I've got the stock heat shield on the right side, and a Dan Vessel -style bag support on the left side.

I don't mind making a harness for them, but I don't want to to a whole lot of hacking on a $200 set of bags, just to get them on the bike.
The big issue is with the heat coming of the exhaust, if you can sort that, then it may be worth getting in touch with Wolfman directly. They used to do a fitting kit to fit the bags without racks, but withdrew it after problems with a couple of people fitting them directly across the exhaust, despite warnings, and then wondering why they had a hole burnt through. If you understand the risks, they may still have some fixings in stock and might supply.
