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

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.

I only want the backrest and maybe the luggage rack. I am thinking about notching mine and making it as clean as possible, taking my time and being very picky. I really don't want to take anything away from the bike, but the wife said I have to have a back rest. Lol

Do you notch from the fender side or the bag side? I haven't purchased the backrest yet and just curious.

I think the backrest attaches close to the fender. So notching the fender side of the fillers would make sense. Time to order a lock and ride backrest. Now jus need to find the black finish.

My backrest attaches in two spots. Both spots are between the fender and the bag. The forward most location has no latches just U shape holder. The rear part has the latches which will require more room. The latches fit more towards the bags than the fender. We are talking small amounts. I ended bending the tabs my latches are mounted on inwards a hair... It allowed easier operation of latches.

That's BS. You can run the tour box no problems on the Magnums. Wheel size makes no difference.

Just watch that GVWR of no more than 1360 lbs. That's riders and all of you gear. If you are under that you are good.
