Do you have the 4 point mounting kit on the bike already? Front sissy bar notch attaches to the top of the shock, and then clips into the cam in the back. That’s on the ‘13. May be different on the ‘08.

look here

also check you tube. All kinds of info out there.

also, just go to Harley-Davidson.com and search for your model. Sorry dude but this stuff is all over the place you just need to look.

You have the old frame. You definitely need to look for kits that fit 2008 and earlier. 2009 up will not work.

Depends on what you’re installing. If you’re installing a tour pak, you need 53804-06. If you’re installing a sissy bar, you need 53803-06. If you will be using both a tour pak and a sissy bar when the pak is off, you need both.

So just a backrest I need the black kit that bolt near shock tower and then above rear back mount?

HD shows both kits and they gave me the tour pack mount number as the one I need.

So so even a real person at HD isnít always right. Thanks Dawg for clearing it up!

Yes



When in doubt, check the docking kit matrix
