Saddlebag Spacer Help

Can anyone tell me where these go?


Dimensions
19mm OD
7mm (center hole)
6mm thick


They dropped on the ground when I removed the saddlebags to replace the Saddlebag chrome trim on my SEI project.


I reinstalled the saddlebags and everything lines up correctly without forcing anything.
The Top interior saddlebag mounting, Inside & Bottom bolts don't have any extra length sticking out of the welded on stay nuts.


The puzzling part is there is only two spacers?


They don't appear on any saddlebag parts fiche? (Which I find odd?)




Hopefully someone can take a peek under their SEI/LTD (Don't know if they are on all 1200's or not)
To tell me where they go?


I hate extra parts.

Not the same as the half dollar size Collars that go through the rubbers inside the bag.


These chrome spacers were on the Outside of the bag somewhere??

I hate extra parts.
Would be same on Aspencades or Interstates as well as SEis or Ltds. as the differences are not related to saddle bag mounting. My Aspencade had no such extra parts.


Hard to tell from the picture, but are they solid metal or rubber with inserts? OD & ID and that part about 6mm thick (purt near 1/4") sounds like a bushing or part of vibration dampening mounts.


Any other aftermarket parts on the bike?


You say everything lines up I see, so I'm wondering if maybe they were something a past owner thought was needed or lost in the spaces (maybe just laying trapped in between stuff waiting for you to remove?) and just substituted something else? Is there a trunk relocation bracket in place, maybe a light bar around trunk?

Here is the bolt through the collar and the spacer.


Hardly enough thread left to thread into the bag guard mounting tab.

BTW. Both SEI's had the same spacers fall onto the ground when I removed the bags.


No aftermarket accessories on either bike in the saddlebag area.


Sorry for the multiple posts (I don't know how to add several pictures to a single post?)

do you see the ADVANCED button at the bottom of the text editor?
click on that, and slide down to Manage Attachments.

you can add up to 10 pix at one time.

if you are using a cellphone, go into Full Screen Mode, and you can do the same thing.

Dang if I know.


You got two SEi(s), they both had 2 strange spacers, and now you've "lost the secret"? So you got 4 free spacers now.

How is your post helping my question?


As I said "I hate extra parts". I am trying to put everything back on the bike that it came with. (that is my point of asking for help)
