This is my third Grasshopper Backrest. The first two were on Harleys; this one for my Indian Chief Darkhorse. Fit is spot on, and installation is a breeze. Keeps you firmly planted in the saddle, when at highway speeds without a windshield. Definitely helps alleviate lower back pain on long rides. And you can't beat the price, when compared to OEM. by the way, if y'all would send me the studded version, I'll gladly send the plain one back to you. Sounds like a plan!
Great product for the price. Probably not Indian backrest quality, but a quarter of the price!
A grasshopper served me well for years on my C109 Suzuki Boulevard. This one matches my Indian leather very well. Although the instructions give the possibility of adding tape to the post for stability, I did not find that necessary. Works great.
