Mark,
I went through the same thing after getting my bags installed with the stock exhaust, I wanted them lower. I found that you don't have to go to a 2 into 1 to get the bags as low as you want them. There are many 2:2 exhausts that sit just as low. Just look at the design of pipes, if the front/bottom pipe comes straight back, they'll sit a LOT lower than the stock exhaust.

For example, take a look at the two exhausts on HK's site. If you look closely by comaring the height at the rear axle, the 2:2 actually sits a little lower than the Sideburner. I have Rush Racing 2:2 on mine now, which look just about exactly like the HK 2:2.

Here's a pic of mine for reference...

I can fab my own mounts so I can adjust a bit but not enough to run them with the stock pipes for sure.
Have you seen the Tsukayu Patrol bags? They are good quality, emulate the look of the HD bags, and will come with mounts.

Those are pretty tight looking! I am concerned about their brackets though. They are using the dual pipe exhaust that makes the bag mount up as high as the fender top. I am looking to drop the bags down as far as possible, they do sell them without mounts too so I could still fab what I need and they are nice looking bags.

Mark,
My bags are Tsukayu strongs and use the same brackets. The bags come with no holes, you have to drill them yourself so you can place them wherever you want. My bags were originally fit to the stock exhaust, then I went lower so mine have two sets of holes. I just plugged the old ones up.

Just loosely bolt the brackets to the fenders, and then tape a 1x4 to your top exhaust pipe and set the bag on it. Line the brackets up and mark and drill.

Once you do the exhaust side, whats the best way to duplicate to the other bag? Just take them both off and place them side to side, and mark the holes on the other?

Yeah, remove the brackets from the fender and tighten them down on the bag. Tape the right side's brackets to your left brackets (the top part of them will be touching so it's easy to tape and line up), then place both bags on a flat surface like a table and mark the other bag.

Oh, and you'll want to cover the insides of both bags with painters tape for easier marking and to prevent scratching.

Man am i liking those pipes and the other ones in the link. I gotta remember I can't see the pipes when I ride and for me, $500 will take me to a lot of places (repeat often to slow the jonesing). They will look cool on your bike and sound cool too.


Plan for tomorrow and live for today.
