Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good could be better The adjustable Rider backrest mount is a good product and well made in typical Harley fashion. I believe it would be a better product if the adjustable range were greater. It doesn't make sense to me that there is a hard stop at 90 degrees. It adjust forward (towards the handle bars) but not back. I would think it would be better if it were adjustable between 0 and 30 degrees in both directions. July 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by truly a must have for long hauls I have had this for about 6 month now. this backrest will adjust front, back, up, and down. it will come off of bike within 20 seconds and can have different pads installed. I cant ride without it now. July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Back Thanks You After years of playing hard and it does eventually catch up to you. This is where the adjustable backrest mounting kit comes in. Along with the actual back rest and the ability to adjust the angle of support for long rides is fantastic. I can't talk about the install but I can say that I use it all the time and glad that I do. July 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by As advertised, even the fine print Easy personal install in about 30 minutes. It however doesn't work with the Tall Boy seat which is in the fine print on some of the seat descriptons but not anywhere on this product description. Really needs to have a full disclosure of what it fits with and what it won't. April 17, 2016

Answer: 
I had the kit installed by the dealership and they bolted it right up under the left side of the center front of the rider seat directly to the frame. You should find a couple of holes for it to mount to. My bike was a 2014 Road King.

Answer: 
In the rear engine bay area on the frame work under the seat where you would normally install the plastic or metal heat shields.
Take off the seat or course and thread cable through the area above the battery.
Hope this helps.
The illustrated instructions pdf on the product page should shed some light on the location.

need a bolt

I had this backrest given to me and I need the bolt that attaches the adjustment lever to the frame. Is there a part number I need, or can I get the specs on the bolt so I can get one at the hardware store?

Answer: 
Hi Dawg37179,

If you look at the "FL Adjustable Rider Backrest Mounting Hardware Kit Instruction Sheet" link, under the "More Info" tab, you will find a diagram breaking down this kit on the last page. It will give you the part numbers of the parts that are sold separately.

Thank you for your question.

Answer: 
It should. I have the 52596-09A Adjustable Rider Backrest Mounting Kit (and a backrest) mounted together with the 97026-09 Chrome Passenger Grab Rail on a 2013 FLHTCU. The Passenger Grab Rail 52400042 has the same install instructions listed on the web page.
