    Model-specific Rider Backrest Mounting Kit
Rider Backrest Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of adjustability I use two different Harley seats on my bike and really like the adjustability of this seat. Quality is very good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...

Will this rider backrest work with a solo rider seat?

I'm concerned the mounting bracket for the backrest would be viewable.
Asked by: Bagger
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.

Does this kit include the base and backrest pad?

When you state kit, does this include both the backrest and the mounting bracket or just the pad?
Asked by: SoaringEagle
It's just the pad. "Installation requires separate purchase of model-specific Rider Backrest Mounting Kit."
