    trying to get the driver back rest off the Ultra. i can get the seat loose but cant figure out how to get the backrest loose.

    surely the pad comes off so i can slip the seat over it without having to reach under the seat and loosening the bracket.

    the back rest is not fixed it folds down. not sure if they all do that. this is my first HD

    On mine there is. a flipper at rear of metal stand up bar that holds pad up rite . Open up hole in seat w/ your fingers push back on metal flipper ..
    Now mine is the hydraulic rest..
    If you have the pinch style just push the 2 legs together ..pull up it can be tough..

    Reach into the rear of the slit in the seat the backrest goes through with your finfers. You should feel a "tab" on the backrest mount. Move it away from the backrest and pull up hard on the backrest. It should come out if you did it right.

    There are 3 different kinds.The old style where you slid the backrest up and tilted it back then it came out. Pain in the seat.(pun intended)
