I have recently put new 4.5” extended saddlebags on my 2017 Road Glide. I also have Vance and Hines dual slash cut slip on exhaust pipes. After putting the new bags on my bike, I noticed that the extended bags seem awfully close to the exhaust pipes. They don't touch but look awful close. Should I be concerned about the heat from the pipes being so close to the saddlebags? If so, what can I do about it to protect the bags? Any help and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You won't have any real issues as long as they aren't rubbing. I've had a similar setup for a few years and haven't had any problems.

Do you have any pics? If the pipes are not centered & seem closer to one side you can loosen clamps and adjust them slightly but if they aren’t rubbing I don’t think you should have any issues
