  1. Nice and Comfortable 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2019

    This is a nice product! Installation was easy except until you put the seat back on the bike.
    When the mount is in place it blocked some of the access to seat mount bolts. Make sure have the right angle on the bolts and use a deep well socket to reinstall the seat.
    I like the mount and the design of the product. The backrest has soft touch and felt comfortable when I rode the bike.
    Thinking about getting a 2nd for my other bike! They look nice and I enjoy the comfort of having a backrest on my bike.
    If you have never use a backrest this is a well made product for a good price.

  2. Fabulous product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    Shipped very quickly with status updates along the way.
    Installation was probably less than 10 minutes.
    Quality of the product is great and all alignment points were right on.
    Provides great support while riding and seems to improve my reach to the bars.
    Great investment and the shape and color match the bike perfectly.
    Highly recommended.

  3. Fantastic customer service 5 Star Review

    I lost my backrest and wanted to buy another one but didn't need the bracket. They took care of me and sent me one. Great product and great people. I will always have a grasshopper backrest on any motorcycle I own.

  4. Great seat fir the pruce 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2017

    I have been looking at a backrest for some time but could not justify a new seat with backrest due to the cost. In looking around at just backrest I felt the grasshopper seat may fit the bill. It did without question. I sent in an enquiry and had a response back within 1 day. The seat came to Canada within 1 week from USA.

    Took all of 10 minutes to install. Fits good with some flex and makes me sit up straighter which will be easier on my back. I did put some Duck toe to make the connection tighter and a ziplock to the strap just to keep secure. It looks great and I am very satisfied.

  5. Great product, fantastic customer service. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2017

    Purchased a backrest for my 2007 1300 tourer, when it arrived it was the wrong item. Contacted Lonnie and he corrected the problem and within a week I had my replacement(keep in mind it had to be shipped to the east coast of Canada) I have installed the backrest with ease, took less than 5 minutes. Looks great on the bike and feels fantastic on the back. Great product for the price. I will be recommending Grasshopper to all my riding friends.

  6. Great product for the price 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2017

    Installed this backrest on my new to me 2008 V star 1300 tourer. The backrest blends with the styling of the bike. It is easy to remove, the center base does not interfere with the passenger, and I can swing my leg over the backrest to get on the bike.
    I has to file down the washers to get them to fit into the grove in the base, but that was no big deal. This backrest fits snugly into the base with no tape required.

  7. Outstanding! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2016

    Recently purchased my first bike, 2014 v-star 1300. Immediately I knew I needed back support. Upon receipt of my backrest, I immediately installed it. Makes my ride tremendously more comfortable. Would not hesitate to recommend this product.

  8. You get what you pay for. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2016

    This is a great product for exactly what and who it was designed for. A Basic no frills easy to install Driver's Backrest. And I love it. It's exactly what I was looking for.


  9. Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2015

    Oh if life were as easy as this product: Installed fast, fit perfectly, comfortable feeling. Great quality, extremely fast delivery. I did have to use tape to tighten the insert, but that is NOT a problem to me at all. Loving the price. I'm already recommending to my friends Keep up the great work.

  10. Excellent Product for the Affordable Price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2015

    Love this backrest. First backrest I purchased ever. Made for a very comfortable 325 mile ride. Very easy install and takes lest than 5 minutes. The only down fall was that I had to use electrical tape to tighten the fit of the bracket. Will refer fellow bikers to your business.
