my easy brackets didn't come with the longer bolts I needed, but I didn't pay anywhere near 25 dollars for them either(hardware store).EZ-Brackets. Cheaper and a more solid build to them. If you have a backrest Ghost brackets want to charge you $25 more for longer bolts.
EZ-Brackets if you call them they will include the longer bolts at no extra charge. When I called I explained about how there wasn't a listing for my 1600 with the backrest he said that it will fit they just had to send longer bolts at no extra charge. From what I understand after talking with the guy at EZ Brackets they are in the process of simplifying the intallation hardware "package" making it a single kit that has everything you need one way or the other.my easy brackets didn't come with the longer bolts I needed, but I didn't pay anywhere near 25 dollars for them either(hardware store).
Honestly its apples and oranges. I wasnt charged extra for a longer bolt kit for my ghost brackets and the existing hardware left over wasn't noticeable. The newer ones i got extended longer width-wise to fit even bigger bags and had round spools which look nicer than the older bolt-like looking ones on the GB's. Then again, that could be just the bolts someone purchased.I got the easy brackets for $150. Based on pictures of ghost brackets bolts, I think easy bracket bolts have a cleaner look.
