Cool Magnum Lock and Ride Backrest ??

So I have been looking for a backrest and rack for my Magnum. I want something that looks as good as the Magnum and easily removable. I love the Pure Polaris Lock and Ride stuff, but everything on Victory's site says that it wont fit the Magnum. Any help on this??? I don't see what it wouldn't be the same as the XR or XC.

The reason none of it fits the magnum is the bag fillers. Technically speaking you can use the Lock and ride stuff for the XC/XR as the mounting points are the same, but you will have to either notch out the bag fillers, or remove them completely to allow it.

I bought the bag fillers for my XR, and notched them to allow me to use the Kuryakyn Multi purpose Backrest.

Perfect - looks like I will be notching some fillers to get the backrest to fit.

Thank you - I guess I should have looked closer at my Magnum before posting the question..... LOL

And by notching the fillers he would also be able to add a trunk to the Magnum if he ever wished to?

Most of the Magnums I have seen with trunks or back rests. The fillers have been cut off halfway up ish.

I just removed mine all together. I needed a backrest for my wife and daughter to ride. Small sacrifice.

This winter I am going to order the lower fillers from Vic baggers. By just getting the lowers I won't have to worry about my trunk or backrest. My father in law is going to French my license plate into existing fender. Or I might relocate it down under the fender.

I read something recently in Vic literature that stated you shouldn't have a tour pack with a 21" or larger front wheel. A little over cautious I'm thinking. Looks nice.
