Hi. Under or near the tailpipe, there are rubber and sometimes steel hangers that are placed onto the sides of the pipe structure. These move with the assembly to provide little flexibility during travel. These hangers also are there to keep the pipe/muffler assembly from dragging or hanging to low. When the hanger assembly becomes unstable or damaged, it will allow the tail pipe assembly to hang low or sometimes drag the ground when you hit a bump. The necessary actions are to raise the vehicle high so that you can inspect the exhaust tail pipe assembly for broken hangers or steel bracing devices. replace any rubber hangers that may be snapped or missing form their respective locations. If you are uncomfortable with raising the vehicle, i would take the unit to a local muffler/exhaust shop for the inspection.
I've got a 2007 Shadow and recently put on a set of saddlebags. What you do is use a large allen wrench or star wrench on the seat strap to take out those two bolts, and then you slide the seat towards the back of the bike (or perhaps you need to slide it to the front, I forget, its just the "picture-hanging" connection, <=0 is the shape of the hole on the seat, and on the bike beneath it is a peg, with the seat hole large enough to slide the peg through, but once you shift the seat to its natural position the head of the peg is at a place too narrow to come off, hence the sliding motion to remove it) . Then it is smooth sailing, just lay your saddlebags over the peg with the seat removed, and try and put the seat back without disrupting the bags too much, which can be hard since its a pretty snug fit. Hopefully that helped, I don't know if the request was talking about post market support frames or something
I dont think I would use adhesive because of the vibration. Have you considered using a picture hanger? the short brass ones with the little divits on the bottom? I know that would mean permenantly attaching them, but they would be invisible from the front.
here is the link to the manual if you need it;
hope the picture helps - yes it is just supposed to be stuffed in the hole - all the ones i have seen have the same thing. ????????
Hope this helps:)
