Saddlebag Guard Install

Hello! I am attempting to install saddle bag guards. These are the ones that came with a turn signal relocation kit. But for now I'm going to keep the turn signals where they are.

UNLIKE this picture, it appears that the bolts are lining up one on the coil/suspension bolt and second, the grab rail.



I am nervous to unbolt the big bolt on the coil/suspension. Can anyone tell me if this is safe to do, or is it going to cause difficulty? Also - anyone know the size of that bolt. The biggest socket I have in my socket wrench set is 15mm and that's a bit too small.

Thank you!

17mm on the nut.should be able to unbolt with no problem as there is a threaded stud attached to the frame and you aren't unbolting the bottom. make sure the bags won't interfere with your three wheeler kit.

Yes it's a nut, not a bolt. Make sure you put the saddle bag guard OVER the outer washer.
