Passengers are complaining about a lot of Vibration from the back rest at higher RPM. Anything I can do to make ride for them a little more comfortable. :skeleton:

Have'm face the other way :D:D ... sorry, i just could not help my self....

If its a direct install to the frame (no bags) try using rubber washers, it sounds to me like something may not be tight enough .. somewhere.... frame, brackets ... back pad... use lock tite.

If you have bags installed as well, use rubber washers between the bag and backrest brackets.

It just could be one of those "harmonic vibrations" at a certain rpm that you may not get rid of. I have the LT classic with the stock backrest on it and haven't had any issues.

Once again ... i apologize.
