I did go ahead and get a set of these racks from Precision Motorcycle Racks on eBay.
They fit well, but I did need to make a trip to Lowe's to mount them up. The mounting hardware is apparently not included. The problem is you cannot mount them with the passenger footpegs in place using the original footpeg mounting bolts. You can use the original bolt on the front of the left hand passenger footpeg. Otherwise you will need to find three M8 1.25x70 bolts to reach far enough through the rack brackets to mount them onto the footpegs.
There were also no instructions so I had to study the eBay photos to figure out how to mount them. The one included nut/bolt is to bolt the bottom bracket of the right rack to the bottom of the right passenger footpeg.
Again, they look good, but I cannot really say that the Nelson-Rigg CL-850 bags hang any better off the racks than they did with my original Dan Vesel luggage/tool tube guard on the left and off the muffler shield on the right. That is also the tool tube that I used to carry my toolkit, so I will probably figure out a way to mount that tube on the rack.
