Default What Are These Mount Rings For?

I recently bought a used Victory brand lock and ride passenger backrest and luggage rack (3 hole type) from a member here. I got a great deal and the items are flawless. The hardware kit that came with the backrest contains four plastic split mounting rings. Two of them are shown in the picture below. These clearly are intended to go on the four mounting posts but why are they necessary? All four of the mounting posts already have some sort of gray plastic cover over the underlying metal post so why are these split rings necessary?

G'day,

Vinish

Those are for the 2010 models that didn't come with any bushings on the saddlebag mounts. If you already have black or gray bushings on yours, you can toss these.

Vinish, if you already have a set of them on your bike, I could use a set if you're willing to part with them. My bike never came with any, nor did my backrest.

I'm sure Vinish will be more than happy to sell them to you.......

Heck no. I'm not going to sell them to you. I'm going to give them away. Well, sort of. They are yours for the price of postage. PM me your address and I will figure out the shipping cost and you can Paypal me that small amount and I will mail them to you. It will be a week and a half till I can do this as I leave Sat. morning for a week long bike trip in the mountains of NC.

G'day,
