Review Summary:
Just received these via Fed-Ex yesterday. I think I will wrap them for a Christmas gift from Santa, for my wife and me. A gift for her because she said she would like to have them ...and also a gift for me because they are going on my bike. (I have been married long enough to know that would come up) I rated these moderately easy to install and the comfort as good because I haven't put them on yet and had to choose something. I can revise that when I do install them after Christmas. The wife loved the tour-pak relocator and now she will have a place to rest her arms while she is stretching out. There is also a cup holder to hold her Starbucks, which isn't mentioned in the product description. I'll revise the review after I get them on and we can give them a test ride. …OK, got these put on last evening. I would still say they were moderately easy to install. When I read the instructions through, before going out to the garage, they looked a bit confusing. However when actually doing the job, the instructions and the photos made more sense. At first I was wondering if these things would really fit with the Kuryakyn Tour Pac Relocator already installed on there, but they did. It was close. The tour-pac relocator had a nice chrome mount under the tour-pac and it looked good, but the new arm rest bracket is black and almost completely obscures the chrome. Not sure why the bracket is black, but my new Ultra Classic is black and it didn't look too out of place. The black brackets are stamped right hand side and left hand side but nothing else is. Pay close attention to the instructions and you can figure it out. Before starting it tells you to remove the tour-pac liner but I would suggest also removing the saddle bags. It gives you easier access to the fasteners under the tour-pac and will prevent you from scratching them while working. You will also have to relocate the passenger head phone plug on the left hand side. A new bracket is included in the box. Over all opinion of the product is good. As usual, Kuryakyn make a quality and HEAVY duty product. The arm rests do not feel totally secure and do rattle a little bit. I haven't tried them with a passenger back there yet and that may make it better with someone's arms resting on them. Kuryakyn could probably make the quick attach details fit a little better, like Harley does with some of their quick attach items that slip into a rubber grommet on one end. I would recommend them if your passenger ask for them, but probably would not put them on otherwise. However, they are removable from the mounting bracket and you don't have to ride around with them on there all the time.
