Got my goodies from the stealer. I got the Jardine quick disconnect backrest and Saddleman teardrop saddlebags. I got the backrest mounted but I ran out of daylight before I could start messing with the saddlebags. The question I have is, will the bolts that came with the saddlebags be long enough to make it through the quick disconnect hardware or will I have to get longer bolts? :dontknow:

Nope, bolts are too short. The longest one from the front may work in the rear but only without the spacer :edit:

Yeah I was just hoping someone else had some expertise in this so I could get what I needed before I started tearing things apart. Keep running out of daylight before I can get anything finished and I have no where to work on her except on the street.

OK next question is , does anyone know where I can find M8 bolts that are longer than 4 inches. I have hit just about every hardware, fastener and home improvement place around and can't find anything.:edit:

McMaster Carr has 8mm SHCS as long as 7 7/8". You will have to buy them in a pack of 5 or 10 depending on whether you want stainless or black-oxide steel. They have lengths from 100 mm (about 4") up to 200 mm in 10 mm increments.
