H-D Detachables Docking Hardware Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a perfect fit Have to modify the install to work. I don't know if the mounting area varies from the different bikes it's listed for but on my 06 RK the spacers were too wide/or screws too short to install as instructed.

I have a 97 flhcti, if this kit doesn't fit what kit do I need to run a sissy bar?

Asked by: Tford21
Hi Tford21, What type of Sissy Bar are you attempting to mount? Unfortunately, the 97 FLHTCI is an older bike and does not correlate with the H-D Detachable Docking Hardware you mention. Try a local H-D dealer for assistance as they may have other options for you to try.

Mounting on a 2007 Road King - Do I replace upper shock bolts?

It looks like the only way to make this front docking hardware kit fit on my 2007 FLHP is to replace the top bolt on the shocks on each side. I have only a basic skill at H/D motorcycle add-ons - is this something I should be able to do - any tips? Thanks
Asked by: Pacman76706
Hello Pacman76706, This docking kit should work on this Police version of a RoadKing just like it would on a civilian FLHR model. Please see the docking point illustration on the link below for docking position #4 that you may think is using the same location as the shock mount. That illustration will show you it does not. I would suggest that you have a dealer install this kit because depending on how it all lines up, you will want to leave the fasteners loose until you have everything in place including what you are going to put on for a detachable to ensure they are all aligned as expected and then go around and do the final tightening. Thank You!
