    On the road! Finally!
    Mine are tight on my wings exhausts, I needed to rotate them a little get the racks to have clearance.

    Maybe add a spacer in - that is what the Kiwi needed to do to get around the his CJD Aux tank.

    Give them a ring, Al is a good guy.

    To post up pics you need to put them on a Photosharing website (eg Picsa) and share from there.

    The racks just touched my Wings mufflers, I ended up installing spacers between the rear mounting bolts and the frame (by the pegs)
    to get the racks to splay out a little, giving about 3/8 inch clearance.

    Which Wings are you guys using, the traditional oval shape or their NOS (non oval shape)?
