I have bought kuryakyn products before and have been very well pleased, but not this time. The brackets holes were to small in diameter for the backrest to fit into. I had to enlarge the holes in the brackets for the backrest assembly to fit, and you still have to force the backrest in.And besides that the stiching is crooked on the pad. Very displeased

I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.

A blessing

June 21, 2012

Good quality item. Tried other backrests but they pushed me too far forward and I felt like I was riding on the gas tank. This item is designed with an angle that allows for tremendous range if you reverse the installation. I can settle back in my seat and my back doesn't even notice the miles. Straight-forward install took less than an hour even with the addition of spacers (included) on my saddlebag mounts to provide clearance. Top notch product.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great purchase

February 27, 2012

I purchased a different brand backrest for my VStar 1100 & was extremely disappointed with the product, so when I needed a drivers backrest for my Harley I decided to try these. This backrest is very substantial & I have no doubt it will last as long as I have my bike. Would recommend to everyone needing a drivers backrest.

Nice backrest

January 7, 2011

I installed the backrest on my bike. I ran into two problems. First, one side of the backrest post didn't want to fit into the mount on the right side of the bike. It looks like some of the chroming got into the hole the post is supposed to fit into. So I did some filing and sanding and got it to fit but it's really tight and difficult to remove. May require a bit more sanding. Second, the lean angle of the mounts and the backrest pad were too extreme and I felt like I was almost sitting on the tank. After looking over the backrest I tried reversing the backrest pad on it's mount since it leaned toward the tank. After reinstalling the backrest this provided the needed lean toward the rear of the bike and I no longer feel like I'm sitting on the tank. The kit did not come with instructions to do this if necessary but it was the obvious way to go. I haven't taken the bike on a long trip yet but so far I like the backrest and the comfort it provides.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Needs work

September 17, 2010

I bought this backrest for my '93' softail FLSTC. I was looking for a rest that I could use for a solo seat that didn't look too "cookie cutter." In it's stock form I found the rest to be too tall and it had an uncomfortable angle where the pad met my back. After a bit of refinement (chopping) the backrest feels good and looks GREAT on my bike. If this backrest was offered in both solo and two up configurations it would make it a good fit right out of the box.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
