R-Gaza Saddle Bag Guards

Installed the R-Gaza saddle bag guards today. The 15 minute job turned into over an hour. The welds were strong but not the prettiest. The left guard fit correctly but the right guard was a little off and pointed forward. Had to shorten a spacer about 1/4" to straighten it out. The spacers need to be painted to avoid rust. A couple of bolts were a little long. All-in-all, would I buy them again? Yes.

That's exactly what I ran into installing mine. The right side was a Btch. The fact it as 100 degrees outside and 150 in the garage did not help matters either. Really like them.

Mine went on no problem - getting things all aligned for the crash guards was a lot more finicky, but also went on smoothly once I test fit them once without the fairing and then R&R'd a second time after putting the fairing back.

I've had mine saddlebag guards on for a while but not ridden my wife on the back.



They seem to move the passenger's footing forward a few inches as their calf no longer rests on the front of the saddlebags.

What about your passengers' legs and riding on the back with the R-Gaza guards on?

I just modified the mounting of the rear-bag guards so that they no longer interfere with the passenger foot pegs. See the following thread for details: https://www.fjrowners.com/forums/10-...ml#post1225091
