Reviews for Cobra Short Round Sissy Bar w/Pad - 02-8651
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Fast delivery , wife feels safer on the bike ( a big plus) great product , thanks DKI would recommend this item to a friend.

Just what we needed
My wife and I purchased this for my son's M50 Boulevard. Great choice. The fitting was with little adjustment and the look was right on. The "short" height was perfect with plenty of support and security for his fiance to safely ride along. Good product for the budget. Now we have two more to ride along with us. Thanks, fella's!!I would recommend this item to a friend.
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Good quality but Bad Fit
The finish of the product is great. But if you are looking to purchase this for passenger comfort then you might want to reconsider. The pad touched the thicker passenger seat on my V2K Classic and was a kidney beater. I returned this product and got the taller one. Would probably work better if I had the thinner passenger seat that comes on the Limited or regular V2K.I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.
Great Sissy Bar for VStar 1300
I purchased this Cobra sissy bar for a V Star 1300 to provide back support for my wife. The product installed very easily; took longer to unpack than to install. Regarding installation...the product includes two sizes of bolts to install the brackets to the fender and I found the install works better if the longer bolt size is used in all four places. I called Cobra and they immediately mailed two of the longer bolts. The other solution is to swap the bolt sizes stated in the instructions. The round back rest is huge and provides plenty of support, the wife loves it. The round bar looks great, chrome is great. We strap a medium sized Saddleman bag to the bar and it works well for extra storage. If I had purchased the sissy bar solely for looks, I would have purchased the Cobra Square Short or Mini. But for passenger support, I don't think you can beat the Short Round bar and with the round pad. Thanks to DennisKirk.com for matching prices and including their great service and super quick shipping. By the way, I have since installed Easy Brackets to the cobra sissybar plates and they all work perfectly together.I would recommend this item to a friend.
