I purchased some Highway Bar Soft Closeouts P/N: 2881125 for my 2018 Chieftain Darkhorse. I spent about a half hour trying to install them on the highway bars - a job I thought would take a couple of minutes. The material that wraps around the bars seemed a little short and the buckles did not really line up. Anyway, I finally got them installed.
Is this normal? Will they eventually stretch into shape? I don't want cut fingers and scratched knuckles every time I want to put them on.
