I am trying to remove some of the weight from my bike so I decided to remove the King Tour-Pak and install the docking hardware so I could put it back on for trips. It is HD # 53804-06. First the instructions say that it cannot be used with the layback license plate. This must be a legal issue because the layback plate doesn't interfere with the installation or removal of the Tour-Pak. So I am thinking that having the plate layed back under the Tour-Pak makes it a problem for law enforcement. Anyway, here is my question. The instructions call for the installation of two spacers on the rear saddle bag mount but nothing on the front mount. The rear mount in its stock position does not interfere with the docking and the only thing I can see that this would do is make it harder to take the bags on and off. The rear mount would contact the bag first and you would have to push the front of the bag into the front mount. Am I looking at this wrong? I could understand spacing out both the front and rear mounts but why just the rear? You can download the installation PDF of the part number above to see what I am talking about.
