Yamaha 1100 Backrest Installation Instructions
1. Remove passenger seat
2. Remove two front bolts on passenger mounting
3. Place supplied bracket under existing bracket reinstall
4. Reinstall passenger seat (may be tight at first)
5. Slide backrest into the installed bracket
(if upright is loose put one piece of electrical tape around tongue and reinstall)
Would have gotten 5 stars but directions say to put the mounting bracket under the original bracket at that didn't fit nice at all. I just took it apart and put it on top. Fits way better.
I've purchased two backrests from Grasshopper and both are excellent workmanship and quality. I've compared with similar products costing as much as $275 and Grasshopper compares favorably.
Customer service is also excellent. I recently obtained a Mustang Seat for my Yamaha Vstar so my backrest from Grasshopper no longer fit. I texted a question to the Grasshopper site and within hours I found out that they actually made a backrest for the Mustang seat on my Yamaha. I rdered and recived within a couple of day's. I can't express how awesome it was to be able to enjoy the comfort of a backrest once again. I'll continue to be a very satisfied customer and consider them for any parts that I know they make.
