Well,
A) it did let you know that I (one whom has a many year's experience with GL1200s of all types) have no answer for you as to the spacers' origins
&
B) it pointed out that you now have 4 spacers for your parts drawer.


. Later guy!


(just so you know, I looked through every page of numbers and diagrams in parts book even closely related to the saddle bags, no sign of them)

As I said. I took the bags off the restoration bike to change the Chrome light trim (They are larger on the LDT/SEI's)

But it was a few weeks after I stripped the parts bike. (And I completely forgot about the spacers on the ground, until it happened to the restoration SEI.)



One spacer fell out from each bag.

Meaning. one was on each side of the wheel. After I removed the bags "After I took all the bolts out of both bags".


That is my point of asking LTD or SEI owners for help.

The Trim has nothing to do with the spacers.


Changing the trim is part of the restoration (They were rusty)
The trim is the reason why, I had to remove the bags to change the trim.



Here is what the trim looks like on the LTD/SEI's.

Okay, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some kind of aftermarket light bar installed. So, at this point, I too am at a loss. And if they don't show up on the fiche, my "guess" is; they don't belong.

The spacers go under the saddlebags between the saddlebag and the mounting bracket. I remember them from my 1200 when I took the saddlebags off to do work. The spacers may be part of a trailer hitch kit rather than stock.

The Mystery Additional Spacers is Solved.


Add On who copies everyone's design, Copied the now de-funked "Markland Brand" Hitch.


My problem arose because, The SEi I stripped "Didn't have a Hitch installed"
The Restoration SEi did (Markland hitch)


So my search for a markland hitch was fruitless.



I spotted the elusive spacers in the Add-on picture of what is included in their hitch.



I was able to locate the Add-On Hitch install instructions.


You can see where the spacer goes. "Between the bottom of the Bag Stay mount & the Trailer hitch mounting bar on the Bottom of the Stay mount.


Confusing the issue, (for me)
was the fact that I bought new OEM Inside bag bolts for both bags, (No extra threads sticking out the bottom or the sides of the stay, once mounted)
