    LOL, that's what discontinued means, no longer available.

    Is this a Kuryakyn product? There isn't a listing on the manufacturer.

    Maybe I should just send you mine with a "to do" list.

    Just teasing, but if someone makes the right offer I know it could be gone lol.

    Yes, It's definitely at time thing, I learned long time ago to do it once, saves time and money in the long term, In your case you probably won't have it long enough to matter lol.

    I haven't tied my bags together under the fender and have had no problems so far (8k miles). I think it would be helpful for sure but if shit don't crack, break, or vibrate too bad I'll likely leave it alone.

    Mort mine were just mocked up and not on permanent yet. They appear just a little lower at the rear. I’ll bend the tube to keep them level. It’s very slight. I also don’t like the mounting system. I moved the tabs a little and will turn down round spacers and through bolt rather than the supplied quick release garb.
    I then will weld on tabs attach filler panels to.
    so far all I’ve done is raise/ red roll the tabs at the strut and move the bag mounting tabs.
    I wasn't happy with the quick release bullshit that attaches bags to bracket frame but honestly have 8kk miles on them and they are fine.

    I used 1/2" solid bar as that was what I had.

    Or you can bend some conduit into shape and weld a few tabs...... this was one I made to mount my HD bags.

    This one isn't as fancy but at less than half the price, if you get creative, you could make it work.

    This is what you're looking for. It's made specifically for use with the Softail Conversion Brackets, and goes under the fender so you don't see it, but boy are they proud of that thing.

    Looks like that's the type that sticks out behind the rear wheel at the bottom of the fender like a trailer hitch would.

    Mort I need to know more. I was awake half the night thinking on something similar. I considered a lower bolt to the fender but really don’t like that idea. I considered a filler panel tan with a rubber bumper to go against the fender.
    does what you posted go below the fender?

    These might help with stability.
