R1200RT backrest question....


Recommended Posts

The only thing my "new to me" R1200RT will need is a passenger backrest. I was thinking of the Pirates Lair version. Anyone have one? Any others you might suggest. I am probably not going to put a top box on so using the box as a backrest is probably not an option. Thanks in advance!

I got the BakUp backrest from Cee Bailey's for my SO. She is very happy! Link here! And when "She who must be obeyed" is happy,...


Thanks BigFoot. I spotted that one and like the adjustability .... how did it mount up? Any photos of it mounted on the bike?


Thanks !!

Hi Ed,


The install was straightforward and easy. The first picture shows the seat removed. The necessary bolts and spacers were provided.




And here's a 3/4 side view



My wife did NOT like the Harley backrest, but she absolutely loves this one - even before I had made any adjustments to fit it to her.


I too decided against the top case and attach my TBags and other gear to the backrest. Hope this helps!
