Today I made an easy change on my backrest that made a great improvement for my comfort.
I moved the consoles (at rear of backrest) 1 step down and fixed them with only 1 bolt each instead of 2 (enough).

This means that the backrest comes about 30mm higher and 20mm back.
And it looks still OEM (acc. to me).
Very easy fix at no cost. Took me 10 minutes.

Wish I'd thought of that.
I took mine off completely as I didn't like the position it was in. But it does feel like there should be something to support me, just not in the factory position.
When I've got ten minutes I'm going to give it a try.

I have made about 1000 miles after change and it's super. The backrest comes a little bit higher and feels soft.
And it really gives room for the knees.
