Great Product!
I purchased this Cobra Sissy Bar because it would work on my VTX 1300C w/ Leather Lyke bags. The quality of the chrome is excellent. It fits properly. I think the low style looks best on my bike and the stitching on the pad actually matches my Mustang Sport Tour seat. It is comfortable for my passenger and the pad can be removed for a single chrome bar look. I have Cobra pipes and a Cobra luggage rack. Everything I have received from Cobra has been first class! They are definitely a quality manufacturer. Dennis Kirk back ordered my luggage rack. Two days later I called to get the status and it had already shipped! They are also a first class company to do business with!

Sissy Bar for the Vulcan 900
Looks great in conjunction with the mustang seat. Fit and finish were great. I had no porblem fitting in along with my saddleman saddlebag supports, just didn't use the provided spacers and it fit perfect.

Wife loves it, and it doesn't chenge the looks of the bike to much, actually looks good.

If you gotta have a sissy bar..........
If you gotta get one this is a nice one for sure. Like many others my better half wanted a bar for comfort and security. This bar met my expectations and is very well built. I think all sissy bars are priced too high but you get what you pay for. Anyway, you won't go wrong with this one and the pad is very comfy. It came with a insert on back so that is a bonus.

Cobra Short Round Sissy Bar w/Pad
The 'Short' round sissy bar w/pad is a great item! it's high quality, good diameter bar, high quality finish, and the pad is great. The pad is thick, the shape contours to my wife's back extremely well. We purchased the 'short' bar because it's the 'middle' height. The shortest one barely exists, the short one (this one) hits her right in the lower back. The 'normal' height one is too tall.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MY BIKE HAS THE ULTIMATE SEAT BRAND driver AND passenger seats. They're thick, they add about 2 inches to the seat heights compared to the STOCK seat for a Honda VT 750 (Aero 750).
Bottom line is that the Cobra short round sissy bar w/pad is fantastic. The only thing I don't score as EXCELLENT is the price. Honestly, it's just too dang expensive in my opinion. It IS HIGH QUALITY but it's about $50 more than it should be priced. I think this is true of ALL brands, not just Cobra.
The bottom line is that it's worth the money for the extra comfort and safety as well as the appearance it adds to a cruiser. I wish it was a little cheaper but I'm completely satisfied with it. Super easy install and I expect it to last forever.
Perfect gift for fellow riders or to make sure your copilot can lean back comfortably at 80mph and feel 100% safe and secure.

Solid backrest
This is a quality product but pricey. My bike is a VN900B. However, if you have saddle bags such as with Vulcan name you will need longer bolts than what come with. You will need 4 pcs of 8 mm x 70 mm long. Also at least 4 washers. I purchased bolts with an allen screw head and grade number 8.

Most Excellent!!!
This Cobra Sissy Bar from Dennis Kirk fits my bike perfectly, chrome seems of excellent quality! I bought the round style, looks great on my Honda VTX 1800C and gives my passenger a very nice, comfortable pad to rest against while riding!
Shipping was quick, good instructions, I would highly recommend both this product and the company of Dennis Kirk, "Most Excellent"!!!

Installed with minimal issues and looks real good
Installed this on a 2014 Stratoliner. Was worried about not looking as good as Star accessories backrest, but was pleasantly surprised. Bolted right up with the hard bags and brackets. Used supplied spacers from kit. Did need to use longer bolts due to kit is not specifically made for Stratoliner with hard bags.
