Non HD 4-point docking plates for RGU

I want to make the TP on my RGU removable. Had I thought about it, I would have had the dealer add it in when I bought it. I'm seeing a lot of 4-point plates around the internet for around $100 and I would just get the TP mount later on, but in the fitment section they all read "09-13 FLTR, FLTRX, FLTRXSE" not one says FLTRU. Will it fit or do I have to just suck it up and give HD $550 for the full kit including the plates and TP saddle?

It will work but you also have to get new strut covers to mount the 4 point docking hardware, the covers are different on the RGU. I made my tour pack detachable, however; I'm not sure why, I never take it off. I bought everything separately from eBay and craigslist and saved a few hundred bucks.

I put mine together with aftermarket parts from Ebay. I have a 2011 FLTRU. Docking plates look and work fine. The TP mount started to rust underneath so I blasted it and powercoated it black. Looks better now anyway. I did not put strut covers back on. I dont think it looks bad without.
I have the full write up on here somewhere with part numbers if it will help.

I bit the bullet and ordered the HD kit. Thankfully I shopped around and found the exact same stuff, same description, same part numbers for cheaper. The HD online store wanted $549.95 for the QD kit and another $99.99 for the wiring harness kit. Got both of those kits PLUS the storage cases for my lower fairings from Board Tracker for $610 and I'll just do it myself.

Annoying how you can get the same parts from a 3rd party distributor cheaper than directly from the manufacture when that 3rd party still makes a profit, shows just how much HD price gouges for everything.
