H-D Detachables Docking Hardware Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Street bob docking hardware It's great to be able to switch out so simply. Only down side with this kit is that it requires other kits. What they don't mention so quickly is that this is a turn signal elimination kit, unless you purchase the turn signal mounting hardware kit that passes the wires thru the hardware. Better be good with your hand or your better off paying to have it all installed and be ready to spend about for parts and labor combined $200/ $300 "this is a rough ball park only"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installed on 2017 Low Rider S with detachable sissy bar and saddlebag FYI..There is some confusion on whether this one is the right kit for the Low Rider S with Saddlebags or not. At Harley it's designated for the Street Bob. I used it to install my detachable sissy bar and saddlebags. The bolts weren't long enough for my saddlebag so I had to get those elsewhere. FYI in case you need a bolt near 3 inch, the kit doesn't have them. Also, be very careful tightening the rear most bolt. It is tack welded in and doesn't have a reinforcement like the front one. On my first round it broke before I got to the torque specs (15-20 ft lbs). Harley was gracious enough to give me a new one. But be careful when tightening them. Easy to install and works as designed.

Why do the sissy bars say you need to relocate the plate, when you can add detachable kit with only a signal relocation kit?

15 FXDB Street Bob
Asked by: Gregarious

Is there anything else I need besides the docking hardware kit in order to attach a detachable sissy bar onto my 2014 street bob fxdb?

Asked by: JP1981
Hi JP1981, Yes, you would need Directional Relocation Kit, P/N 53968-06C. Thank you for your question.

Does this come in gloss black for my 2014 streetbob?

Asked by: Beanbag138
Hi Beanbay138, Unfortunately, no, Harley-Davidson does not make this H-D Detachables Docking Hardware Kit in gloss black. If you would like to see Harley-Davidson do so, the best way to get your idea heard is to: Go to > Contact Us > IDEAS FOR HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTOR COMPANY > Idea Submission Instructions Thank you for your question.
