Installed the Victory Lock and Ride backrest on my brand new XC. Pretty simple install, though I have to admit removing the saddle bags and taking the saddle bag supports off was a very delicate operation. Delicate only because I didn't want to scratch or ding anything on my brand new bike... My wife and daughter really like the backrest though... So it's all good.
Next up will be installing the Ness Flip Windshield. It should arrive tomorrow... I don't anticipate this being a big deal to do, but I'm really hoping it makes a big difference in air flow/ head buffeting.
By the way, I'm the member of several Jeep forums... More focused on JK's though. Just Empty Every Pocket... Motorcycles have the same affect...
I have the backrest also. If you don't plan on taking off often you may want to put a small bolt,washer and nut on each side ( there are holes) so no one can just pull the tabs up and walk away with a $450. part....I did that first day and it has never been off - I carry a cooler all the time on the rack.
The bags come off very easy - lining up the twist pegs to re-install can be interesting ....
Enjoy the miles....we only get so many!
