Awsome addition to any bike that you will ride two up on. Fit and finish--total COBRA quality instalation a snap, the large pad fits my classic perfectly!! Wife likes the size and comfort too!! Get one you wont regret it. RIDE ON
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
This cobra sissy bar fits great, and is easy to install, I put it on my 05 vtx1300 and it looks great. the pad on the backrest was bigger than i expected, and my wife loves it, good support for her. Nice heavy duty unit, would rec. to anyone.
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.
This sissy bar is built very solid. It looks good in chrome and black, and goes with the optional luggage rack. At first it didn't seem to fir my bike properly, the side brackets seemed too narrow for the sissy bar. But I just loosened the screws, put it all together and gradually tightened everything and it all came together just like it was supposed to.
The only real hitch I ran into as that my saddle bags also use the same mounting bolts. So even though the sissy bar comes with longer screws, I had to get even longer ones. Just something to be aware of if you are doing a similar setup.
Just bought brand new 09 Boulevard C50, first day I had the bike and installed the new backrest. Easy install and looks great. The short 14" provides good support and doesn't stick up to high and look dorky. I also like the wide pad which will provide a nice support for my passengers. I searched pretty extensively online and found Dennis Kirk to have the best pricing. I also bought the Cobra slashdown exhaust and Demon gradient windshield from these guys and all look great on the bike.
I have been a motorcyclist for over 50 years and have always customized my bikes but have never ordered a product online prefering to see the item first before spending my hard earned money. I happened to log into Dennis Kirk and found what I was looking for and with much apprehension ordered this sissybar. The price, shipping time and the quality of the products was ... I don't know how else to say it but what an awesome experience!!! Thank you Dennis Kirk, you have earned all of my future business.
Looks good on the bike...pad was wider than expected, but the girlfriend loves the support it gives. The fit of the pad cover could be a little better...it's not on completely straight, but nobody should really notice or care. Price is pretty steep, but overall I like the looks of it...complements my bike well.
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!!
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.
