Ease of install: 3
Would buy again: yes
it doesn't look bad even with the small pad, but you can definately see where the larger pad will look better. Installing with the cobra saddlebag mounts already installed was a bit more tricky than it needed to be, but fewer parts needed to be interchanged. I recommend the use of locktight on the mounting bolts. Installation required modifying my saddle bags to slip over the mounting brackets which unfortunately means that they are not longer removable without the use of a knife or an allen wrench. However, the modifications were minimal and not all that invasive- you really can't see the change. Perhaps wrapping some finishing tape arround the cut and sewing it in will add a nice finished look to the process. The comment about mounting outside saved my bacon. thank you.
