I vote for "one".

If you are talking about the tour pack it's about a "1".
All you have to do is take out some bolts and replace them with some longer ones.
I can't remember if it's Torx or Allen head bolts. Either way, it's a lot easier if you have a set of (Torx or Allen) sockets. The kind that you can use on a ratchet.
Good luck and post some pictures when you finish.

One suggestion, after torquing the bolts, take a Q-Tip, dip in liquid wax and insert into the internal hex of the bolt head. Twist it around a bit and remove. You'll find the bolt will be less Susceptible to surface rust/corrosion build up. Which will occur regardless if the bolt is stainless steel or polished chrome. At the end of the day, the bolt heads will not become unsightly and requires no maintenance.
