Saddlebag Leverss-Rushmore Models

Just a heads up on this. I bought a set of the gloss black saddlebag levers from a local dealership, and found that the screw hole on one of the levers wasn't even threaded. No big deal, I had to use a tap to cut the threads, (10-24 IIRC), and all is good. Just make sure you check them first if you decide to go this route.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll check them both before I attempt an install after I get a set. Good looking out ?

Yep. And I forgot to mention that the powdercoat was gumming up the threads on the lever that was threaded. Had to chase that one to clean it out.
