    I recently installed a set on my 2017 touring. Mine look exactly
    same, gap wise, as yours. I think you are good to go...

    Please make all bolts lose again. THIS time, tighten the FRONT bolts first so that the gap is closed. THEN, tighten the REAR bolts and torque to 20 ft-lbs. THEN torque the FRONT bolts to 20 ft-lbs. This will leave little or no gap in the front of and a gap in the REAR. Doing this you will increase the load needed pushing down to allow the bars to rotate. This is what you want since we rarely, if ever, find ourselves lifting up on the bars.
