Burly Brand Tall Sissy Bar & Pad For Harley Sportster

If you have been looking for a sissy bar for your Sportster, you already know that there is little to nothing out there that looks cool, is simple to install, and is good quality at a reasonable price. Burly realized this as well and decided to take matters into their own hands. What they came up with was this classic styled, one-piece round-stock sissy bar that mounts to outside of fender rails for simple install and removal. Includes a black covered pad already mounted up and ready to go. This beauty is fully TIG welded right here in the good old USA. The Burly Short Sissybar is also available. 

Features:

  • 20" tall by 12.5" wide at the mounts
  • Black powder-coat or show chrome finish
  • Includes pad and stainless hardware
  • Made in the USA

Note: Sissy bars are great for supporting things, but they are not made to fully support someone that you care about.

Great Bar but CHEAP hardware
Everything about the bar itself is top notch, including the packaging. The mounting bolts are another story.

The heads are smaller than the stock bolts and don't fully cover the Bosses on the sissy bar. As a result when you try to torque the bolts they spin on the boss and chew off the paint.

Do yourself a favor, go to Home Depot and buy two stainless 2" long allen cap scews and two that are 2 1/2" inches long. The thread size is 5/16-18. Also a pack of stainless washers (the washers OD is the exact size as the boss on the sissy bar).

The torque spec on the instructions is questionable. It calls for 18 ft lbs. Normal torque for that bolt is 11 ft lbs. and Harley calls out 8-13 ft lbs. I would be careful not to damage the fender or strut. I am going to stick with 13 ft lbs.

Bottom line is a top notch sissy bar that I would gladly pay extra for to have decent mounting hardware.

Well-made and easy to install
Title says it all, really - I had initially bought a cheaper (and inferior) sissy bar from a certain auction website and the difference between that and the Burly version was like arctic night and tropical day.

Clean welds, simple to install and just the right dimensions. I'm using it solely for luggage, not a passenger, so I can't speak to the comfort level, but I'm pretty damned happy with the purchase.

One minor point - the longer bolts supplied with this use an imperial, not metric, allen wrench. Took me a little digging to find one of those in my toolbox.

Quality is amazing
I was debating between this sissy bar and the one that HD sells , but decided to go with this one since the bottom portion that attaches to the bike was slimmer and cleaner than the HD one. Its definitely not a quick release type of sissy bar and is kind of a pain in the butt to install.

Tips: Make sure all bolts are in before tightening. If you insert one bolt at a time and tighten them, you won't be able to align it correctly to get the other bolts in. w

Awesome, simple sissy bar
This sissy bar is awesome, I put it on my 72 and it looks and functions great. I have custom made seats so I sent in the pad it came with in to get it stitched up with real leather to match. I feel like if you know how to weld it wouldn't be too hard to replicate, that's the only reason the bang for your buck isn't rated all the way up. Otherwise I love this thing.

Great Product
The only question that you need to ask yourself is "Why haven't you got this yet and what size do you want!?!?"

The truth, you should have already purchased it, and you want to get the bigger, taller one! Do it!!! Don't ask Lemy, or your wife. If you don't have enough money, go barrow some, get some from a ho-bow, or get a tip jar and tell jokes. This is a MUST buy for EVERYONE!

Looks and works great on my 2016 Roadster. Warning on Installation!
I bought this for my 2016 Roadster. It does fit well and looks good. If you are installing this sissy bar on a 2016 Roadster you will need 2 extra bolt nuts, which was not included in the mounting hardware. Also the 2016 Roadster's bullet lights uses two mounting ports which the sissy bar will use one so you have to consider that. Overall, I made it work and it looks good
and functions well.

Looks rad, feels rad.
Hey everyone, just wanted to do a quick review of the Burly Tall Sissy Bar that I got for my 2013 Harley Sportster Seventy-Two. I have yet to ride with a passenger with it because I have yet to pick up a back seat or pillion like I plan on doing soon but I really like the way it looks so far with just the bar. I have gotten a couple compliments that it really brings the bike together which made me feel good with my purchase. Very easy to install by yourself, if you can screw in a lightbulb than you can do this yourself and it is pretty sturdy. Highly recommend it.

Best Purchase Ever
I bought this because I took a passenger on a four hour ride on the back of my sportster and by the end of it, she was not a happy camper. After purchasing this, no complaints from passengers. They're actually comfortable to text and snap pictures while riding.

I also load my guitar, stool and bookbag for gigs I play. Also have loaded this bad boy up with camping gear for a weekend retreat with my MC. No scratches or anything and it's just great for those times you have big items you need to transport.

*Note: Make sure passenger pads are screwed in tight. Lost one but no biggie!

Get this... It will change your life!!! (Also add on some cool points!)

**I bought this for my iron 883 not the 80 cx500.

This is a classically styled accessory which fits the look for which I am aiming.
Chaps on Jul 19, 2016
Def the cleanest mount and look in my opinion. Great build quality and finish. Very sturdy! I run a solo seat with a fender rack when no pillion and I love being able to bungee bags. Also used it to assist in picking bike up after going down due to cager-text situation. Burly gets a lot of love for this one!

I frequently travel distance and have multiple bags that I hang off of the bike. With this, I can strap bags or carry a passenger. The pad is removable, so it ends up being the best of both worlds. Plus, it looks badass

can it fit 1999 sportster?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 2004 and up only
Will this fit a 2016 iron 883 n?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sure will. I installed it on my 2015 Iron... and it looks great. The 2016's aren't any different.
Help,

I'm about to order this bar or the short one and am having a hard time looking and finding that pad that bolts into the back. The wife is going to need some cushion but I can't find any one anywhere! Does anyone own one? or can give me the product name and maker so I can order it with the short or tall sissy bar?!?

Thanks guys and gals
A shopper on Oct 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Purchased the tall sissy bar which came with the backrest pad. The pad is not a good quality one though but the sissy bar is extremely strong. my wife is 5'2 and she finds it comfortable enough to lean back.
And you can put any other rest pad with it, just make sure that the looks dosent get spoiled. :)

Hello,
Does it include special bolts or something? or does it use the ones of the fender?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It comes with new longer bolts that go where the fender bilts are mounted. Secure enough for another passager love it.
Hello,
Does this tall sissy bar need any special bolts/hardware to install it? or does it use the fender bolts?
John S on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All required hardware is included(longer bolts). Bolts right to the fender struts
is it safe for a passenger to lean back on??
according to your on-line video it may not be, if not the pad is misleading--
Thanks
A shopper on Sep 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The bar is bolted to the fender struts. So it's pretty sturdy if you do the job right. I've had female passengers ranging from 90 to 150 lbs. It's safe. I can practically lift my bike up by the sissy bar. In case your wondering yes I've tried.

The only thing is that the pad might and by might I mean it definitely is uncomfortable. If your buying this for comfort you are buying the wrong product. This has two jobs provide a single piece sissy bar, and look good doing it. This does both well.

You'll be hard pressed to find a sissy bar with these looks at this price and this ease of installation.
Just wondering if the pad on the tall burly sissy bar is removable?
A shopper on May 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is screwed on with 2 screws very easy but there is a bracket built in to the sissy bar that goes across the pillar.. I love it, it's installed on a nightster looks great very pleased with it!
Will it easily fit my 2016 1200C Sportster?
Shannon K on Jul 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes this item fits real easy. I just removed the existing four screws put on sissy bar and tightened scews at the same time. Done. Looks great. Changed look with not much effort. My bike is 1200 custom 2008.
what seat is the guy rocking? looking for 2-up for my iron that doesnt look ridiculous
Jonathon H on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have this sissy bar with the following seat - the seat is way more comfortable than the original seat on my 2014 883

http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/mustang-fastback-seat-for-harley-sportster-with-33-gallon-tank-2004-2015
I was wondering if it will work fine to put this bar on my 1200 Custom. I have saddlebags that I can definitely unscrew, but would I be able to put the saddlebags over the sissy bar on the fender strut while still being secure enough to hold my saddlebag load?
Francisco S on Dec 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it will work with bolt on bags. I'm using throw over bags that work well.
