Big Bike Parts® adds to the adjustability of its Smart Mount™ Backrests with a quick detachable design. The backrest seat mount and backrest mount have been redesigned to incorporate a slide lock system that allows the backrest mount to attach through the seat opening onto two lock bolts that easily secures the backrest. A little lift and pivot forward or back, depending on fitment, allows the entire backrest pad and assembly to be removed in seconds with no above the seat hardware visible. Big Bike Parts® views this as a running change so no price changes will be coming. All seven new quick detach Smart Mount™ Backrests are in stock and shipping.
REMOVABLE SMART MOUNT, Backrest Through the Seat, For GL1800 Goldwing Adjustable, 1" Vertical & 3" Horizontal , Made in USA
I made an adjustment that seems to work so far. I reversed the two bolts on the connection so that the fork shape seat mount slides down behind instead of the front and that gave me almost 1/2 an inch. We will see how it goes but itâ€™s a lot better.
First of all I know I have to get used to it but some things to consider are that I was hoping for a rest that would be an extension of the lumbar but this one will not go that low. It also should be adjustable back more. For me it's about a half to a full inch too far forward at its furthest back. Remember as well that when you use a backrest the protective spine on you jacket can be a little uncomfortable.
WELL, I WAS SURPRISED I HADN'T REVIEWED THIS ITEM- AS I SAID IN MY TITLE IT IS A GREAT FIT FOR ME, NOT TOO BIG,& NOT TOO SMALL FITS JUST RIGHT ,LOOKS GREAT TOO. THE NEW REMOVEABLE DEAL -I DON'T IF IT WILL FIT ON THE SMART BACKREST I'LL HAVE CK & SEE. SO YEA CK THIS THING OUT.
I had the other backrest on the bike,the one with the bars that attach to the passenger handles. It would not stay in position and could not adjust the rest up or down nor would it stay forward enough for me. Always would work itself back to the max position.
Decided to order the one that goes thru the seat.
Man what a better backrest! Once you get over cutting your seat, its a snap to install and has more versatility as far as adjustment for the driver, plus it gives the passenger more room that the one with the bars.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
