I want to install the largest hardbags possible on my 2004 VTX1300s. From my online hunt the best I have found for the price are the Tsukayu Strong large hardbags, holding 40 liters each! The only provision I am concerned about is that, from my understanding, you have to have the tail lights changed to mounted LED tail lights on the hardbags. Also, will those bags interfere with the passenger floorboards? Anyone have any advice?

Welcome to the board!
Bookmark or save to your favorites folder, these websites, http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77
This is the NEW VTXOA Garage, a sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX. http://www.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX. Also, for you 1300 guys http://vtx1300tips.com/VTX1300TIPS.htm another fellow VTX Riders site.

There is also a helpful Search icon in the users Toolbar just under the VTXOwners Association banner
Click the “Search” drop down and select “Advanced Search”

Now, enter your keywords and select a single forum to search in

Select 1, and only 1 "Forum" to search in at a time, or at all.
For example, "Best airbox" I would only search in the "1800 Tech Board"

That's the basic way, you can limit further by using some of the other "Drop-Down" menu's like if you know the thread you are looking for is only a week or so old, etc....

The purpose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…

Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...

Rider66, as Spike said do a search and you'll find pic's of someone's Strong bags that have 37-39 Ford replecia LED lights that look very similar to our tail light and are placed on the bags. IMO that's about the best I have found so far.

I have the strong bags on the R model and if your careful you don't have to change your lights. But if you have stock exchust you might have a little problem. With stock exchust they have the dumbo look too high and too large. I install cobra long shots. There nice and low. Which make the bags mount and and your able to slide them back.

Now I have the Jumbo Strong on my Suzuki C90 and they are BIG and I think that they would not look good on VTX1300.

I did install Kury LED signal, took about 30 min to install and the cost of $125.

I've help other on the site over the phone PM if you want to talk. To me it's easier than me trying to type.

I have pictures of both if you like.
