HD Rider Adjustable Backrest Pad Defective?

Hi Everyone,

I ordered the adjustable rider mechanism and smooth backrest from Surdyke, and they just arrived.

Someone who has this can you please verify the backrest pad is defective? It came loose in a bag and in the bottom of the bag was the adjustment knob that it looks like is used to hold the pad in a vertical position. As you can see in the photos, the knob is not retained to the pad support - just loose. This can't be right as there is no way to adjust the height and get that adjustment knob to stay in position?

You are correct, it is defective. That should stay in place and spring loaded (pull/release) to raise and lower the pad.

Thanks, Bandit for the confirmation. Hopefully I can get Surdyke to quickly replace it.
