had a burgman and my wife loved the backrest already fitted.looked everywhere and really stupid prices for a s/w and the only alternative was to fit a topbox which i really don't want to fit everytime my wife is on which is nearly always.came with the idea to fit a car head restraint instead .£8 later two hole drilled and held with epoxy resin putty and so secure you could nearly lift the backend with it.one backrest fitted so have saved a fortune. added link https://youtu.be/IHtJz8hSNNk

applause
sandancroy5 good to hear you was able to make a backrest to please your wife,because we all know a happy wife makes life livable.
I know you no longer need one. But to let people know that Givi does make one I'm posting a picture and below that a link where one can be obtained.
I'm posting this so if someone is using the search on this forum for "passenger backrest" and this post comes up it will give them the information they are looking for.

This is cool can you still put the top box on if you want to, I like this idea....A happy riding wife is a good thing.

i don't use a box yet but should i  in the future i intend to remove the backrest(head restraint) and cut threads on the legs with taps & dies and have nuts fitted so it can come on and off with ease. just done a 300 mile trip to isle of skye and my wife very happy. Smile

sandancroy5 I apologize for not mentioning in my first post how nice your backrest looks on your scooter. Embarassed  Also your country sure is beautiful, and I like your background music in your video too.

"sandancroy5"... very nice presentation. Pretty bike too. The back rest looks like it is supported on two poles. How do you have them mounted firmly enough to support any one's weight?? They look like they might be pretty "bendable". Just curious. Thanks.

thanks to everyone on their comments on my backrest. it is from a ford kuga, leather head restraint (head rest). the legs are the original part of the restraint and cut to size. two hole were drilled as you would fitting a top box and i have used an epoxy resin putty to secure from underneath the legs to tail end plate. the epoxy putty has such a good hold that you can not move the back rest up/down or back/front. well worth a try as had it not worked i would have fitted a top box

To make my pillion more comfortable ,I installed the Givi back rest,made a bracket that bolts to the back of the back rest , then fitted custom cruise armrest ,then a set of mini floor boards that she fins very comfy.Sorry I don't know how to show pics but if one looks at my personal photo album you will see a AF screen,heated grips wind deflectors from the UK ,Shark audio system ,and much more.
