VIDEO-In this DIY video we show you how to easily install a detachable rider backrest hardware on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. In this video we used a Road King, but it is the same for most models. Save you money and let us show you how to do this, so you don't have to pay a mechanic. You can do it right in your garage on the kickstand with no specialty tools.
Having a detachable rider backrest on a Harley Davidson is very convenient for many bikers/motorcyclists. I often don't want the rider backrest on when going on short trips or around town. But for those long high mile days I can easily put the rider backrest on and head on down the road.
You can use your 2009 and up Harley Davidson rider backrest hardware on your 2014 & on Harley touring model! It fits and mounts exactly the same.
We also have another video where we do the same project on a Harley Davidson touring model:

Great video. Do you have the link on which backrest this is? I have a 2007 road king classic.
