NX250, and KLR650.
I've never had a problem with them in any way.
Best of all, These only cost around $25.oo to build.

Pix of the set I built for the NX250 several years ago...




Here's a detailed video on how the ones for my XT250 were built..

Very nice and quite clever. I've watched some of your youtube videos in the past. Thank you for posting.

They came out nicely and certainly extends the bike's hauling capacity. Ride safely and enjoy your travels.

ThumperStorm: Thanks!

Muniac: Thanks! I hardly ever use the bags. My tail bag carries most everything I need for a day ride.
I do get a lot of use from my Topo Map carrier, and Drone case.
Both attach to the same frames.

It's just nice to see someone make something to enhance their bike and riding experience. Got to love enthusiasm and the motivation that follows. Keep up the good work and ride safely.
