I've got leatherlykes on mine and are very easy to take on and off. Just pull two pins to take on and off, they work with the factory trims pieces
Does your sissy bar attach like this:
what you means for sockets?Just an idea, but a few of the members have used sockets to extend their risers for their handlebars. Maybe you can use some sockets as spacers if you cant have the spacers you have chromed or it can save you money in getting them chromed if you like the way it looks with the sockets.
