  1. Better than I had hoped- you should buy this sucker!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2017

    Bolts right on fits great after bending it back just a half inch. I'm 6 foot 5 and now I love my VTX. I was looking at Harley's but when I found out they are now made in India and forks in Japan. I thought why not buy a Honda. Harley's have a problem with their cam chains so that's another reason for the Honda. Well anyway this back rest is just what I wanted, it fits freat looks great and for a hundred bucks how can you go wrong.

    I have to admit I was worried about the back rest. this is better than I had hoped, Yes it does make you sit a little forward but if you can bend it just an half inch in a vise you will be happy. I an 6 foot 5 inches and my 2007 VTX is now the bike I always wanted. I was looking at Harley's but with with all their cam chain adjuster problems and now having them made in India I'm glad I bought a Honda.

  3. Great Value! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2017

    I was looking for something that was going to add to my ride, and this backrest does just the trick. And, at about $85, it's an awesome deal. The quality appears good, and the fitment was decent. I did add a small washer, as the bolt holes are a bit large. I will also have to bend the unit back slightly, as mine leans forward just a bit - minor issues. The backrest was delivered in no time, decently packed, and far lighter than I expected. Overall, fit, finish, installation, and comfort are all very good and I'm very satisfied.

  4. Top Shelf 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2016

    The backrest fit my Honda VTX1300R perfectly and installed quick & easy as advertised. Matches the backrest on my Cobra sissy bar to a tee, looks like they were built together. Comfy, and the design allows for instant removal while the hardware doesn't show when backrest is removed. Quick delivery and trouble free. Glad I bought it.

  5. easy installation 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2016

    Took about a minute to install,and is a a great addition. Saw backrests on other bikes but had a stock seat so didn't think I could get a backrest for stock seat,that is till I came across a site that recommended grasshopper. Now I have a comfy backrest and didn't have to buy a 450.00 seat with backrest. Thanks,

  6. Very Satisfied 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st May 2015

    I put this on my 2007 Honda VTX 1800T. On the plus side, installation was super easy, it sits just right, and it matches the stock seat. On the down side, it was very loose in the bracket and I had to use several layers of electrical tape to get it to fit snugly and the vinyl on the bottom is closed with visible staples rather than upholstery tack strips. The pros far outweigh the cons especially for the price. I hate riding without a backrest and this one is really good.

  7. Me again 2005 1300r VTX 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2014

    Just wanted to update my review "fits like a glove" now that I have some miles under my belt using the backrest. It still feels awesome, like having a chair back to rest on which is padded. Some older riders may have complained they are hitting the backrest with thier foot as they get on. I simply pull mine out of the bracket, mount the motorcycle and quickly place it back in the bracket. The quick release is truly a "genius" design and as for being too loose in the bracket I have never had a problem with it. It doesn't move when I am leaning against it. It sure has taken the strain off my arms and back. I'm 63 and the body can use all the help it can get. I am glad I choose this over the Kuryakyn 1555. It gives the bike such a clean custom made look. keep up the great work there at Grasshopper LTD!

  8. Fits My 2005 1300R like a glove 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2014

    It shipped really fast and went on my 2005 1300r really quickly. Really nice quality backrest for a good price. Looks like it came with the bike. On and off in a flash. No exposed hardware. Matches the vinyl on my seat. Was able to "bend ( by pushing against it while attached to bike ) for comfotable fit. By no means is this product flimsy. When I say bend I do not mean it gave very easily. Don't want to mislead anyone. It fits over the top of my passenger seat with out creating a depression on the seat.Feels real good on my back. Very happy with it. Feels like something is cradling my spine. Also I like the way it makes me feel secure in my seat. Like sitting in a chair. Great value and price.

  9. Great backrest! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2013

    Received my backrest very fast. The backrest was very easy to install and it looks like it came with the bike!! Haven't actually rode the bike yet since its been rainy and cold but it feels like it should work great while sitting on the bike in the garage!!

  10. Wow so this is what i have been missing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2013

    When i first looked at the web site i was worried about the low price. Then i recieved the product in about a week all the way to Canada and i was impressed. The build quality is second to none. i have shown it around to a few friends and they all thought it was worth double or triple what i paid because of build quality alone. Install was a snap longest part was opening the beer! looks great on looks great off with the bracket totally hidden. I went for a long ride and actually got to enjoy the very expensive highway pegs i installed years ago. The ride ws so nice and relaxing that i had almost forgotten the time. The guys at Grasshopper did a great job you can tell these guys are bikers they just get it. Nothing too fancy just works and looks good. My advice to anyone get one now before the price goes uo cause they have figured out what an excellent product they have. Thank you grasshopper
