    Good morning everyone

    I own a 2006 Sportster roadster and recently purchased saddlebags. I purchased the HD saddlebag support kit, part number 90799-94 and ran into serious problems. I was wondering if anyone else has run into problems or knows the tricks with this kit.

    The problem is it starts by saying "remove upper absorber NUT, washer and shock cover" Problem is every single sportster I have seen does not have a nut, it has a bolt on the upper shock absorber, and this kit thinks there is a stud and nut in place of the original bolt.

    Anyone know what to do other than return the kit for a refund?

    Thanks in advance
