What parts are missing? Can you put a couple of pics on here so we can get a better idea of what you need. They are pretty simple to put on, kinda easy.

There are two side rails that mount "through" the 1500's passenger grab handles. You'll see that the mounting point has one "spacer" welded to the side rail mounting plate, and one without the spacer.

Typically, "Missing parts" for mounting are:
* The second pair of spacers (one each side) -- that should be the exact same length and size as the one welded to the mounting.
* qty=4 bolts - these replace the OEM seat mounting bolts (8mm and are long enough to get all the way through the spacers (above) and mounting plate (you can measure the OEM bolt length and add the spacer length and plate thickness to find exact length needed)
* qty=4 washers for under the bolt heads...
Siderail hardware'll look like this installed (thanks AZgl1500):




Once the bike-side rails are loosely attached to the bike, you should be able to thread an adjuster nut and its washer onto each leg of the backrest's frame and stuff things together so that you can snug-up the bike/seat mounting bolts.
* Adjuster nut first - threads point toward the open end

* Then Washer


Kinda like that or ...

Satan:

Thanks for the info, the spacers and the bolts are missing, with your info i will fabricate the spacers and buy the bolts.

Also, i'm doing the rear bracket ( looks like aluminum ) of the pad, because the original is broken ( 1 part is missing ).

The pictures help a lot.

again Thanks
