How to attach the factory back rest
« on: April 05, 2012, 03:18:36 am »
Okay, so I bought a factory back rest on here and learned the plate off the bottom does not just attach.

What do I need to make this work? Is there a bracket or something simple?

Sorry there are no pictures, I am at work and the part is at home.

There is mounting hardware that attaches to the passenger handrails. This mounting is used for factory backrest and or luggage rack. Cost about as much as the backrest. Look on ebay.

Part# K53021-083A, there is a couple on Ebay for around $120. Keep an eye out around here may get one from someone that is putting a top case on. Good Luck.
