The bolts on the rear fender area hold the sissy bar as well as the rear fender. I had the same difficulties. you will have to buy long bolts that will fit through the sissy bar and through the chrome and then through the fender. I found this out the hard way when I removed the sissy bar and did not replace the bolts. the rear fender was close to falling off the bike.
the bolts are found in diy stores. the only restriction is to make sure the bolt does not go into the area of the rear wheel so that it might come in contact with the tyre.

If I order the sissy bar back rest for my 1985 Yamaha V-Max how do I instal it. It looks like a two piece set up but don't know. Will I have to drill holes or modify my bike to instal the sissy bar?

Presuming that the cissy bar is designed for the bike, there is no need to drill holes. There is a chrome curve mounted on the rear mudguard by two allen bolts. You remove the two bolts and depending on the make of the cissy bar you have simply use the bolts to fix the cissy bar over the top of the original chrome.

There are dozens of cissy bars from various aftermarket manufacturers, so it's hard to be precise. Some come with a spacer that fits into the recess on the chrome curve to hold the side of the mounting away from the chrome, some don't. Some come with extended bolts for you to use, some don't. All in all however it's a very simple and fairly intuitive bit of kit and should only take you about 15 minutes to bolt up.

If you would like to drop a comment on this thread with the make and model of the item you plan to buy, and if you have it, a link to the item so that I can take a look at it, I'll give you some more information about fitting, but you really shouldn't need any. It really is an easy job

How do remove the seat? I've removed the bolt attached to the rear fender. The book says to pull the seat back to release the hook from the frame? The seat doesn't want to pull back toward the rear.

If you have a sissy bar on the bike, you'll have to lift the rear of the seat a bit to get the clearance necessary for the seat to slide to the rear. If that doesn't work, take the sissy bar off by removing the two small bolts on either side of the sissy bar side plates. With the sissy bar off, the seat should come off easily.

Good Luck

How to change low sissy bar on a 2000 FLSTC

Look on either side of the sissy bar down near the base. There are usually two bolts on each side. Remove these bolts and the sissy bar pulls out of the side plates which stay on the bike.

Good Luck
