    Model-specific Rider Backrest Mounting Kit
Smooth Leather Rider Backrest is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Backrest but disappointed in the website! This is a good product, but the website listing this as a kit is false. It does not include a mounting bracket and the bracket is almost impossible to find on the site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get Back I have the rider backrest kit on both of my bikes. It is comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a backrest. Easy on, easy off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Accessory I Ever Installeed This back rest is a savior on long rides or just around town for a comfortable fit. The only thing that could make it better is Heat and a shiatsu massager built in. I had a back rest on a Venture but it was not nearly as sturdy or adjustable as this on. Fairly easy install, just a few bolts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RIDER BACKREST #52900-09A The backrest is really comfortable and fits perfect. The only problem is the spring, it keeps coming out and is very easy to loose. Discomfort of thought was needed on this feature.
