Ordered my sissy bar today but would like to know how hard it is to install and will I have to do any drilling.
its not hard but you do have to do some drilling through the fender. the holes are pre-marked under the fender. my girlfriend and i did it in a couple hours after running to the hardware store for the right drill bit size.

+1 Very easy, just remove the fender, turn over and drill at the marks, I have done 2 so far, the directions are very good for once.

i used a step bit to drill the holes it worked great and left a smoth hole with no shavings. i couldn't find a metric bit anywhere.

As stated already, it's really easy. I was about to drill my fenders, but I didn't want any holes for when I run my solo pad, so I returned my sissy bar.

Agree to the point of it being easy. When I installed mine I used fender washers to lift the sissy bar up a little because I didn't want the chrome bars resting on the fender.

How long does it take to get the sissy bar from the dealer? I want to take a trip this weekend, but I don't know if I'll have time to get the part before we have to leave.

I didn't get mine from the dealer... and I also ordered it much earlier in the year, but for me, it took about 1.5 weeks.

does the sissy bar mount just to the fender? If so, how well will it work. I do not want my rear fender ripped apart if my wife leans back too hard, or have her fall off!
You drill through the fender (pre-marked holes so no screw-ups there) and then through-bolt it to the frame.
