Wild 1 saddle bag crash bars

Hoping someone can help me out. I'm looking to put on a set of fat rear crash bars to match the front one. I have 19 rgs. I emailed drag specialties to see if I need anything in addition to the Buffalo bars they sell. They told me to contact a local dealer. So I called my indy, who is an Auth dealer, and inquired. After ten minutes of him looking up parts he said they don't make them for a special. I guess cuz bags are stretched? Ive seen a few people post their fat bars of diff brands on here. Do I need to buy other brackets? Or do they normally just bolt right on. These are the ones I thought would fit. Thanks in advance for any input. Meant in tilte buffalo bars

I got this info from Dennis Kirk's website.

Made from 1.25 in. diameter steel tubing
Made in the U.S.A.

NOTE: For 2014 & up Harley-Davidson Street Glide/ Special, FLHX/FLHXS and 2015 & up Road Glide/Special, FLTRX/FLTRXS.
Harley-Davidson OEM part number 90200504 and 90200505 right and left saddlebag supports are required.

Looks like they will fit.

Hope this helps

Yup. That's the model in the pic. And when I called an Auth "dealer" he rattled off it wouldn't fit. I'll grab those. Thanks

This reviewer left the info I needed. Just as I thought I read somwhere, I'd need a few bolts, and grind the factory bag bracket because stretched bags use a bar that was never designed for a rear crash bar. Seems easy enough.

Interesting comment about the stretched bags using a bar that was never designed for a rear crash bar.... On my current and previous bike, both Ultras, I changed just the bottom of the bag to strteched bags and didn't have to do anything with the crash bar part of it.

Well I think the brackets can support either bag. I can only speak of my rgs bracket, which is bolted to the bike down low on both sides. For me to add the crash bars I need to cut the front bracket and slide that piece into the crash bar, bolt it together, and then bolt crash bar to the Lower and upper hole that's under the seat. What's so stupid is drag specialtys makes a 7/8 rear crash bar that comes with the new brackets, crash bars and bolts. In the 1.25, they only sell u the crash bar. Why not sell that package as well?

Ok. I did miss the fact about the difference in the front end of the support bar that the bag rest on. Makes me wonder if you can pick up a used lower support bar from an ultra cheap and not have to deal with a grinder and the extra work. Would make it easy to move to the next bike then. Just a thought.
