Putting tour pak on a FLTRX

I'm thinking about getting a 2015 style tour pak to mount on my 2012 FLTRX. I found the part # to get one already painted in BBP to match my bike. My question for those of you who have added tour paks to your Custom is what all will I need besides the tour pak, backrest cushion, liner, quick detach mounting rack, and possibly speaker pods? I have the 4 point docking on the bike already.

Key lock, keyed to match your bike and premium hinges.
Also, order the one for a Road King, so you dont get one predrilled full of holes for the antenna!

Needs two wiring harnesses to connect rear speakers like factory setup. FLTR & FLTRX doesn't come with them.

'13FLTRX103, Pro Stage IV kit, V&H slip-ons, 10" Chubby apes, EG Ultra Tour Pak, RG lowers, more to come!

Sounds like you have everything you need to get started. I wouldn't call the premium hinges necessary although the stock hinges are butt ugly. A luggage rack for the lid may be a consideration. I also added the premium latches and retractable lid tether.

Sweet. Post pics once you get it on. I am considering putting a 14+ tour pack on my 13.

I added the 2015 Tour Pak to my 2013 FLTRX. All you need is the 2015 Tour Pak, 2015 mount, and back rest. Your 4 point docking station works perfect. The hinges on the new Tour Paks are fine. I did not add rear speakers so can't help you there.

Ok, just ordered all my stuff. Will post pics when I get it all and get it installed. Might be a while though, could take 6-8 weeks for tour pak since it's a painted item. Decided to hold off on the speaker pods for now. Will check into doing that a little later. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Thumbs down

IMHO, Pass on the retractable lid tether, they break and so does the tour pak when the lid flops all the way over. Get a Ultra brace from eGlideGoodies. Enjoy the Glide!!!!
