A few things that might be worth mentioning:
1) The bolts that come with the product have different heads than the fender bolts that come stock. I was able to reuse the stock front fender bolts but the rear was too short to reuse.
2) The brackets install outside the fender rails, not between the rails and the fender. While this is negligable and most likely necessary it's not as clean of a look as I would like.
3) The short bar is most likely going to be the best looking height while still allowing your passenger to be comfortable on longer rides. I have a larger Mustang rear seat installed and was concerned that it would not be tall enough to compensate for the added height of the Mustang seat. It is still a good height and doesn't look too high on the bike.
All in all I'm happy with this product and it should perform well.
