2013 Advanblack stretched saddlebags and fender extension

I have advanblack's stretched saddlebags and fender extension on my 2013 RGC. The problem I'm having is the arch between the saddlebags and stretched fender aren't making that nice even arch. The fender arch is about 3/4" lower than the bags. Any suggestions on how to get the arch to flow even?

Thank you. I watched his videos. I'll be trying his ideas to get the bags adjusted.

Contact Advanblack they have a new mold for the rear fender extension that fits and aligns. I ordered extended bags and fender extension few weeks back but they shipped me the old mold, contacted them and they sent the new mold. Been a great company to work with

I am looking at the Advanblack extended bags and the Hogworkz. There only about $100 difference as far as price. Is one of them a better product than the other? It's hard to make a decision between the two as far as cheap bags. I looked at Top Shop and they are way out of the ball park for me. I plan to do the fender extension also at a later date and will check out the alignment tricks.

Is your trunk also from Anvanblack? I like that the hardware matches the paint. Nice sled!

Yes the chopped tour pack is also from Advanblack and for the price is great really happy with it! They just started offering color matched hinges which look much better than chrome in my opinion. The backrest pad vinyl is crap though but I知 having it and seat recovered with some custom pattern so don稚 really care. I値l get a pic tonight of the rear showing the profile of the bags.

I have Advanblack extended saddlebags, extended fender fascia and their lower fairing speaker pods and I am very pleased with their products as well as their stellar customer service.
I`ve been dealing with Sam Chan, the Sales Manager, and he has been very helpful with everything.
I wouldn`t hesitate to purchase from them again.
That`s just my personal opinion.
