Armrest for 2012 HD Roadglide Ultra

My wife wanted some of these for the road trips, decided to get the detachable ones for when I ride alone. As in previous reviews, the installation instructions could have had a little better photo's for some of the descriptions, but overall the instructions were very helpful and I was able to install them with no problem. One issue that I have was how the intercom relocation should really be installed, the instructions and photo could have been a little better. Just need to get out on the road and see how they hold up. I also purchased the pouch that goes with these, looks good.

Great addition to the wife's comfort

I bought these to go on an aftermarket trunk on a Yamaha Stratoliner which required me to modify the mounting bracket slightly since they are made for Harley Tour Paks, but all in all, they fit the lines of the bike very well and exceeded my expectations in both quality and appearance.

quick detach passenger armrests

great product. Dennis Kirk is a great place to buy from. Kury's instructions leave a lot to be desired. poor quality pictures - left and right was not marked, and you can't tell from the pic's. not very accurate depiction of the product. but everything was there that was needed.

Great Product

High quality, easy installation, but the pictures used in the installation instructions are too dark to be of any value. The only downside is that because of the pivot point and the tube construction, it is extremely flexible. However, when my wife has her arms resting on the pads, it is fine. Drink holder works great.

Still need more miles to tell

These armrest do not look that cool on a Harley but my wife wanted them so i went with the detachables so i can remove them when i ride alone. We went for a 200 mile ride after installing them. Wife commented they could be a little higher up. She did like the cup holder becasue we are in South Texas and very hot. I had to adust hold down screw several times on the ride to get them tight so they would not vibrate ( i might have been a little to careful not to overtighten). The screws holding down the arm pad came loose several times as well even though they came with lock tight on the screws. I will add my own lock tight and try again. The install was not to hard on 2006 Ultra Classic however the pictures in the instructions were sometimes too dark to see what the part was supposed to look like. Bottom line wife wanted them so i will make them work. I also installed the adjutable tour pak relocator which worked well. DK was the lowest price i could find on them.
