Default XC Lock and Ride Passenger Backrest - EBay

I'm a little confused, and would appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

I am in the market for a Lock & Ride Passenger Backrest for my XC. I'm not in a hurry to spend $500 for this, so I checked eBay. I'd like to know what the difference is between the OEM Lock and Ride Passenger Backrest for $230 and the ones showing up at the Retail Price?

Do I just get that good a deal on the $230 one or is it something I should be wary of? I remember seeing a post somewhere about a recall on the backrests at one time. Is the cheaper one to be suspected as being a recall?

Thanks in advance for any clarification.

I bought the $230 one on EBAY over a year ago and have never had any issues with it at all. Pretty much on the bike 95% of the time as the wife loves riding.

Thanks folks, good to know there weren't any issues.

I guess I should pull the trigger and have eBay ship another one to TX!

The cheaper one is likely the recalled model identifiable by weather it has 2 bolt holes or 3 for a rack. The old 2 bolt was recalled but the reason for the recall was that if you used a rack it was possible to overload it and crack the backrest. If you have no plans for a rack then you should be fine with it.

One thing to check is make sure it comes with the mounting hardware which is a bag of plastic spacers you put on the saddlebag mounts.

I bought mine from Roglewrog on ebay and it came with all the hardware and such... it is pre recall, with 2 bolt holes.

^^^ This is what I have coming.

Is it possible in the future, if I so desire, to merely drill a 3rd mounting hole to install a rack? Or is the rack mount completely different post-recall??

Thanks again,
Dan

I believe to prevent that they changed the spacing.

The whole point of the recall was the tendency for stress cracks, I think drilling into it may compound that problem.

If they are selling pre-recall units you should be able to bring them into a dealer and have them replaced with one of the new design. They may ask you if you've ever had a luggage rack mounted on it.

Of course, if you never plan to mount a luggage rack and you don't care about future resale value then you could just use it as-is. Nothing wrong with the backrest itself if it doesn't have the added stress of a luggage rack.
