  • Back rest

    Looking for a taller sissy bar backrest. I found a cobra one that’s taller but they’re almost 500$ here in Canada. Any other options out there?

    This is a terrible pic, but you can kind of see the backrest. I am not using it or the luggage support racks in pic... Let me know if you're interested. Shipping will probably be more than the parts...

      I hope you took off that pillion mount TEXenvy. That thing is an eyesore.

    Yamaha made two different height backrests. The taller one should be tall enough and easy to find a cheap used one. You might even want to invest in a nicer pad. Mustang makes a good one that's a lot more comfortable. It's what I have in my sig pict below.

    If that's not tall enough, just search the web for "tall Roadstar sissybar" and you can find some aftermarket options.

        I have a tall factory Yamaha passenger backrest for sale. I would sell it for $80 plus actual shipping cost. It's in great shape does not have a pad. Send me a PM if interested

          I appreciate it brother but the time I pay shipping and get hit with duty at the border not to mention the difference in dollar from USD to CND I’d probably be around the 200$ range for that 80$ haha

          The bolt spacing on the R* is the same as the Harley Softail, try searching locally for a "Tall Softail Sissy Bar" or "Tall Softail Passenger Backrest". You can even use their quick release system with some simple mounts. You might find something more affordable.
