    Yes I just have to get past cutting seat and cutting in the right spot . If I don't like it. It will just give me a reason to buy a new seat next year lol . I chose this one because it had little bit more adjustability forward and maybe up . don't remember also bar was black. Though you cold paint the other one. Has bag on back to cover the bar. I think it is a little bigger. Though the other one matches passenger back rest. This one uses existing hole in seat pan so that could aid in helping lining up bottom seat bracket. Both are nice.

    I have had one on for 13,000 miles and love it. Only one problem - after a few thousand miles the small (1/4-20) mounting bolts sheared off. I just drilled the bolt holes out to take a 5/16" bolt and the problem was permanently solved.

    The Bolts sheared off on mine also. I think they used bolts that were to soft. I replaced them with hardened ones and have not had problems since. I love the backrest, and would not be without one.

    Had one and liked it, no issues at all. Used "Cruiseman" installation video to install it.
