    Model-specific Rider Backrest Mounting Kit
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice backrest I always ride with a backrest and decided to go with this one because it matches the seat I have and the sissy bar pad I use. It's comfortable and sturdy and looks good. My only gripe is that it's severely overpriced for what it is. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rider BAckrest Kit I just installed the Rider Backrest Mounting Kit on my 2016 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited and now added the backrest itself. Mounting the actual backrest was pretty straight forward but you almost have to mount it by "feel" rather than "sight." Once mounted, I adjusted the backrest adjustment screw and it fine-tuned the backrest to fit me perfect. The only disappointing/frustrating part is the cost of the backrest - $199. It's a nice backrest made with Harley-Davidson quality, but I have no idea why it costs so much. Oh well . . . as others have said, the bike is a down payment on the accessories. Looking forward to spring when I can get my bike out and actually try the backrest out on a longer ride. December 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leather back rest Back rest replaced an after market one I thought was good enough. It wasn't, so I upgraded and with the new support system needed to install this makes for a much nicer more comfortable ride.... You get what you pay for... September 6, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrible workmanship This backrest works fine but I have a real problem with the qualityof it. The one I bought today has of the way it was made. I just purchased to fit on my 2011 Limited. I had 2002 Ultra with a backrest and the quality of that was fantastic. The leather around the legs that you squeeze to put it in the mount was contoured so you wouldn't have excessive material in the way plus there was also a pouch on the back. The one I purchased today for my 2011 has at least 8 inches of extra material around the legs and it looks like crap because you can't push it down inside by the mounting bracket plus there is no longer a pouch on back and yes it costs a lot more. Very dissatisfied with that quality the Harley Davidson is accepting now days. August 6, 2016

I'm concerned the mounting bracket for the backrest would be viewable.

Answer: 
Hi Bagger,

No, the Rider Backrest is not compatible with a solo seat. If you would like backrest with a solo seat, please consider Signature Series Rider Seat with Backrest, P/N 51700-09.

Thank you for your question.

When you state kit, does this include both the backrest and the mounting bracket or just the pad?
