Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! This is a solid mount that has a lot of adjustability for use with many different seats. Very easy to install and works perfectly with the removable backrest I use with it. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rider Backrest Mounting Kit I just installed the Rider Backrest Mounting Kit on my 2016 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited. The mounting kit was pretty easy to install (I did a You Tube search and watched a couple videos first) and everything lined up as it was supposed to. The only frustrating part was figuring out which set of mounting holes to use. I am 6'2" so I started off with the holes that mount the backrest furthest back. That didn't work because the mounting kit did not line up with the slot in the seat. I moved the mounting kit one notch forward and now everything lined up perfect. The worst part of the process was lining the seat mounting screw up with all the wiring harnesses and antenna cables in the way. It helps to have someone hold a flashlight so you can see better. Be patient when you mount the backrest itself and give yourself a chance to adjust the Allen screw on the back of the backrest itself. That is what fine-tuned the backrest and made it fit for me. At first I thought the backrest was too far forward, but a couple turns of the Allen screw and problem solved. Nice product and I like installing genuine Harley-Davidson products on my Harley-Davidson. December 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by well made Super sturdy and well made. It will support the rider's weight no matter how big you are. December 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rider Backrest I have this on both of my bikes. It is needed to install the backrest for the rider. Quick install. Backrest helps save your back while touring or on short rides. August 25, 2016

I have my backrest and the Rider backrest mounting Kit from my 2005 Classic. Well I updated to a 2015 Ultra Classic Trike. I can't find my instruction sheet or find a part number on the backrest or the kit to see if it will will work on the trike before I take it apart. Is there a way you can tell me if they will work on the trike? Thank you.

Will this fit the FLRT FreeWheeler?

Your figment section lists the FLRT FreeWheeler as a model that this rider backrest kit will fit. I went to a local dealer and they looked it up and said it won't fit. They stated only the adjustable backrest kit will fit.

Will it fit or not?

Answer: 
Hi Ryan,

I was able to look further into whether or not this backrest mount will fit a FLRT (Trike). This particular backrest mounting kit does not fit a FLRT. Only the Adjustable Rider Backrest, P/N 54099-10 will fit. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Thanks!
