Default How to: Victory driver's backrest?

Hi, i scored a used drivers backrest. Not sure how to install. Has a plate with two nuts on it that I assume goes inside rear fender. These nuts hold two cap screws that go through backrest bracket and rear fender. Back side off bracket has rubber fitted to it so as not to rub fender? It also came with two wuarter sized washers. It looks like they were installed between backrest bracket and fender on the pervious owners bike? Is that how its supposed to be done? Are washers part of the assembly? If this is done in thexsame way as pervious owner the washers will damage paint on fender.

Anyone with proper instruction for victory backrest part number 2875527?

Is it possible that the washers are not part of original kit but were added by original owner to adjust angle of backrest?

attach a pic if you can. Washers sound pretty big, may have been used to hold a saddlebag or something he put on to keep the rubber parts on?

Should be pretty close or the same to my Kingpin.

But it should just fit without washers. Bolts should hold it down to the fender sides and the fender chrome piece.

Here's my backrest, only placed on bike to show it lines up with holes in rear fender. Seats removed.

Second picture shows backside of backrest bracket. You can see the rubber material that I believe is there to protect fender paint. You can also see indents in the rubber that was left there by the washers. These washers if located like that would be directly on fender paint. Washer inplace on the left side hole for illustration.

Third photo shows nut plate that goes up inside fender and one of the washers.

Fourth photo is of holes in the front of the rear fender with seat removed.

that rubber or tape on the bottom side will not protect the pain. Get something better.
The washers look like they were used as shims. Either to change the angle of the back rest or to keep back rest off the paint.
