I was not about to cut my seat regardless of all the good reviews other back rest received! When I came across this product I was willing to give it a try. I am 5'9" about 210 pounds and I must say this backrest "fits me perfectly!" I do not care about the arm rest, they are for the queen that sits behind me. She said, "she likes them" and that was good enough for me!
I agree with the other reviews that the armrest are good. You do not have to move them to open the truck, all that good stuff. The depth of the backrest is not able to be adjusted easy. The tensioning devices are almost impossible to loosen and tighten without a wrench of some type. The device is so close to the seat that you cannot grasp it easily. Do not get me wrong the backrest, once installed, is great, feels and looks goods. But if it makes your passenger uncomfortable and you want to move the backrest, you better have some soft jawed pliers ready.
If you plan to mount this and never move the backrest, I highly recommend the product. If you think you may ever want to adjust it while you are away from tools, do not purchase this one. I have since purchased just the armrest, I agreed that they were good,and have placed my old backrest back on the bike. Since the return policy states I cannot return something that has been mounted, I will soon post the compo for sale.
I am not complaining about WingStuff's return policy. This is a great web site. I just wish I had read a review like mine before I purchased this product.
Just fitted my new Combo and WOW what a comfortable ride for me now. Just sit back and relax against the backrest. The wife and kids love the armrests when they wish to use them but all in all a great product at a great price. East to install if you read the instructions. The chrome looks fantastic. Makes the bike look better than ever!! Not many in Australia, but worth the freight charges all the same. Thanks Wingstuff. Great service from all the staff that helped with my emails as well.
Love the engineering,1) not having to spread the armrests to open the trunk 2) not mounted to plastic trunk causing stress and cracking RATHER they mount to the structural member of the bike. 3) Infinitely adjustable position (foreward or back for driver) 4)Variable backrest height adjustment (3 position) 5) easy swing out design for passenger mount / dismount
6) Armrest at good height for both tall and short passengers 7) Bracketry is tucked in tight so as not to rub on passenger thighs 8) easy installation with clear instructions
I installed this on the new bike, I love the fact that you can open the trunk without moving the armrest out but the reason for the 4 stars is the backrest is stationary and when the wife gets on and off the bike it is harder than the flip forward model. I do like it myself but Donna would prefer the flip model so I might be changing soon?????
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
