Is there some mod people have done to these?
If you push it down then it hits that plastic piece in the frame above rear wheel. Seems like a design flaw if I push it down then it would knock out the plastic.

Google only lead me to an old thread on vog mentioning the issue but no solution.

My only thought at moment is drilling it and running a bolt through it to act as a stop. Unless someone has a better idea?

Your idea is a good one. It is an issue with the Victory drivers mount. One time I heard a strange noise when I hit a large bump. It was that plastic pushed down into the tire area. Normal riding was fine but a good compression of the shock allowed the tire to hit it.

Silly design issue but I think I'll like this backrest better than Utopia. It's too large for me. Backrest pad hits bottom of my shoulder blades. Be up for sale soon I think unless I find something worse about Victory version.
