1700 Nomad Back Rest & Bar
I am thinking that I'd like to take off the Nomad backrest & bar when I am riding single, store it in one of the hard bags, and be able to quickly put it back on when going 2-Up.
It appears that in stock form, there are 4 bolts with Allen-type heads, two on each post, that secure the rest bar behind the passenger seat. These I fear would be some effort to remove and replace when taking the bar off, and then to remove and replace when putting the bar back on. And I'd need to keep a proper Allen wrench on hand. I could do it, if necessary, but there has to be an easier way.
Does anybody have ideas on how to make the rest bar on the 1700 Nomad quickly removable and replaceable?
