  • Question about using the Amazon Softail brackets

    I read that people add a spacer to the chrome trim piece on the fender and bolt the brackets on that. Why can't they be bolted right to the trim piece, or even right to the fender? Like to have them tucked in a little tighter.

    I'm going to venture a guess that you HAVE to do it on the left side or your bag will hit your belt/guard.

    Then you WANT to do it to the right side so it looks symmetrical.

      If you don't use a spacer, your bags will not set level because there is also a bar that goes forward and mounts to the frame.
