is this leather or vinyl?
John S on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Vinyl.
will this fit a 2007 softail deluxe flstn?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I do not know.
Does this backrest have a pouch for the passenger to put small items in?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The pouch is the same size as the back rest and is zippered. The pouch is sort of an inverted "U" shape because the support bracket attaches in the middle.
Does this fold forward so the passenger can get off?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No..........it is a great product though......my wife has no problems getting on or off.........
Will it fit 2009 goldwing?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am assuming each different model seat fits a different MC. The one I purchased fit a HD Road King. If you are buying it from Dennis Kirk just enter in your MC type and it will tell you if it fits
I changed my stock seat to a h/d hammock seat will this backrest still fit???
A shopper on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The back rest mounting brackets mount to the frame under the seat and there are 4 positions you can choose from to match the seat. The back rest itself goes through the stock seat slot and into the brackets. If the hammock seat has the same slot in the seat as the stock seat then I don't see why it won't work. The back rest itself has several height positions which would allow for different height seats.
Models it fits?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Description clearly says 97 and up touring models with one piece slotted seat
Is it possible to mount driver backrest and passenger grab bars on 2012 ultra classic ?
Bryan on Dec 28, 2016

could this fit a 2015 harley switchback ? with solo seat
Anthony p on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not have enough knowledge of item to answer that question. We put it on a 2012 Street Glide that had a full seat. You do have to mount your bracket, our bike had holes that the bracket fit into.. Hope this helps.
Will it fit 2016 cvo Street glide with 2 piece seat?
Joseph P on Jul 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should
Does the seat adjust to recline??
Bonnie on Jun 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: slight adjustment but not enough to recline
Would this fit a 2016 roadglide special with a H-D tall boy seat ?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should fit
does this come with everything you need to assemble and use then? I know harley store people said that you had to buy additional bracket to receive the backrest.
Scott M on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is everything you need
Will this fit my stock seat on my 2016 cvo special street glide?
A shopper on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will fit a standard slotted HD stock seat. I added this backrest onto my 2016 RK after I upgraded to a stock Ultra seat. This one is much more comfortable for me than the HD backrest.
Why did this item increase in price so drastically? It seems like just a month or so ago it was in the $150.00 plus range.
A shopper on Mar 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Only reason I can think of is they might have started making it a better product. Mine started to fall apart after about 3 days of riding with it

Back Rest
Besides my highway pegs... this backrest is the best purchase I've ever made! I can't believe I waited so long to get one. It was easy to install, looks great, and supports my lower back on longer rides (I have lower back issues/pain). Ordering was easy with Dennis Kirk and shipping was quick.

Another Great Product From Kuryakyn
I installed this backrest on my 2016 Harley Road Glide Ultra in about 30 minutes including fine adjusting the angle. Nice product for the price!

Beats Harley Fixed Backrest Hands Down!!!
Got this backrest at a great price using Dennis Kirks price match. I really like the construction of this thing and the adjust ability it looks to have. I've had both of the Harley Driver Backrests (fixed and adjustable) and could never get them adjusted to my liking. I mounted this thing and it feels great right out of the box.I've put about 300 miles on the bike since mounting it and have nothing but praise for this backrest. I can honestly say I now know the happiness of having a backrest for long rides. And as an added benefit, if I ever buy a new bike I can take this with me as it comes with mounting brackets for all Touring bikes.

Great Purchase!!!!
This backrest fits well on my 2012 Electra Glide ultra limited. the shipment was on point as far as the date of arrival and time, in fact I have yet to have an issue with shipping from Dennis Kirk and I have been a customer for several years. The backrest overall fits nicely and the quality is well worth the money for it. The product was fairly easy to install and took about 30 minutes or so, the hardest part is trying to find the adjustment that best suits you. I like the fact that it has several adjustable settings for if you are a shorter or taller rider, there is definitely an adjustment for you. Great back support for those longer rides.

Eh
I weigh 200 pounds and the torque from my 88, or lack there of, bends the post if I lean on it at all while banging gears. I sent the first one back thinking it was defective but now just pull it off and straighten it out every once and a while. Also the pocket on the back pulled away from the the pad.

No Review Title Entered By User
Even though I gave the back rest 5 stars I wish the mounting lined up better under the seat. You have four hole choices but for my bike 2013 Road Glide Ultra, actually only had one.
The rest was easy to install and looks like it was always apart of the bike.
I would definitely recommend this rest to others

Took me like zero time to install it on my Road King. It took me a little messin' around to adjust it but with all the possibilities it was a cinch. Brings a whole new ride to the FLHR.
