ST1300 Stealth Backrest® Installation
|We at Pirates Lair have
designed the ST1300 Stealth Backrest to be a
very easy install. It will fit every model year ST1300 up through 2012. Basically..just remove the (4) screws securing the black plastic rear piece
and replace with our bracket. Install time will be about 10 minutes.. 30
if you are nursing a beer... a few days if you lose one of the factory spacers
during install. Be
Warranty In case you are unaware... Pirates' Lair will replace the bracket or internal hardware FREE of CHARGE for a period of ONE YEAR from date of purchase should your bracket or internal pieces break. As of this writing, I would assume that the good people at Sargent Cycle will warranty the upholstery portion as well. Questions? 828.628.7093 EST
Step 1 : Factory Plastic Rack Plate Removal
Step 2: ST1300 Stealth Bracket Installation
I'll leave it up to you, but I would recommend using a drop of Blue
LOCK-TITE on the screws you are about to install. The Stealth Bracket
is designed to remain on the bike semi-permanently.
Step 3: Backrest Usage
1. Slide the
backrest all the way in.
Caution should be used when sliding the backrest on and off the bike. If
your seat is in place, the abrasive action of the slide bar against the
seat material will cause long term damage. Always place something between
your seat and slide bar when installing or removing. Se comprende? Pirates'
Lair will not be responsible for replacing seats that have been damaged
due to the neglect on "your" end.
Also..it has been determined that during heavy rain, water will run down the back of our backrest and bypass that cheesy little rubber water channel situated just behind and under your seat. So far we have NOT found a quick fix for this, but we are working on it. We strongly advise you place your underseat valuables in a zip lock or other water-proof container in order to safeguard your stash..er... personals.
