very comfortable,sleek & elegant in looks

Installed this on my 1996 clean. It moved me to far forward but after turning the back pad mount 180 degrees and then installing the bar 180 degrees opposite the back pad was located farther back and placed everything in a comfortable position with no bending or machining. Still plenty of room for my passenger also.

Fast delivery. This Driver Back Rest pitched me to far foreword and had no flection in the recoil. I found it to be more like a wall. I returned it and they were gracious about it.

Installed on a 1994 H-D Heritage Softtail. Had to remove the saddlebags and loosen the side guards. Also had to use bolts that were 1/2" longer that stock. Other than that, it went on easy and was adjustable as advertised. Total time 1 hour Posted:

with some modifications this back rest transformed my harley into a sofa like comfort, very happy

Kuryakyn quality is second to none and that's why I settled for this product. It seemed expensive but I'm very glad I went with my gut. Very stout, awesome chrome, easy to install and cool little pocket built into the back of the b-rest. One thing you need to know..this will straighten your back and you will ride more forward. If this is not your style you'll need to bend this baby a little towards the rear of your bike. I did this with little trouble. Now comfy & I can ride all day ! Hafton Bremerton, WA

Pretty nice product, although rather pricey for what it is. Backrest frame needed spacers to fit on the bike, and I had to grind the angle adjusting nut that is welded to the frame to allow the backrest to lean back slightly. It was leaning way to far forward.
