  1. Great Product!! Highly recommended! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2019

    Installed it on my 2017 deluxe and have been happy with it after a 250 mile ride.

    Fast shipping, good price, no need to replace factory seat, comfy, no more sore back or sciatica after a long ride!

    Does push you up a little in the seat but after riding for a bit you adjust to it. You do have to lift your leg up a little higher when getting on the motorcycle to clear the backrest.

    Would recommend!

  3. just ok 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    Ordered this for my 2017 Deluxe. Shipping was pretty fast. When I received it, the first thing I noticed was how thick the cushion is, both on the front and back. kinda strange. but ok, I will take it to a local guy to get it cut down. The other thing, it pushes me up more that I like, my husband said he can modify that a bit. Last, I removed my back seat and have a luggage rack that fits under the bolts on the seat. I can't use the luggage rack with the backrest, which is defeating the purpose of having both on long trips. I haven't given up yet, my husband says he can make it work. who knows. If you are shorter and need that little "push" this would be great for you.

  6. best purchase 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2017

    This product is wonderful.it was a simple idea that means the world to me. I have a real bad back and without the back rest my riding get day was shorter and I hurt afterwards. It was so simple to install. Just could not believe the price the ease of installation and the comfort. Quality product for a fair price. I am a happy customer!

  7. Great Backrest 5 Star Review

    Nice to have a good product that works for stock Harley seats.

  8. Best Purchase made for the bike next to the chrome forks! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2015

    I just purchased a new Softail Deluxe and after the first ride I realized I needed my back rest. I also have an 07 Sportster with a mustang seat and backrest that I love. The deluxe seat is similar in shape as the mustang but I really rely on that back support. This was SO EASY to install, fits perfectly, looks great, and the price was fantastic. Thank You!

  9. Great back rest 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2014

    Great product. Pros: When adjusted properly it really supports your lower back. Cons: bracket could be sturdier and the base wider. Set screw doesn't hold position and is starting to strip.

  10. GREATEST!!!! Really!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2014

    I've searched for several years for the right solo rider backrest for my stock Deluxe seat. I'm 5'5 and a woman, meaning shorter torso, hence need a lower rest. HD, Kuryakyn and the others just don't work, and HD surprisingly doesn't match the Deluxe seat!

    So I suddenly found GRASSHOPPER a few days before a several hundred mile ride. The backrest is simple and cute. Installation is this: unscrew seat bolts, put on bracket, rescrew seat bolts. That's it. It sits low, and a little far back, maybe by 1 inch, but my jacket takes up that slack. It's good for lower back support, and I struggle with lower back pain.
    It moves a teeny little bit, but I think it's supposed to. I'm SO happy and relieved, and it has completely changed my ride. I got to test it last weekend over 600 miles. Also, GRASSHOPPER thoughtfully sent it overnight, even though I paid for 2-day. I look forward to more products. LOVE THIS ITEM!
