Hey all,

I saw a backrest for around $100 for the bigger Vulcans, called a Grasshopper, was wondering if anyone knows if it's compatible with a 900? (Not listed as such) or an alternative inexpensive drivers backrest?

Checked up the grasshopper back rest, does not fit the 900 as we have rider and pillion in one part.
I made one myself using a leftover backrest from another bike, installing backward, I had to rework the backrest tubing a bit, drill holes and cut off some of the support bars, works fine for me, the lower back support changed my sitting position which in turn made the stock seat a lot better, i can ride for an hour and a half no problems.
here is a pic.
