OK one trip to a good hardware store and I'm good. I needed the following hardware:

2X M8x1.25 X 70 rear bolts
2X M8x1.25 X 90 front bolts
4X 5/16 ID x 5/8 OD x 3/4 lg spacers

RE: OEM Rear Rack- Fitting
Wow. Guys! Duh!!! Too soon old, too late smart!!!
I just put this rack on my 2014 Deluxe. It would have been nice
had I done the homework here as I did looking for it rather than
struggling thru.
I would add that when I was struggling with getting the "nuts" in
place to tighten in the back, I found that holding them in place with
a set of small needle nose pliers worked really well for me.
Next, I would add that I am going to my local truvalue hardware
store for a set of washers to put together spacers with the help of
some JB weld.
Good Job. Thank you.

RE: OEM Rear Rack- Fitting
For what it's worth ... I have a Daytona rack (which I think is no longer available) designed specifically to hold my Givi top box. Once I lost one of the bolts—it vibrated loose and fell out and the spacer that came with the rack was lost for all time. It was a couple of inches long. I went to a local fabrication place and bought or was given a length of cast off aluminium tube of the right diameter. I cut a length off the end and there was a perfectly acceptable spacer. It doesn't match perfectly, but you'd have to look hard to find it.

Thanks for the step-by instructions, very helpful. Just received my Endurance Carrier yesterday and installed without a hitch. Thumbs Up

Just wanted to confirm; many of your photo links are broken or is that just my computer not accessing them?

Either way, it made for some big prep help and smooth install process, thanks!

My thanks for this thread and the photos. Made life much easier this evening. The new rack was waiting when I got home from work, and my brother and I just finished installing it.

Dang, we do good work! Especially when those who have already done the job provide the instructions that Honda didn't. Thanks so much!
