95% done








It is ready for market it is a two-piece system you simply mount the bracket to the bottom of passenger seat, similar to the Victory model, then the backrest itself slides in or out of that sleeve no tools needed and when removed nothing is visible totally hidden system!

Of important note here
There are 2 different rear seats for the KP. The first is a base seat that is narrower, and does not overlap the front seat. Second is the touring seat. It is wider, and overlaps the top of the drivers seat. It would appear that the seat you have is the touring version. If it works on that combo then it should work for all Vegas and KP from 03 to present. The Vegas however does have a different grain
