After looking around for the best looking backrest, I decided to get this one. It was in stock and delivered very fast. Very easy to install. All the other parts, Sissy bar and pad came also. All parts fit with little or no trouble. The Universal Mount did not have directions with it but I went to the Kuryakyn web site and downloaded. Didn't really need them but wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly. 15 minutes and it was done. Looks outstanding.
Love the idea of having the mount hidden away under the seat instead of bulky side mounts. It's made from 3/16" steel and all chrome. I used silicone to glue the mounting bolts to a thin flexible dow the night before to reach under the fender and avoid pulling the rear wheel.
This mount was easy to install, looks good on the bike, and easier to detach sissy bars. Very happy with the product as now I can put whatever bar on the back without having to change the whole mounting system. I prefer making my own bars and I use different ones for traveling purposes and passenger safety. Overall I would recommend this product to a friend. My wife is happy with it too as the mount did not interfer with the overall comfort of the seat.
I bought this for my 09 fatboy it was too short plus only one hole for the seat which has two to hold the seat down. wasn't close to fitting. looks very nice,great chrome. I tried the one for the smaller tire which it was a bit longer. I drilled new holes and had to hammer the curve somewhat out to fit the bigger fender. Got it to work and does look nice but for the price they should have one that just bolts on. Now this product would be great for other bikes maybe
