Will this fit on my 2015 RGS with hammock rider/passenger seat? Or do I need the standard height?

Asked by: Ctrdking
Hi Ctrdking, Both the Short and Standard Detachables Sissy Bar Uprights will fit on your 2015 FLTRXS. It is a matter of your personal preference if you feel that the Short Detachables Sissy Bar Upright is too close to the Hammock Rider and Passenger Touring Seat. Thank you for your question.

Will this sissy bar fit a 2014 ultra with the tour-Pak relocation kit and 4 point mounting system installed?

The description indicates it fits all touring models but does not list the ultra's in the fitment guide. I have heard of an interference with the shock mount on some models not allowing one of the latches to engage and wanted to understand if that's why the ultras aren't listed in the fitment guide.
Asked by: Nroelli
Hi Nroelli, Yes, this is guaranteed to work on your 14 FLHTCU with no issues. Sometimes the drop down fitment guide does not contain every single model that it is supposed to work with. Best thing to do is to go by the initial fitment statement above that. You'll be just fine with this part. Don't forget the backrest pad if you do not have it already. Thank you!
