  1. Good Value 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2018

    Easy installation and as advertised. The fit didn't seem great, but tightening down the screws pulled the backrest into a pretty good location.

    This backrest was as easy to install as they say it is and is very comfortable - I love it!

  3. Grasshopper Motorcycle Driver Backrest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2017

    This is a fine product. I already had experience with a Grasshopper backrest for my previous bike, and consequently being pleased with it, ordered another one to fit my new bike. They are well built and take only minutes to install. I'd highly recommend this product.

    This backrest is a great addition to my bike. It makes those longer rides very comfortable. The delivery was within a week of the order, and the install time was less than 15 minutes.

  8. 100% Satisfied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2012

    When I bought this it was for 1 main reason, the price. I have to admit after seeing what I received in the mail I did not see a $100 item but much much more. This looks as good or better than the expensive ones on the internet. When I put this on my bike I experienced 2 issues. I sent an email asking their opinion and not only did I get their professinal opinion, I also was informed they would be making me another bracket that would lower the backrest as well as lean it back some. These were both personnal preferences not problems with the backrest. My advice to anyone considering ordering from Grasshopper LTD is "Why haven't you already clicked the order button?"
