    Hi all,
    Just wanted to know if anyone has used this combo of items together.???

    52738-94A (Mini Rail Sissy Bar Upright) will not fit with luggage rack,(Five Bar Sport Luggage Racks P/N 53862-00) why?
    The taller one (52735-85) works just fine with rack. But text on MoCo site says they do not work together. But I'm using them together now, just want to use mini or short instead. Here is text from MoCo site:
    52738-94A

    Fits '04-later XL models with detachable sideplates, '06-later Dyna® models (except FXDF, FXDFSE/2 and '10-later FXDWG), '84-'05 Softail® models (except FXSTD) and '06-later FL Softail® models (except '06 FLSTFSE2, '07-later FLS, FLSTF, FLSTFB, FLSTSE/2/3 and FLSTSB) with appropriate sideplates. Does not fit with Five Bar Sport Luggage Racks P/N 53862-00 and 53939-03.

    Any idea why they would say this? No longer carry a passenger, but still want to use rack on occasion. 02 FXSTI/Detachable side plates.
    Any feedback is appreciated
    Thanks, Eric
