Just bought some bags for my bike. Got the bracket/guard also. I've got the honda backrest/rack already on the bike and am having a problem. The bolts given with the bracket aren't long enough and I really think I need a spacer for the rear bolt which goes directly into the fender.

Has anyone else installed bags with the backrest/rack on? What did you use?

Thanks

You can always get longer bolts from the hardware store...just take one with you so you'll get the right size & pitch. As for the spacers, I don't know if the hardware stores will carry those or not. You might be abl to make some out of a steel hollow pipe or something.

Hope this helps some.

Check your local hardware store. The "Do It Best" local hardware store near me has a whole selection of chrome nuts, bolts, spacers, etc in metric and SAE sizes.
