I can see your honda brackets fine. The bags that I received have parts that include brackets similar to yours and also have little metal clips. If I understand correctly, the bags are supposed to bolt into the top and clip at the bottom. I can tell that the bags would attach to one of the bolts and probably the clips but not to the other bolt because it is too close to the seat.

Does anyone know what I am referring to and/or have experience with the issue that I am seeing?
Thanks

No the factory bags are throw-overs. There are clips on the bottom of the bags that attach to the bottom of the bracket. They do not bolt on at all. That's why I was saying I don't know if these brackets would work for you.

Bear with me on the pics guys... I am still trying to figure out what I have and if it may have a chance of working at all. Just use your imagination! The front corner of the bag basically hits the back corners of the seat and thus will not reach the front bolt on the rear fender. It basically leaves me with only one bolt to attach the bags to. Which is by no mean acceptable. I will try and post pics but it's kinda hard to try and hold the bag in place and take a pic. I will try later though...

why did you have to move the turn signals...there is a cutout for them. what is the link to the mount? I am in the process of purchasing them and I don't want to order them incorrectly. THanks
