Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Addition Purchased this for extra back support for my 2016 Road Glide Special. It is extremely easy to put on and remove and gives me just the right about of lower back support whether riding local or long distances. And it offers increase stability for me when I am stopped on the bike! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief for a tired Back! I purchased this backrest Kit as I have spine and Neck injuries from Military Service. I have to say, this is all I was missing. The comfort and support is dead on with lots of Adjustability from the Rider. My previous backrest was attached to my Mustang touring set. When I upgraded my bike rear fender to the CVO style, I didn't like the Mustang seat on this sleek rear end combo. It didn't take long to know I needed back support, This was the solution and I might in the future get the adjustable mount for future upgrade. Highly recommended for the Gray Beards and Young Bloods as well. Semper Fi, Can Do and 1*SRT

Will this rider backrest work with a solo rider seat?

I'm concerned the mounting bracket for the backrest would be viewable.
Asked by: Bagger
Hi Bagger, No, the Rider Backrest is not compatible with a solo seat. If you would like backrest with a solo seat, please consider Signature Series Rider Seat with Backrest, P/N 51700-09. Thank you for your question.

Does this kit include the base and backrest pad?

When you state kit, does this include both the backrest and the mounting bracket or just the pad?
Asked by: SoaringEagle
It's just the pad. "Installation requires separate purchase of model-specific Rider Backrest Mounting Kit."
