Saddlebag supports - can anyone give me measurements? (650 Custom)

I have a new 650 Custom ( 2010) and i love it! I'm looking for some saddlebags, but the support brackets are expensive - ridiculously expensive for a few metal bars and some screws. If anyone has supports on their 650 custom, would it be possible to provide me with some quick measurements in length? I may just have someone make me some and powdercoat em, save me about 60 bucks.

Have you checked on eBay for the brackets and bags? I picked up the Silverado bags for my Classic brand new for $299. From the dealer they cost $799. I picked the brackets up for less than $100 while the dealer wanted $149. Deals can be found but you have to be patient.

As far as the taillights are concerned, I've read that they have to be relocated.
