HD backrest

Hey all.
Has snyone installed the geniuene harley davidson back rest and luggage bar them selves?
I bought one from india but it doesnt fit right so i am getting my money back and purchasing a HD one. I dont want to pay the crazy labour fees from a stealer to do it.
Any tips would be great thanks

A lot of the nuts are very tight due to overuse of locktite.
When you get then out, use a wire brush to clean em up, it will make install easier.
When installing the knobs that the removable carrier attaches to, only take out one of the original screws at a time so the plate in the guard doesn't fall out.
The thicker spacers on the knobs go toward the back.
If you have bought the lockable removable clips as I did, I only installed one of them.
I'm sure I have listed the part numbers in the thread about luggage???
I'm very happy with mine, works well and looks good on the gloss black.
