Well,after reading that a few of you changed your butt stops into lumber supports I thought I would give it a go. Popped into the garage a couple of hours ago and this is what I now have. I have some seat fabric the same as the Swing, so I am going to make a cushioned pad to cover the new brackets.

I put a kit on my Wing when I first got it and like it a lot. Downside is if you haul a passenger, it cuts into their space. But it only takes 5 min to remove and replace. Nice work and enjoy!

That is the exact method I used to do mine, only exception is that I bent the upright bars about 5-10 degrees towards the front. Works great for me.

Yes, I may end up doing that bend, only the trouble and strife can't get her butt on the passengers seat now, not that it matters too much as she is not too keen on the Swing and is happy to stick to going on the Goldwing.

Got some foam and made up a pad and fixed it on below the re positioned butt pad. Material isn't identical, but looks okay.
