Rider Backrest - '15 CVO Seat

New scoot has the 2 piece CVO seat which I love but my broken down ass did about 200 miles yesterday and DAMN do I miss my rider backrest.

I have found "Grasshopper Limited" and "CVObackrest.com" and then your typical eBay stuff but want to hear from the collective what you have and why you like it - I actually like the support a tad higher and worry that what I am seeing is not adjustable to the length I like.

Whatsayou......?

Thx Man - Very Comfy and sits you low - I am guessing it is a '15 as my neighbor has a '15 SG CVO with the exact same seat and all the parts on my scoot came from the '15 catalog

The Ultra is a WHOLE diff seat in its own and I think it is a Hammock Seat if not mistaken

No Sir, not selling the seat - Just looking to see if anyone who has this seat has some insight on Riders back rests - I like the looks of this sit up the way it curves around the back of the seat but not sure if it folds down for old man access - I will prob go this route after I call and fire a few questions at them:

Do you want to sell the seat now?

I'll take it...

Ha.Ha. I can't find that part number for that stitching/CVO solo. I did find the CVO backrest (passenger) #52300361 that may work for you/rider.

Nice

Don't even know if it'll fit a 13' but I want it.

I have a 13 RGU with a heated hammock seat and the adjustable rider back rest. The rest is adjustable up and down via a pull knob and 5 or 6 different holes and is adjustable via toggle switch that is hidden under the left mid frame deflector. I wasn't pleased with the height adjustments since it wouldn't go down far enough and kept hitting me in the mid back instead of my lower , so I had my son cut about two inches out of the piece that goes into the base and re-weld it for me. Works perfect now.

Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!
