This is a great seat for the money. Much less expensive than other options. My only complaints are that the seat is angled a little to far forward and since it is a quick release seat it wobbles a bit. I just drilled a hole through it and bolted it all together. Now im ready to ride in comfort.
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.
