    i have a factory victory backrest and mount for a vision. Will that mount work on a cross country? I have seen conflicting answers elsewhere. Tia

    I don't recall ever seeing they were the same. The Vision and Cross saddles are pretty different and are not interchangeable so I would guess the backrest mounts would be different.

    BUT, I don't know for sure.

    My Utopia mount is bolted to the seat on my Vision, not sure if the OEM backrest bolts to the bikes frame like the XC does. Then there's the Frame and seat difference...

    Your bracket listing shows sissy strap.

    I cut my strap off. It's pointless anyway.

    Put some washers under the mount to avoid crushing the brake lines on an ABS bike. They made the mount unnecessarily wide.
