Good job @EgeWorks . One question. Original exahust muffler don't fit properly with left bag? I see your exahust is shorter/lower? Did you have to remove it for this reason? Thank you.
Hey Lelc2 - that's right, with the standard muffler they won't fit with the 'symetrical' bracket provided. I'd already swapped to the shorty beforehand, so no issues for me, but you'd have to consider this. I measured VERY carefully before purchasing!

Ohh!!! What a pity. According to unit garage web symetric is compatible with Pure/Ugs exhaust...I guess it was correct... Probably unit mistook in this??? I ask them to check. Thank you

Please share if they answer. I am trying to sort out luggage options for a UGS and was planning to go with these unit garage bags with symetric frame, since they said it would work. They even specifically say UGS with low or high exhaust.

They said to me that low original exhaust ( Pure, UGS, Racer) fits properly. Even turn signals are ok.

After I asked you, I asked Unit Garage directly. They said the one I asked about could only fit with low exhaust, but that a different one would fit with high exhaust. Basically, the alternate is not symmetrical, the left side extends a bit further, past the exhaust. I'm not sure what to think about that but it's an option.

Very nicely done additions.
Thanks Gene - Unfortunately, we're still in lockdown here in mt part of the world, so have yet to get any real distance on the 'touring' mods. Hope that we're on the way out though!

Hi Ric,

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the non-symmetrical one would fit OK. Also, maybe clarify with them when they say 'low exhaust' will be fine that they aren't referring to their own custom 'low exhaust' rather than the stock low exhaust. I reckon it'd be pretty tight if it did fit, and probably hot exhaust right onto what is essentially rubber/plastic of the bag would reduce its life.

Finally fully out of lockdown here in Vic AU so I was able to give the 'touring package' a workout.

The dam in the background is the Thompson River Dam - link here.

There was quite a bit of dirt road, which was pretty sketchy to say the least, pot holes the size of - well big enough to bottom out the suspension and totally flatten my license plate holder. That was at least the only casualty:

No worries! I agree that while pics are great, sometimes the context and location are just as important.
