Will this fit a 225 on the passenger seat without touching exhaust?

It won't touch on the left side wink



In theory, the chrome heat shield should stay below the melting point of nylon, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Looks like the luggage has some sort of integral heat shield. I guess storing chocolate on that side is out! I have a Russell on both seats so the passenger seat is taller and wider than the stock seat by quite a bit, so it may work. I have a topcase, but it makes it top heavy, so I'm looking for other options.

Most saddlebags do have built-in heat shields, but they're only marginally effective when laying directly on the exhaust in my experience. The best choice is some sort of frame or support that will maintain a gap between he bag and the exhaust.
