I just installed my new grasshopper backrest on my 2012 stratoliner deluxe. It was almost a perfect fit but I had to bend the hidden mount slightly to get it out of the way of the front seat. Once I got the fitment the way I needed it to be the back rest slipped in perfectly and it has vastly improved my riding experience. Great quality build all around!
Just received and installed it. Install was super easy. Gave 4 stars only because the 2 bracket assembly welds face up and are visible. Would be a cleaner look with welds on the underside. Comfort not yet determined until I take an extended ride but feels right so far. Quality looks good. Price point excellent.
My first time buying from Grasshopper and I couldn't be more pleased. It arrived within days of the order even to Canada. It took about 15 minutes to install and is just what I needed for a long trip. I can't understand how other companies can charge up to $400 for a backrest when Grasshopper can do it for $85.
