    Hey all, is there a trick to lining up the holes for the 2 bolts on the inside of the saddlebag against the mount?.

    The inside behind the fairing drops a little and im struggling to lift it and line the bolt at the same time.
    Another pair of hands would probably do it but it's just me.

    loosen all the bolts and you should be able to lift the duck tail enough to get them started.
