Ok, I got a result I'm very happy with. Originally when I bought this bike, the Corbin bags fit right against the fender. Yes, the paint got messed up on the fender because of vibration but you couldn't see in there anyway. The bags now sit a few millimeters away from the fender. I used washers as shims to make sure the bags were perfectly lined up with the fender line when tightened down, so everything looks symmetrical. Some points are shimmed more or less than others by a washer thickness. There is plenty of thread on the studs to hold the bags on, and a little blue locktite or something similar is a good idea on the threads because of vibration.

I did have to remove material from the OEM side plates for the sissy bar. It was mostly cosmetic material for the factory set up, so that it looks pretty between the OEM bags and fender. The Corbin bags I have were hitting the OEM side plates in a couple of places before they were all the way onto the studs, so I had to cut away some material.

All said and done, I like this result better than when I got the bike. Now I can put my LED's in between the bags and the fender for some extra bling.

I will post some photos early in the new year, just to add to the database of knowledge and info on the forum.

Thanks to everyone here for giving me some insights and tips. It is all very much appreciated.

Cheers and Happy New Year!
