    I have the standard comfort stitched backrest mounted on my 09 Ultra. It was done by the dealer, but I would like to know what holes the mount should be in on the fender, and how to decide where it should be mounted. It has three sets of mounting holes in the bracket. If I want it further back or forward, can I just move the mounting bracket.

    I have mine in the the last holes. I started in the middle one but wanted the backrest farther back. Just undo the bolts move the backrest tighten the bolts and ride. very easy to move.

    I think mine is in the second hole. I just lined it up with the hole in the seat.

    The simple answer to your question is yes, you can use any of the holes in order to position the the backrest where you want it.

    I understand that just was trying to find out what difference it made to the position before I started moving it.

    All the way back for me but it's good to be able to adjust.
