    I have a detatchable passenter backrest and it had the triangle holder on so I thought I would bling up the bike by buying the $45 backrest : "

    Styled Backrest Mounting Plate
    This custom Backrest Mounting Plate replaces the stamped metal mount for a distinctive look. The mirror-finished bracket, chrome-plated mounting hardware and Vivid Black insert contrasts with a leather or vinyl backrest pad to dress your Touring bike in style. 52825-05 Fits Touring models equipped with Detachable Sissy Bar Upright P/Ns 52805-97B, 52935-04, 52933-97B, 52935-04, 52723-06, 52610-09, 52627-09 or 52935-04.

    The question I have is that there is a little wiggle on the backrest pad that wasn't there before - is this common? Any suggestions n how to get rid of the wiggle?


    Thanks

    Are you able to use different length bolts to draw up more tightly and can you move up trim for better contact on bar. I would think that the movement over time will wear or tear backrest pad.
