Showed up yesterday, but I did not have time to put them on. I'm out of town for work until Friday. Hopefully I get time Friday to put them on. If I do I'll take some pics and post them up.

Had a little time this morning so I threw on the bags and fender. Absolutely thrilled with how it looks. I didn't want the long swooped out rear fender as I have limited space in my garage with parking 3 vehicles and my bike so length was an issue. Silly I know but the mini rear fender looks perfect to me with a 26" in front. I've never seen a full size Money Maker but being 7" longer than the mini would just be too long for me. Took a big chance buying these and having them painted by The Factory Match but they were running a killer deal I couldn't pass up. They are a little shorter height wise vs. the full size version as well and this was my second concern. I'm running AirFX in the rear and fully aired out the bags are just under 5" off the ground. Total length tip to tail at ride height is 9' 4". Just enough to squeeze the bike into it's parking spot. Here's the pics. Let me know if anybody needs a specific pic and I'll try to get it.

For you guys with 13 and down bikes, is there supposed to be some kind of support for the rear bag rail? The newer bikes look like there is a support piece that runs down from the tip of the rear sub frame to the bottom bag rail. Mine didn't have it as I bought the bike used and it had dual exhaust, not sure if that has something to do with it. I'm going to a single side dump exhaust.

I've got this piece I had powder coated that ties the back ends together and attaches to the rear fender.....

Since the bags and fender are for a 14 and up I didn't know if there was anymore support pieces I needed. Only 2 bolts holding each rail on. Seems like it should be a little more beefy considering what its supporting.

Damn that looks good. Im very in between on black death or Mini money makers but this may have sealed the deal.

Will the bike still move when its aired out?

There’s tons of room. I may even do a rear lowering kit to get it down further. I can take the front down almost 2” more since it’s a short neck. Right now it’s just a hair higher in the front than in the rear. Pics don’t do this justice, it looks 10 times better in person. I can’t believe somebody hasn’t done a 26 with these yet. Or maybe they have and just don’t put pictures up anywhere online. I couldn’t be happier, big sigh of relief. Lol

Thats what i wanted to hear. I like the laid out look when parked but want to be able to get home aired out if needed.

Whats the plan for the audio? Saw your selling all that too.

That was a big deal for me too. I’ve seen a couple of guys stuck and unable to ride do to air ride failures.

It was nothing special, came with the bike when I got it. Going to keep it simple. 8” + horn in each bag and a 6.5” component set in the fairing. Going to use the contrast cut XBS Baller grills that allow you to mount a Beyma horn in front of the woofer in the fairing. Not sure on amp yet, haven’t really had time to even work on everything else I’ve been so busy. At least that’s the plan at the moment. Still trying to decide on a tank skin set. I’m picky about how the tank meets the side covers.

Our build don't sound to far off. I'm doing a 26" with a bolt on neck and front and rear air. Planning on Mini moneys makers with everything blacked out.

Audio i already have a Kenwood X898 head unit and a JL Xd400/4 amp. I'm trying to sell my Hertz HSK165xl speaekers. I want to go with Mmats and horns in the fairing. and DD vo 6x9s in the lids. I'm planning to run them all off the Jl 400 amp. Its underpowered but i already have it some im going to give it a try. Id really like to try the new Focal Amp thats rated at 175wx4 @ 4 ohm.

Anyways bike looks BA.

Dieselhed, your "center stand" switch has 3 wires? How do you connect it to center stand with 6 wires?

Not sure as I haven’t got that far. I had a fitment problem with my Bad Dad front fender and sent it back. Waiting on a B Cool fender to get here so I can finish setting up the forks. Are you using the MRI stand? If so, I took mine out of the box and they supplied a toggle which I’m not going to use. There are 3 wires going to the toggle, I assume those 3 wires go to the JnR switch instead. I’m not entirely sure. Let me know if you find out.

Yes I'm using mri. And it has a toggle switch with 6 wires. I think need to use a relay. I will report when I get the switches.
