Hey guys

I'm trying to help a guy out that needs some $$$ and he has a backrest for sale. He has no part#'s just photos and he says that the backrest is off an 09 Ultra.

I want to put it on an 08.

Anyone know if I'll hafta drill my rear fender to install this thing ?

Or, will it bolt right on ?..

Thanx for any help !

I would guess it that it will not bolt on without mods. Since 09 was the first yr of the new model, style, redesign, what ever you wanna call it. New frame and fenders and wider rear tire. Pkus according to the website, the mounting hardware is only for 09+ so i would guess no.

According to the Harley parts catalog the '09 mounting base is different from the 88-08 base. You can use his backrest, but you will have to buy a different mounting kit for $40...or $220 (!) if you want an adjustable one. If the price for the backrest is right it's probably worth getting it. New ones are $200-up.

BTW, I was able to get a nearly-new backrest complete with mount for a little over $100 on eBay.
