I ordered the Solo seat backrest on Tuesday (05 Victory Kingpin), and it arrived on Thursday. Great customer service and the back rest installed very easy. I didn't do the electrical tape trick. I drilled a whole in bottom (underside) of bracket slot and threaded it and used another set screw like the one on the side. Backrest is super comfy and about $500 less than a Mustang seat with backrest. Thank you Grasshopper.
This product is by far the best for the price. I would say that the only downside is the tape to snug it up. Quick installation (use screws and hardware provided), and simple instructions to follow.
This backrest is reasonably priced, looks good, and fits well with my bike. Shipping was quick and I recieved what was expected. The only downside to the backrest is the recommendation to apply tape to the mount if backrest is loose when slipped in. I did not like this idea and believe that more thought could be put into this issue from Grasshopper. I actually installed a bolt through the mount because it will not be removed often. I will recommend to others, but hope the issue with tight fit can be something other than tape. No doubt 5 star rating if the tape issue is upgraded.
