Rated 5 out of 5 by Deej42 Essential for the Detachable Rack
Kit is required to install the detachable rack. Original fender bolts and longer replacements in the kit have an unusual driver notch -- a shallow hex with a deep tapered recess. Apparently takes a very special Harley tool -- I finally had my dealer install my rack. $$
The instructions include reference to a specific thread lock compound. Would have been nice to have seen this on-line so I could have picked some up before I drove 30 miles home after picking up the luggage rack and docking kit at my dealer.
The kit and the rack work well together, as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christi Should be standard
The fact that I had to spend $40 on nuts and bolts to put a $200 luggage rack on my bike is ridiculous. It should be standard included with the rack. Or any other part that would need them.

My wife purchased the luggage rack and back rest combination, along with the docking hardware to mount the luggage rack. The installation instructions were very easy to follow and I had no trouble installing the four bolts. Everything lined up perfect and did not require any adjustments. I purchased the Loctite 243 at the Harley Dealership and torqued the bolts to specifications. I had the hardware installed in about 15 minutes, and that's only because I work slow and take my time. Make sure you remove one bolt at a time and replace that bolt with a new one from the kit, otherwise you may have troubles lining up everything. It was a super easy installation and my wife's bike looks great. Yes - a bit pricey, but you are purchasing quality Harley-Davidson accessories and you get what you pay for.
