I Added a nice backrest to my wing today, Works great, You can even make it lay over for your rider to get on, Even goes up and down, Easy to do ! Geeze Honda !

If You guys have any questions hit me up ! Way better then the " butt to back rest " I had tried !!!!!!!

Another bonus is that it could double as a toilet when you have to "go" and there arent any rest stops in site. Laughing

That is a great looking backrest. Looks like the ones the Burgman 650 riders make from a Isuzu headrest, but better. The hinges are particularly nice - very helpful for passengers getting on/off.

Could you please tell us what the headrest came from and how you modified it to fit? Smile I never ride with a passenger but I would like to try it to see if it is more comfortable. I'm using the buttstop to backrest conversion now.

Hi yes PM sent to the ones that have asked, Yes I agree with you guys the butt to back rest is well could use some help let me leave it at that, But this back rest can be made for LESS the $40 the whole deal.

I rode this evening for little over a hour and man what a difference, I am 6'4" and needed the leg room !

Hey "28681",

Since we're all friends here who like to learn about different modifications (that's kinda' one of the purposes of this site), is there a chance you could post directions/parts in the maintenance/modification section so everyone could share???  Then we'd "all" appreciate it.  Thanks.

Hey yes that is what I've been saying also, I am. Getting another headrest from the junk yard to use to take photos to show everyone how to make a backrest like this for less then $ 40 dollars,

Why don't y'all go down the junk/scrap yard and get yourselves an Isuzu Trooper headrest while you're waiting.

I'd have thought the 2 photos at the top of the page would have given you a clue.  Neutral

Gee, that sounds like something I would ask. Ha ha.
So there are a lot of good sprays in a can you can buy, that way if you change your mind, you can just redo the job over and over and over. cheers
