Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for me After trying all possible positions with the mounting bracket, I did not find a enjoyable, comfortable setting. The furthest back setting made the backrest pad too high, also less room for my wife, and the closest one lowered the pad but it pushes you to far into the gas tank. Just couldn't find a sweet spot. Like an earlier review, the screw adjustment only adjusts the lean angle of the pad. Not for me, maybe one day if I get back pain but for now I'll do with out it. July 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best for the Long Haul In addition to the Hammock seat I can go 10 hours plus before "back fatigue" sets in. I like the pressure that it applies to the armor in the rear of my jacket to give me firm support on the entire back. I was putting on a belt after about 150 miles but leaning into this pad gives me about the same effect. I like it. June 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable Just got it. No complaints. Can be adjusted forward or back slightly with the screw on back of seat. Screw is under skirt of the seat. August 11, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Took it off and never put it back on 2007 FLHTCU with stock seat. This backrest pushes you onto the tank. I'm 6'2" and it forces you to sit straight up and pushes you forward. When using the highway pegs it's tolerable. While you can "adjust" it slightly, only the top tips back so that's pointless. For 250 bucks (with mounting kit sold separately of course) I couldn't possibly recommend this to anyone. I took it off and never put it back on. It's going on e-bay. Don't waste your money.

Answer: 
Hi TallMark.

The rider backrest mounting kit for this backrest doesn't fit the Tri Glide. And the adjustable rider backrest mounting kit that does fit the Tri Glide, doesn't fit the Tallboy seat.

So, unfortunately, you won't be able to mount a rider's backrest to your '15 FLHTCUTG.

There is a spring in this backrest. I thought that was to make the rest spring back to the upright position after I throw my leg over it. This backrest doesn't do that. It remains bent over and I have to push it upright. Is this normal?

Answer: 
Seeing is that it's spring loaded, it should pop back up. If you need to physically pull it up, there's an issue there. Check in with your local dealer to see if it can be fixed or if it needs to be warrantied.
