Well after proceeding cautiously and slowly, over a couple short broken sessions, I've installed the bag fillers/fender close-outs. I was not impressed with the condition they arrived to begin with (I decided not to return nor contacted seller as I really wanted to get them on so I will leave that be). The gloss black paint was not very smooth and exhibited quite a bit of orange peel. As a fitment review they don't close the bag gap or fender gap (top filler) as I expected them to. My tour pack latch barely fits by the upper part of the lower filler if the latch is pulled and bent to the outside. I set the uppers about 10mm 'up' perpendicular from the lowers instead of almost on top. I did line up the bottom of the lower filler with the bottom edge of the rear fender (up maybe 1/8") to put the lowers further toward the rear to provide more trunk latch room.
I did not install the upper most bolt for the brake side lower filler due to lack of room to get any device up in the rear fender enough to hold a nut between fender and ABS unit.
I installed a paint protection film over the fillers as I foresee, at least for the removable upper fillers, a lot of potential handling scratches. This film actually improved the finish and hid some of the issues.
The upper filler will not just drop between a loose bag and seat if a tour seat (wide passenger area) is used. The bags will have to be tilted out by several inches.
I installed about an inch long piece of black automotive door guard along the outer bottom of the lower fillers were the bags may rub while removing/installing.
For those contemplating these, take a real close look along the filler edges for gap sizing.
I intend to post better pics later.
