How do I eliminate the chrome struts which run down the rear fender?
There are currently a couple of options, both of which eliminate the option of using a saddlebag: Option A: Use our side covers, shock covers or aftermarket chrome shock, and exhaust hangers along with the Carlini bumper eliminator. You can see some examples in our Pictures section. We have not tried this combination ourselves but have had several customers who have done it. We did have one report of the fender vibrating against the Carlini part and damaging the rear fender. Option B: Use our side covers, shock covers or similar, and BUB stubbies or a similar exhaust which does not require hanging at the back of the muffler. NOTE: We are currently working on a product which will eliminate the strut but not require permanent removal of the saddlebags. Keep checking back with us.
