Hold on to your pads, folks.

I decided to try to save a hundred dollars or so by going with the Show Chrome backrest instead of the OEM one. I understand that one gets what one pays for, but at $160 plus mounting brackets I was hoping for better quality. Getting the brackets and upright installed was a breeze, even with all of the awkward angled spacers. Unfortunately, the mounting for the actual backrest cushion is a joke. There are six holes in the riser, but you only use two 5mm screws to hold it on. The other four are dummies. So what you get is a pad that wobbles like crazy at 45 mph before tearing off and bouncing down the road into a ditch. 3/5 for the framework, -1/5 for the cushion attachment. I shouldn't have to do my own engineering to make a product work and look as advertised.

Disappointed...

I could not mount this to my F6B, the spacers were too short to clear the hand rail ends. Very frustrating. I kept my factory stock one instead. It would of been a great product, if they had longer spacers.

eWorld great Wife Loves it!

It's well made and once you sort out the mounting you're good to go.
