Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Quality I can't imagine a better quality product. The directions for installation were very straight forward and went in smooth and fast. They are rock solid as well. When you connect into these it feels as strong as a weld. Very very solid connection system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warning about the lengths screws This is a great product but warning if you have a Side-Mount License Plate Kit-60972-10, the lengths of the left side screws are not long enough. (This case for a 2014 Forty-Eight.)

does this hardware come in black?

i have zero chrome on my bike and don't want to start now. If not, any suggestions on how to black these out.

Chopped fender luggage rack makes the docking point kit seem to not work. Not only are the bolts too short but the docking points don't line up. Help

Is this the hardware needed for the one piece detachable sissy bar for a 2013 Seventy Two?
Asked by: Sandsnipe
Hey Sandsnipe, That is the correct kit as long as you do not have leather saddlebags. If you do have leather saddlebags you will need docking hardware kit: 53544-04. Thank you
