SADDLEBAG GUARD RAIL KIT

PROTECTING YOUR 2022 H-D SADDLEBAGS

I for one like saddlebag guards on my motorcycle. I recently got a 2022 Harley Ultra Limited and it did not have side guards on the bags as standard equipment.

 I decided to rectify that by installing Harley’s kit Part Number 90201902.

https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/shop/saddlebag-guard-rails/p/90201902

 These Guards surround and protect the lower portion while providing a traditional look for Touring Motorcycles.

 They are made of thick wall tubing and include cast mount clamps that secure the front part to the original saddlebag guards. They come pre-assembled so installing them is very easy.

My kit is Black to match my motorcycle. They are also available in Chrome.

The kit does come with instructions and I always suggest reading them even for a job this simple.

There is a right and left side rail, which is very obvious. The clamps also are designated right and left.

INSTALLATION

Do One Side At A Time

 
Start off by removing the saddlebags
 
 
 

Using the T-40 Torx and the ½ deep socket remove the inside bolt that secures the bottom rail to the motorcycle. It is a lock nut and will be tight coming off. Discard bolt and nut.

 
 

Using the T-47 Torx and 9/16 deep socket remove the nut on the outer bolt and discard the nut. It will also be hard coming off.

Install the new guard rail on the saddlebag support using new hardware. DO NOT FULLY TIGHTEN.

 

The front of the side rail will now be in place against the front saddle bag support.

Repeat the operation on the other side of the motorcycle.
