Before you take it apart note that on the left front bolt that goes to the hand rail has a small metal part that holds the cable that comes from the lock, make sure you remember how it attaches. Nothing complicated just note where it goes.
I also did not need spacers. However my rack mounting arms were not correctly aligned, I had to bend them a little to fit flat/flush with each other. Mount it with the handles and the take a look at how the two arms align. They can be adjusted either with washers as spacers or by bending with a 2x4 piece of wood.

Duly noted. Thank you Sir, T
Farkles: A silly little word for things I know nothing about until I read another post and wonder "Why in the world have I not gotten this yet?"

You're welcome T ! BTW I just bought a set of Shad carrier mounting arms cheap used in case I decide to mount side cases. Although these are meant for a top case I plan to modify them to mount a small pair of pelicans cases . This way I don't need to build mounting and supports. A future project.
