Hello, first time posting here. I recently bought a 2006 Vulcan 500 EN, I also purchased a sissy bar on ebay for my new toy. The sissy bar seems like it is good quality and was recommended to me by the dealership that I bought it at. Any who, I tried to install the sissy bar/backrest over the silver pieces that cover the frame and between the frame and the fender, both ways do not seem to fit without some serious forcing. Is there something that I am missing or is it more likely that the sissy bar does not fit my bike? Sorry I know this is a long winded intro post but I appreciate any help. When I get off work ill be able to post pics, thanks.
