I figured all of this out thanks to this awesome forum.

I bought them myself and they look great.
I couldn't see how to take the feet off to add washers so I was worried at first about the feet not sitting on the exhaust, but I'm running Rush War Horse 4 inch slip ons and the right bag sits on them np. The left one I can't get to sit but I think its bc I need the bike to sit upright.
I connected the right bags plug for the electronic lock right up and it unlocks np.
The bags came with the wires all connected inside the bag. I thought I was going to need to cut the plug on the right or I was getting trolled bc the plug seemed like it would not fit through the hole on the bags backside, but I was able to just get it through.
I got a usb plug
and put it into the right bag.
It does NOT fit without some extra work. I use a rubbed mallet and hammered it into place.
I would also recommend test fitting the wiring harness to the usb plug prior to putting it in place.
I had a problem with the red connection and working on it in place is very difficult in comparison.
I screwed up the plug on the left bag and I have to figure out how.
There is no 4 wire plug on the left and I cut mine off and added one of the 2 wire plugs splicing the blue and green wires but the lock isn't working.
I got the switch from cheapcyclesparts using 2019 Sprinfield as my point of reference.
SWITCH-SADDLEBAG LOCK V2
K-FOB HOUSING, 2BTN
[PLASTIC HOUSING ONLY]
I have not installed the switch yet(2500 mile service Tuesday and may ask if they can do it) and I plan to take the board out of my current fob and drop it into the 2 button(has not arrived yet).
I love how they look on the bike.
I spent money on Viking bags and actually am using the spools I got then along with the braces from the Viking bags to secure the bags to the bike.
I am not using any quick release hardware.
