1. Before removing the stock exhaust system note orientation particularly of the support bar between the two muffl er bodies (Figure 1) and the muffl er clamps. If necessary, using tape or another easily removable means, note the orientation on the stock support to ease re-installation. 2. Remove the four 1/2″ lock nuts that hold the support bar to the stock muffl ers and remove the stock support bar and bolts (set the nuts. bolts and support bar aside as they will be used later). 3. Using the 9/16″ deep socket, loosen the clamps holding the muffl ers onto the head pipes and remove the muffl ers from the head pipes. NOTE: May require assistance and the use of penetrating oil. 4. The stock muffl er clamps may be re-used. However Vance & Hines recommends replacing them with new clamps (Harley part number 65283-94). If using the stock clamps, be sure the T-Bolt does not twist out of the groove during tightening. This could allow the clamp to loosen with use

Begin by removing the front fascia and front skid plate on the vehicle as shown in figure 1. Save the fasteners as they will be used later to re-install the front fascia and skid plate. 2. Remove the 8mm bolts on both sides located inside the front tires and on the ends of two horizontal tubes on the front tube frame as shown in figure 2. 3. Place the mounting plate (A1) inside the front tube frame. The tabs with the slotted holes facing down. The slotted tabs should align where the
two 8mm bolts were removed in step 2. Reinstall these two bolts at this time thighten to just fingertight. Install the two 1/4-20 u-bolts (B3) and locking hex nuts (B1) and flat washers (B7) at thism time see figure 3, do not tighten down at this time. so the plate can be adjusted for position see figure 2. 4. Place the rear support bracket (A4) into position
and attach with the two 5/16-18 x 3/4 hex cap screws (B6), flat washer (B5) and locking nut (B4). Adjust the position of the support bracket so that it comes in contact with the frame tubes and tighten the fasteners see figures 3 and 4.
Make sure the support bracket maintains contact with the rear frame tubes and tighten down the two front 8mm mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts to a recommended torque of 12 ft-lb (17 N-m). 5. Attach the fairlead bracket support (A2) to the front frame tubes see figure 5. The support bracket attaches behind the front tubes. Space the bracket away from the tubes using the spacer brackets (A3). Attach the brackets using the 1/4- 20 u-bolts (B2), lock nuts (B1) and flat washers (B7). Before tightening the u-bolts make sure the bracket is in the correct position by fitting the front
fasica into postion and checking location. Tighten the nuts to a recommended torque of 7 ft-lb (10 N-m). NOTE: If this kit is being installed on a 00 to 03 Honda the wider fairlead bracket (A2) will need to be used. This will require the use of the
wider u-bolts (B3). The spacer brkts (A3) will not be required when installing the wider fairlead brkt

Installation 1. Ensure that the tail section of the motorcycle is clean and dirt free. 2. See the Service Parts illustration. Using a T27 TORX drive head, remove the two screws holding the tail section underside shield. 3. Install the saddlebag bracket (3) as shown, reinstall the screws and tighten securely. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 108 requires all motorcycles to be equipped with side reflectors. The mounted saddlebags will cover the factory-installed rear side reflectors on these vehicles. Reposition, or have a dealer reposition, the original rear side reflectors supplied with this motorcycle or apply new ones. If this is not done, the loss of visibility to other motorists may result in death or serious injury. NOTE New reflectors (Part number 59256-84A) are available from your Buell Dealer. NOTE When removing adhesive residue, take care to keep from scratching or damaging the reflector, mounting bracket or surrounding parts. 4. Use a thin flat blade, like that on an X-Acto knife, and carefully pry the reflectors off of their mounting brackets. Remove the adhesive residue from the brackets and the back of the reflector. 5. Mount the new reflector relocation brackets (4) to the stock reflector mounting brackets as shown. Attach each relocation bracket through the slots in the stock bracket with two screws, flat washers and lock nuts from the Hardware Kit (5). Slide the relocation bracket to the rearmost position and tighten securely. 6. Remove the outer release liner of the foam tape on the relocation bracket. Mount the stock reflector squarely to the bracket, and press firmly in place. 7. Remove the passenger pillion (and pillion cover, if mounted), and set aside. 8. Position one of the saddlebags to the side of the motorcycle tail section with the Buell logo facing out, and to the rear. Hook the mounting pocket on the back side of the bag onto the saddlebag bracket mounted earlier. Repeat for the other saddlebag. 9. Bring the saddlebag straps up and over the tail sectiion. Pull the right-side straps up through the buckle eyes on the left-side straps, remove any slack and fasten the hook-and-loop material. 10. Note the points where the saddlebags and straps contact the motorcycle tail section. Two lengths of clear protective tape have been provided in the Hardware Kit. If desired, cut and fit lengths of the tape to those areas of the tail section to prevent damaging the finish. 11. Replace the passenger pillion (and pillion cover if desired). Position the front tongue on the pillion overthe saddlebag straps
