Detachable tour-pak help

Today I got a "detachable tour-pak kit for electra glide classic" #533303-07 so I could start using my tour pak (2004). I have a detachable sissy bar I've been using for several years. The two do not match. If you notice the sissy bar mount points are farther apart and the mechanisms are on the out side and on the tour pak part they are on the inside. The tour pak piece will not fit over the chrome top frame covers either. I would hate to have to buy another sissy bar. Whats going on here? I could use sure use some help please.

On my 06 Glide I had a detachable backrest and the matching kit installed. A year later I decided to install a detachable tour pak. The detachable tour pack mounts are different than the detachable backrest mounts, as you can see by your pic. Now you have to buy a different kit to mount the tour pak. You cannot switch between backrest and tourpak, it's one or the other.
I went with the tourpak, the backrest is still hanging up in the garage.

Take your pictures into the harley parts department, and they will get you set up with the mounting brackets needed to make the tour pack fit on your bike.

What? Really. The reason I shelled out another $300+ to HD was so I could use both.

Damn. I can swear the salesman said he uses the sissy bar and pak on his personal ride. I really do not want to have one OR the other.

I have both a detachable tour pack and sissy bar/pad, using the trunk only when traveling with the missus. Your problem may be that you have two point mounting hardware and you need the four point system. The 2 or 4points don't include the built in forward mounting points that are a part of the bike. My bike is a 2011. Road glide. No idea if this is relevant to yours.

You have to have a set for the backrest and a set for the tour pak both. You can have the mount points on at the same time and use one or the other the tour pak or the backrest.
Does that make any sense?

Perhaps there is hope. My current set up does look different from what I have seen on line.


Thanks for giving me hope guys.

As far as I know, at least in my 2003 RK, the mount point closer to the seat where you lock the end of the tourpack or the sissy bar, is the same, this is why you cannot have both at the same time. It would be nice to be able to have both but the weight would be a lot. I have problems now with the saddlebag support kit breaking because of the vibrations and the weight. For my RK I don't think it will work.

Just for clarification, all I want is to be able to switch between sissy bar no TP and TP no sissy bar. Not both at same time.

This is correct. With the right mounting hardware you can switch between the tour pak and a back rest in seconds. I had both on my 07 RG. I should have just saved the money though and bought a regular non-detachable solid TP mount. Once I had the TP on the bike, it was so handy to have I never took it off.

If memory serves me right the part your going to need it on page 359 of the 2012 P&A catalog. It's (C) at the top of the page 53803-06 or 53804-06 It allows different docking points for the backrest and TP. The TP cant use the same points as the BR because it would too far forward and the passenger wouldn't have much seat left.

Double check me with your parts guy as I've been known to be wrong before but I'll bet this part will get you going.

On Edit...
Geoff listed both part numbers below and depending on your use it could be either so I changed my post here to reflect it also.

After reading this thread through again this morning, I was wondering why I didn't have the capability of using both my tourpak and backrest. I don't know where I initially got this idea.... hence my previous post. The more I thought about it, the more pissed I got so I went out to the scoot to take another look. What a dumbazz!!!!1 I took off the tourpak and dusted off the ol backrest and VOILA' ( I think this is french ) the backrest went on. I take the tourpak off when I'm riding solo with the guys and I never attempted to put the backrest on. I am both embarassed to be a chump ( not the 1st or last time) and happy to find out I can use both! I dug out my records and took a few pics, I hope they help someone. The part numbers are in the pics. I just want to thank all you guys that post on this forum, this is the best place to get info and swap experience with other knuckle busters.

It sounds like you got it under control. I was planning to do the same and never did.

This leaves me with a brand new wall mount for the tour pack. Interested?
