    I have a 2019 RoadMaster and wanted to take off the rear saddle bags to clean and polish. I had a heck of a time to get the bolts loose. I then heard that there are some bolts with a larger plastic or rubber knob. Much easier to loosen. I understand why they changed fasteners for the bags. Any help sending me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

    I bought a quick release kit from Amazon. Haven’t installed yet, but looking forward to the convenience. Price was a lot nicer that OEM.

    Let me know how it works out. I haven't been able to confirm compatibility.

    I’ll give you a link after I install them. Maybe by this weekend.

    Be aware that "some" have had issues with the OEM quick release style fasteners not being fully engaged and dragging a saddle bag down the asphalt.

    I am not that stupid....but came close enough for a participation trophy....
