Yamaha 1300 V-STAR Backrest Installation Instructions
1. Remove driver and passenger seat
2. Remove passenger hold down strap nuts and
washers from bottom of passenger seat. (Bracket mounts to the bottom of the passenger seat not the fender or the bracket!!!)
3. Place supplied bracket over existing studs and reinstall
nuts and washers.
4. Reinstall seats
5. Slide backrest into the installed bracket
(if upright is loose put one piece of electrical tape around tongue and reinstall)
I mounted the backrest in about 20 minutes, took it for a 300 mile ride yesterday. The back rest did the trick! Glad I got it and the Grasshopper folks were great to work with. Even answered my email on the weekend. Good product, good folks!
Very easy install, great quality and very happy with the product. Took it out for the first time yesterday, so much better than without. Very reasonably priced as well. A must get.
Back rest was easy to install shipping was fast and price was great . Grasshopper got it right the first time .
