Studded Passenger Backrest Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Wife loves the backrest because its comfy, I love this because it looks awesome on my 2017 Roadking. It really adds a nice touch. My brother is a little jealous, he has the plain backrest on his 2016 RK. Every time I ride with him he says he should have bought this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size and comfort This backrest pad is a nice large size and very comfortable. My wife loves it. And the studs match the stock seat studs on my 2016 Road King perfectly.

Which sissy bar?

What is the part number for the shortest detachable sissy bar this backrest will fit on? Thanks . . .
Asked by: graygp3

On this back rest, is this the black studded or regular chrome studs?

I need a black studded to match my seat and pillion.

2012 Heritage Softail

So I am looking at getting this pad for my '12 softail with the 52735-85 sissy bar and the 53374-03 side plates. Would that all fit together properly?

2015 Road King

Will the Touring Bag and other bags slip over this backrest pad or is this pad considered oversized? If not, do any of the HD Touring bags fit with this pad?
Asked by: ebeck15
Hi Ebeck15, The Studded Passenger Backrest Pad is considered oversized and unfortunately, Harley-Davidson does not make a luggage bag that will fit over an oversized backrest pad. Thank you for your question, FXS78

I have a short sissy bar for my 2005 Road King and I'm looking for a compatible back rest. Will this one work? It matches my seat.
