    Nice and Comfortable

    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.

    Fabulous product

    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.

    Fantastic customer service

    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.
