Just a question

Did/Does the 2016 FLTRU come with the drivers backrest post pre-installed?

I took my seat off and there was a backrest receiving post already attached to the fender.

Is that standard? I looked online and all the driver backrests come with this receiving post so I am questioning if they installed one but then took the actual backrest off and left the post.

:nerd:

My 2016 RGU did NOT come with a backrest post. I had to buy it separately. Only thing it has was the long bolts coming through the fender that the backrests mount to. Unfortunately, with the Tallboy seat I had at the time, I had to use the standard backrest, and no matter how I had it arranged, it pushed me too far forward onto the tank (effectively back to where the stock seat had me sitting) so that the boys were getting crunched. Thankfully, I changed to a Mustang seat and now have a backrest that I can actually use.
