Advanblack Stretched Saddlebags

Just wanted to post up a quick review. Took almost 8 weeks to get them, but they finally arrived. Product was well packed, and included additional rubber grommets and a mod to install attaching screws instead of the 1/4 turns for an "anti-theft feature". Color match is very good...We're on the wrong planet for perfection...but no obvious runs or other defects. No instructions, but hardware, latches and lid transferred right over. The bags themselves were MUCH lighter than the OEM bags they replaced, but overall I'm pleased with the fit and finish. The only real issue is that my left side exhaust is at least half an inch further away from the fender than the right side resulting in some clearance concerns.

You can loosen the muffler clamp and move the muffler left or right to try and even things up.

Thanks! I'll have to look a bit closer...Everything seemed pretty rigid without much room for adjusting

Mine had to be adjusted a little also. Just loosen the clamp that holds the muffler to the header pipe and use a strap wrench to turn the muffler left or right and the tip will move.

Update

I tried to attach a photo showing the catastrophic failure of the latch mounting holes on the Advanblack stretched bags. Long story short, I sent Sam a photo and they sent me a replacement...Pretty impressed with their customer service
