    I wanted Docking hardware for my 09 Road King Classic for a detachable Sissy Bar (2 post). I purchased it, installed it and a couple days later I see dents in the lids of the leather bags. I figured it out that the lids are hitting the post on the docking hardware each time I open the bags. I thought that Harley screwed up. I called the Dealer and they told me that I should have purchased a hinge stop kit. There was no answer when I asked " Why didn't you tell me about the Hinge Stop Kit when I bought the Docking Hardware". So heads up if you don't want dents in your new bags.

    Yeah, I put the 2 post quick detach hardware on my bike for the sissy bar for my sissy wife. Two weeks later I had two nice little notches in my bags. Go figure. Went to talk to the stealer about it and ask why they didnt tell me about the hinge stops, and he asked me why I didnt ask him??!!?? Live and learn.
