    Bag mount adapters?

    If I have "Touring Bag" saddlebag mounts, which have the claw style, and I want to use "Krauser Seat belt" type, is there a clamp on adapter I can put on the mounts, to attach the latch, in order to use the old Krausers?

    I think what you're looking for can be found on the MAX BMW parts fisch. The part number is: 46 54 1 234 511.

    THANKS! That's it. The thing says "no clamps"; I wonder what that means?

    BMW changed from the seat belt type latch for reason, they tend to be alittle less reliable than the clamp type.

    I have a R75/6 with the seat belt type latch. I've gone through 2 pairs of the male part of the latch, they tend to wear then the bag wants to fall off at unoportune times.

    At BMW gatherings you will see people with the old style Krauser bags with a strap around them or another method to keep them from falling off.

    Yes, I use straps on mine. On the newer ones, the claws are pop metal and tend to crack. That is why i am looking to go back to the older style.

    You're right! But that stuff likes to pop, in the most inopportune way!
