Cracked chopped tour pak lid with aftermarket backrest
Has anybody experienced this? I have a '09 model chopped tour pak with a Corbin backrest pad (picture shown) that I noticed last fall the lid had cracked at the front right corner on the outside, didn't go all the way inside. I contacted the dealer I bought it from, which was Tri-County HD in Fairfield OH. I took it my my local dealer who took a picture of it and sent it to Harley-Davidson. They had a local painter repaint it and I reinstalled it over the winter. Harley-Davidson asked the local dealer for their recommendation and that's what they came up with. The was relayed to the dealer I bought it from. I was concerned about matching up the CVO color for one and fixing the crack and repainting. We rode yesterday for the longest ride since winter, about 7 hrs, and I noticed at one stop it was cracked again, just like before.
Has anyone experienced this with an aftermarket backrest? Of course the local dealer blamed it on the backrest and Motherwell detachable tour pak mount. I disagree.....what should I do now?
