    Hey guys, new Magnum X-1 owner here. Question concerning passenger backrests...does anyone know if the OEM Victory one will fit on the Magnum? And if so, is there mounting hardware that comes with it? I looked between my bags and am not sure where it would mount. I want to be sure before buying one. It's clean and simple and just right for what I need.[​IMG]

    They will fit on the Magnum if you take the fender fills out. They come with all the hardware required.
    Taking the fender fills out is emotionally painful.

    Oh well....guess it will be the HotVic option for me then. I won't be using it that much to justify making that major modification. Bought the bike for a reason.

    I put my fender fills back in 3 seconds after my wife said she no longer enjoyed riding on the back. (don't know what took me sol long)
    If I were doing it again I'd buy the seat from Mustang that uses plugin rider and passenger backrests.
    Switching seats is quickly done and the beautiful fender fills can stay.

    I went with the Hotvic one for the same reason, did not want to remove the filler panels. It is well made and looks good on the bike. Both my daughter and wife are pleased with it.

    I appreciate the feedback...that's the assurance that I was looking for. Definitely going to get it. Just wish I could find it a bit cheaper.

    Great thread. I, too, do not want to remove my fillers, especially since my wife doesn't ride that much with me. However, I do need a backrest of some sort for her. Is this the Hotvic that you guys are talking about? If so, how does it mount and how easy is to take on and off?

    Yes, that is the backrest we are speaking of. Install and removal is rather easy. Remove the two socket cap screws that secure the seat then the backrest is attatched with two bolts, five minute job.

    I'm running this on my 15 Magnum. It puts me a little closer to the bars but gives my wife a lot of room and is height adjustable. When she is not on I move it up to the drivers position. But most of the time I on my stock seat. The wife liked the seat and felt secure even in the highest setting. You can see it in my avatar

    Lots of threads on this. It mounts using the two bolts that hold the passenger strap on. Does not mount to the seat, mounts to the frame and is strong and does not touch the fender. I run one on my X1. Love it.

    @Headstrong2012 witchdoctor.com also sells the same backrest. Appears to be a few dollars cheaper. That is the one I'm going with.
