Angry Factory Triumph Saddlebag brackets

What the heck is up with these brackets?? I purchased the factory hangers from my dealer, cause it seems it is virtually impossible to find proper fitting aftermarket ones, and downloaded the installation instructions. My dealer sold me the A9528030 brackets. I told him I have the removable backrest and he said this is it. When I read the instructions, it doesn't say a F#$%in word about the backrest or how to install on the pivots for the backrest. Do I have to guess? Am I missing some info somewhere? Is there another kit I have to buy? That my dealer does NOT know about!!! I cannot seem to find any info on this. I like my TBird but trying to find info on stuff for Triumph is like dealing with the Secret Service or Dept of Defence!!! Can anyone shed some light on this matter? I just want to install my saddlebags. And one other ?. Are these brackets supposed to swing out or something like that? They kinda seem like overkill if they don't. I am going to go mix myself a drink.

Get the instructions for the back rest. There is a lot in instructions about fitting the back rest with the bag brackets.

You need the instructions for both the backrest and the bag mounts. The parts differ depending on whether being used together or separately. The Standoffs are different when mounted with the backrest and the bag mounts than just the bag mounts or backrest alone. Take both sets of instructions which have the parts inventory and compare the parts from what you have and what came with the mounts to see if you have everything and the correct length of the fender bolts.
