Zeek The measurement from the floor to the lowest part of the bag is 16 7/8". The space between the top of exhaust and bottom of the bag is 1 7/8". Hope this helps you.

Would you mind taking a side picture (exhaust side)?

Also, would you mind taking a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the bag?

I'm hoping the bags will fill the gap between my current bags and my exhaust.

I hate the gap here as you can see with the red line. If you wouldn't mind getting me the measurement of the yellow line (the lowest point of the bottom of the exhaust side bag to the floor, while on the side stand):

I know the feeling... This is why I try to do major work over the winter. I HATE not being able to install something in my hand!

I hope you can get it installed before your ride!

With my batwing, I changed the way they bridged it (I bridged the 4 channel amp to mono instead of bridged to stereo), I got a better shield (long ride curved), changed the speakers to polk audio, and added dash mounted indicator lights. If I got it during the riding season, I would have gone crazy, but was saved by the fact that it was winter!

They will send you what you need, but they will come from China. At that point, with the inexpensive cost of bolts, I would just buy them.

They do stand behind their products, you just have to have time. I did my Tsukayu GPS batwing fairing over winter, there were a couple things little they took care of.

I am happy with the company, but it does suck when things don't work out perfectly. But, we do have to remember these are bikes that haven't been made in 10 years, and this is one of the few companies that still makes VTX specific parts. So, if they occasionally mix up parts (small stuff), I get it...

In the picture the bolt is literally in by 1 thread and it's still way too short.


Are they the bolts you already had in those spots? I had this issue with my Shadow, I took my bolts to Fastenal and they had stainless steel bolts in a longer length.
