I ordered two BakUp backrests, one for my bike and one for my wife. I have a 05 V-Star 1100 Custom and she has a 04 V-Star 1100 Classic. The mounting for my bike was slightly difficult because the stock seat for my bike is longer than the mount for the backrest allows, so you will end up squeezing the rear portion of the seat under the backrest mount. Once you have it on it loks great and feels even better when you ride with it. On the other hand my wife's bike went together easy and I was even able to use the stock bolts to attach her backrest on. Now the only thing I need to do is get an upolstry shop to match the leather on the backrest to my seat and pillion. Semper Fidelis Tien C. Nguyen GySgt USMC (Ret.)

Simple yet very effective in the way it works. I am very happy with my new backrest. It is much better now with it. I really look forward to trips on my bike now. Thank you very much for such a fine and comfortable product.

This backrest was very easy to install and it makes riding SO comfortable. I'm kind of short so I was worried about not being able to adjust if forward/backward, but it fits me perfectly. I love it.

Great addition to my vstar 1100 classic. Easy to install and looks as if factory. Very comfortable.

Got two, one for me and one for the wife. Works great and looks just as good. It was pretty easy to install.

I purchased several items for my 06 v-star. This one has increased comfort and instalation was super easy. Don't know why I rode without the bak up.

So far, so good. This product has definitely taken the strain off my back and has made my ride much more comfortable. I commute every day, so I am on my bike 7 days a week (got to play on the days off too). My only complaint is that it seems to make my riding postion awkward, which could be because of my crappy posture. This product seems to push me too far forward making it a much more uncomfortable ride for my butt and my legs. I feel like I need to put highway bars and pegs to give my legs another option and a gel pad for my backside. If we are talking support for your back, then it does the job and is very easy to install. If I had to do it all over again, I might have ponied up the cash for a Mustang seat with backrest, but I do not regret my purchase by any means,

The back rest was very easy to install 10 minutes. It does move you forward but, My wife loves it on her V star 650. The only thing she would have liked is for it to be able to have a height adjustment. well worth the price for our long rides.Great craftsmanship. I have always had drivers backrest on all my bikes since I have severe back problems now I can ride for 10-12 hrs instead of 1 hr and I would recommend this for any bike

Raynlinda

The best thing that i've put on the bike yet. I love it.

jlott355

This back rest is what I have been looking for. It is a little pricey. It gives me great support. However, my wife says it hits her legs and is a little uncomfortable for her. Perhaps the back support is a little wide for some people who may ride on the back.

JUST WHAT I NEEDED FOR A 1,200 MILE TRIP. NO BACKACHE. COMPLETELY SATISFIED.

CYBRCP

The mounting bracket provides no support. It is too thin and bends when you lean back against it.

easy to install makes riding a lot better

mytoy

In this ad I didn't notice that it mounted to the back seat not the front. I don't have a passenger seat. It took some modifications but it's on the front seat now.

Backup back rest is a real back saver. I rode from Port Dover Ontario to Sturgis South Dakota for a total distance of over 4000 miles. My back was comfortable to whole distance. I would recommend it to anyone.
