Does anyone know if the sissy bar from the Fury will fit on a Saber. I just bought my Saber and don't want to put the side rails on fender. The sissy bar from the Fury looks real sharp and looks like it would fit. What do you all think.

The Fury sissy bar requires holes drilled to mount to the frame so I doubt our fender frame is the same as the Fury.

I went to dealer to look as Fury Sissy bar. Ill bet you could make it work.
Looks like holes would be under rear seat and if you screwed up it would never show.
I think I could make it work and I am not a bike mechanic.

Very nice job. I think that looks really good on the Sabre. I agree the fender rails would not go well with the Sabre lines. You need to post some more pics of the mod and help some fellow riders follow in your footsteps. As a bonus reward you get to name the mod. Again, NICELY DONE..

Thanks for the compliments. As for the mounting brackets, i made them out of some aluminum flat bar i bought at the local Menards. I used the existing fury sissy bar mounting locations, flipped my seat over, lined the sissy bat up to were i wanted it and made sure it looked good. Then i took the flat bar and bent it to follow the contours of the bottom of the seat. On the rear of the seat i used the bracket that holds the seat to the fender. There are a few mounting points to use. For the from i used the mounting points that the strap that wraps around the top of the seat mount to on the underside. Make sure you get the brakets you make as close to the bottom of the seat as possible so you dont touch the paint on your fender. You also might have to flatten out the curve of the sissy bar a bit. I thought it was to curved and didnt flow with the fender well, so i took a rubber mallet and gave it a few hits to get it the way i liked it. Put the seat back on and there you go. It is very sturdy so if you need to but weight on you wont have any problems. I would take some pictures for you but we are in the middle of a major flood up here in minot, nd and dont really have time right now. I will get some pics of the mounting brackets when i get a longer break from sandbagging.

Nice work, would like to see some pictures of what you did for your mounting brackets on the bottom of the seat when you have a chance.
