Personally, I hate the way sideplates look. I ended up putting on a Kuryakyn "Plug n' Play" unit that holds the sissy bar without using sideplates. It's mostly hidden under the seqat and comes off with the seat, so it's very easy to switch to solo mode. Actually Kuryakyn are re-selling some other vendor's (can't recall who, somewhere on the east coast, JB Performance maybe...) product, but they were about $30 than other places I've seen it...dynaglide dillo said:Dave, I am looking for side mount plates and other parts to get my rear fender cleared off.
Installation was simple. Don't have to remove the wheel. Take off the seat, remove the black plastic plug from the existing forward fender hole (provided for solo seats) put a blind nut in the hole (get it from the dealer or a catalog), place the bracket on the fender, put the front screw in, put the seat back on and put the seat hold-down screw in.dynaglide dillo said:Thanks Boismier, I like the look of it. Does it look like it might interfere with throw over bags?
Its about the same price as the detachable side plates , but as you point out, it is mostly under the seat. Did you have to remove the wheel to install it?
