Hi Mike, Thanks for your advice with the saddlebags, Could I ask you what type of handlebar risers you used and did you have to replace the cables as well. Matt

Hi Matt, The risers were 4" rise with 1-1/2" kick back not sure of the brand . Just go on to CC's web site type in risers , your bike model . The part # is BA-7410U.
As for the cables no, I just had to spend a little time re routing them . If you get them let me know and I'll try to explain how to do it . ride safe, Mike.
PS I think its still 50% off shipping at the moment .

Thanks Mike, building a bit of an order to take advantage of the 50% off shipping, saddlebags, risers, tank protector and maybe number plate frame, anything else you can think of that is a worthwhile addition. Thanks again, Matt.

The list is endless Matt , Go for it . Just one request get a pic up of your machine when you can .
