    Cast Upright and Backrest Pad is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money In order for this product to go on a night Rod you also need the luggage rack which cost another 200$. It takes away from the true look of the bike, how Harley hasn't developed a detachable seat yet is beyond me for this bike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cast Upright Backrest - *Required Luggage Rack (not included) The backrest requires the luggage rack to be installed on the Vrod. The backrest is perfect for keeping a rider from sliding off the back of the bike. The backrest matches the style and nature of the bike and adds a level of security for the passenger. Leaves a perfect amount of space between the passenger and rider (average size).

    Q & A

    Can this backrest and rack be used with luggage?

    Can this backrest with the H-D rack be used to with any of the following H-D luggage? (Is the backrest tall enough to properly secure the H-D luggage?) Premium Rolling Touring Bag (93300008) Premium Touring Day Bag (93300017) Premium Sissy Bar Backpack (93300007) Premium Overnight Bag (93300005) Premium Touring Bag (93300004) Premium Touring Luggage System (93300003) If not, what are some good alternatives?
    Asked by: HockeyCoach
    Hey HockeyCoach, Keeping in mind the width and depth of the luggage rack, I would recommend the following bags for your VROD. Premium Touring Day Bag (93300017) Premium Sissy Bar Backpack (93300007) Premium Overnight Bag (93300005) Premium Touring Bag (93300004)

    Why is it taking so long for Harley Davidson to make a simple mounting plate for the optional backrest? I think the giant, silver luggage rack that is required to install the backrest on a 2014 VRSCDX is not only ugly, but almost completely covers up the fender with the awesome looking LED tail light. Can someone please make a mounting plate so that my wife will have a back rest? Thanks!

    Do I need tto have he luggage rack installed to have a backrest on a 2014 vrscdxspecial

    Asked by: Panda445
    Hello Panda445, You are correct! PN 52300016 is currently the only backrest we offer for a 2012-Later VRSCDX and it does require the purchase of PN 50300028 for installation on your model. Thank You!
