Just put on my swingarm mount saddle bag and I can hear rubbing over my exhaust, anybody else encounter this issue or know where its rubbing? I can't seem to locate it

Are you referring to a set of Saddlebags or the single Swingarm bag that for the Vulcan should be a Left-Hand version thus no interaction with the exhaust?

I used twist ties to secure and pipe insulation over the swing arm to alleviate the rubbing. :D

I'm guessing he meant hearing the rubbing noise over the noise of the exhaust, not that the bag is actually over the exhaust...

here is my bag mounted for reference

Thank you truckie, I put about 100 miles on the bike this morning and was able to tighten the bag a little more afterwards. If that doesn't alleviate my issue I'll resort to your method
