2016 vs 2017 rider backrest

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if the mounting is the same from 2016 to 2017 for a rider backrest.

Thanks guys

I'm using a Mustang Rider Backrest (Part Number: 79610) and it states 2009-2017 works fine

I tried a Kuryakn on my 17 RGU and it was a tad to low and rubbed the top of the seat more than I wanted it to

I'm using the HD adjustable rider backrest; same one I had on the '13. The frame is the same so it should fit no problem.

I figured they were similar/the same.



Thanks y'all.
