Tsukayu VTX saddlebags

I put the stock exaust back on my bike, and the top muffler touches the saddlebag in the front for about an inch. Anyone else have this issue? What did you do?

C exaust

I thought about that one time, even tried it to a point, bolted up just fine, but my floorboards did not like them at all, so I took the C exaust off and sold em

c exaust

On my 07 T, it would be a big mod for me, dont have a shop I can work in. If I could use bolt on parts I would try it, Thanx! Im hoping there is some kind of adjustment in the bags, when I talk to Tsukayu they say "they fit R model, you have T, you muss change sumeting" like I didnt know that. The R and the T are the same, exept for the factory bags and windshield.

I have about 4 inches of clearance with my V&H Bigshots. I bet the big factory cans would probably hit on my N also.

I would try to loosen the mounting bolts and shift the bag around (up & down) to gain clearance and re-tighten the bolts.

Check that the bag is pushed all the way in and pay attention to the cam lock I have a bent one on rear and falls into fender.

The mount where the cam goes in is also bent.

I am waiting on tsukayu to get me a price so I can order both parts.

I had the N/F dual exhaust and had to get rid of them so I could put saddle bags on my X. I wanted big bags and the dual pipes infringed on achieving that.
