Side bolts too short w/detachable kit
I was very disappointed with this kit. It was very heavy for only a 10 lb. weight capacity. The kit is advertised as able to be used with the detachable mount kit and sissy bar as pictured, but the side bolts that are used in the detachable mount are too short for this application. I could not use any washers as per the instructions for the side bolts and it still barely fit. Had to struggle to get them to bite. I worry that there are too few threads to safely hold and could strip out under use and vibration. Also, the seat screw mount makes any quick seat changes (i.e. solo to 2-up) difficult. Many small parts on the seat screw point could get easily lost during a seat change. The instructions are not easy to understand. Also be aware that when you remove the side bolts and seat bolt, the underside bracket will fall down. I tried doing side bolts first while leaving the seat bolt in place to hold the bracket, but the too short length of the side bolts made this very difficult. The engineers need to rethink the mounting process. At a minimum, putting in 1/4 inch longer detachable mount side bolts would make a huge difference.

Does not fit a 2016 Roadster
Both the 2017 H-D catalog and H-D website say that this rack will fit on a Roadster (XL1200CX), but it will not. The tail lights are in a different position than other Sportster models. My H-D Parts Manager and two H-D Service Technicians came to the same conclusion. I had to return the product. Please let me know when you make a rack that will actually fit on the Roadster.

Installation is my only PITA complaint about it. The mounting hardware was still a pinch short when mounting. I struggled and had to break out the vise grips and cloth to get everything close enough to bite. Got this in hopes of being able to Tour a bit

Used with sissybar
I absolutely love how my bike turned out with this luggage rack. I'm using it in combination with the quick detach sissy bar that happens to be in the picture of this rack. It works great for me and it gives great style. Heads Up though to anybody using it with a quick detach system, if you use the shorter of the 2 quick detach systems you won't use most of the hardware they give you with this as it takes to much real estate in the length of the bolts. Just go with the pre existing bracket under your fender and your quick detach hardware, the rest just set aside. I love qit though and would recommend it to anybody looking for an old school stylish way to carry luggage.
