We're always touting our R&D department's ability to design products that fit the lines of the subject bike. Never has this been more true than with these saddlebags on the neo-deco designed Yamaha 'Liners. At first glance, the bags seem to flow into the bike and it's hard to tell where the Yamaha stops and the Corbin begins. Another beautiful piece of functional hardware!
We've taken an amazing 45 liters of storage and smoothed out the lines to visually integrate the saddlebags into the Roadliner's look. The esthetics camoflage the fact that our Fleetliner bags actually hold twice as much as the leatherite covered plastic bags available on the Stratoliner. Typical of Corbin engineering, the interior wall of the bag molds close to the profile of the bike to fit closer to the centerline than any other saddlebag made. This provides better load bearing, better balance, less width and a much cleaner look.
Corbin saddlebags are tooled up specially for each bike model so they fit perfect. Both bags feature top loading so contents can't spill out when opened and they will self close in the wind if forgotten. Notice how the Corbin mounting system keeps the bags close to the bike. We mold them around the fender rails and in tight to the fender. This allows the bags to carry weight in close for a better center of gravity and good balance. This design also keeps a narrower profile for less width to worry about when lane splitting.
Corbin's Roadliner saddlebags are designed to work with the permanent mount Yamaha sissybar or Corbin Streamliner trunk setup. We've created clearance in the fender strut area to allow room for either bracket kit. If you're running your Stratoliner without the sissybar, don't worry we've kept a clean look! Your saddlebag setup includes a set of painted "blanks" that fill in this space to keep a clean integrated look to your fender. Sorry, these bags to not work with the quick release sissy bar.
Our design team shaped these bags to work with your stock exhaust system, but they will work equally well with any system that has a profile lower than the stock pipe. Beetle Bags fit perfect and install simply with all brackets included. In the front, our bags are shaped to allow room for passengers legs on the rear footpegs and includes a heel pad to protect the saddlebag finish. Interior wall fits the shape of the bike to keep them narrow and carry the shape around the rear fender. When loaded properly the bike remains stable at all speeds.
Both bags come completely lined to protect your cargo and feature locking doors for security. The Fleetliner saddlebag set comes prepainted to coordinate with your stock paint job and includes the triple chrome strips on the sides. Both the single color and two-tone models are hand painted and pinstriped to look perfect on your bike. You can choose from a variety of cover materials for the heel pads, but we recommend the "Asphalt" material shown in these images. The texture looks appropriate and the material is extremely durable.
Capacity: To help you visualize what a tremendous amount of space 45 liters is, we've measured the Yamaha Stratoliner leatherite covered bags for comparison. Here's how it shakes out:
Corbin Fleetliner Bags: 45 liters each
Stratoliner Bags: 22 liters each
The Corbin Fleetliner bags appear slim and sleek on the bike, but as you can see hold TWICE as much as the Yamaha bags. Plus they're beautiful to look at, secure, weather proof and simple to install!
