Low-Profile Sissy Bar Upright - Sportster is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and functional I put this on my 2016 Roadster about a year ago. I needed something I that would let me carry a small duffel on the bike. This works perfectly. It has a very understated look, so it does not detract from the basic lines of the Roadster. Installation is very straight forward. Just make sure you carefully read the instructions related to how the brackets fit around the wiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory Very well built and looks great on my Roadster without changing the look of the bike from what was intended. Easy install. Only took about 15 minutes with simple hand tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for roadser Installed in 15 minutes on my 2016 roadster. 6 bolts 3 each side. No the shocks don't have to be taken off on a roadsters model. If you need a dealer to install 6 bolts I don't know what to tell you. Bracket fits perfect made for this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation Not a big fan of sissy bars but wanted something low profile to strap a bag to. Looks great and was a ten minute installation on my 2016 Roadster.

Do I have to take back shocks off of my bike to install low profile sissy bar?

Hello, I own a 2017 forty eight sportster. Do I have to take the back shocks off to install the low profile sissy bar upright?
Asked by: Tim1968

Are there any luggage racks that go with this? Thanks.

Asked by: kjjb22

Are mounts separate?

Does this sissy bar come complete, or are mounting plates separate?
Asked by: Alanb822
No hardware needed you use the existing bolts in fender, BUT you need to remove shocks, raise frame. I returned mine instead of having dealer install. Would have been over $ 300 to install.

Is it correct that to install this you have to remove the shocks and lift the suspension?
