Default New Nightster/Iron sissy bar...

Anybody see this yet? It says it's removeable but it seems to me it would interfere with the rear signal/brake lights.... Just wondering if anyone has checked it out yet. I definately like the way it looks and will be picking one up if it is truly and easily removeable.

Thats not a Sportster in the pic (looks like a Dyna). The sideplates are shaped differently for Sportsters (era specific). For example, on my year, the sideplates have a cut out in them for the turn signals.

Hmm...wonder why they would choose to showcase a supposed sportster accessory on another bike??

I like the looks of it too! Was discussing it just the other day and you'll find if you look through the catalogue... the same style of sissy bar is being made available for the softails, dynas and sportsters. They even use the same sportster description in the softail section of the catalog for this sissy bar (most softail owners probably don't even know what a nightster or iron is jk). They also describe the sissy bar as having the perforated buckshot design that the nightster belt guard has (big round holes), yet this is not shown in any of the photos (which are all of BTs). And really, I'd much prefer if it came plain as pictured, but get the distinct feeling that when these hit the shelves for the sporties they might not resemble the pictures.

They often just use whatever pics they have handy in catalogs, not always model specific. Sometimes they update with the correct pics.

Ryn, this uses the same type of docking hardware as the detachable solo rack that I have on my Nightster. I just put it on this afternoon for my ride...took about 30 seconds to install. Very easy to take on and off and it doesn't come close to the rear lights.

Nice! That's exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks!
Guess I'll be picking one up soon.
