My review might change by trying different height adjustments. I've started with it at my lower back, but it severely digs into the passenger seat, where I've inserted a leather patch to decrease wear. At my age, a backrest required. The Spyder is going to Washington, D.C. and back, for Memorial Day Weekend, so comfort is critical.
I'm not thrilled with this, especially for what it costs. The issue I have with it is the location relative to my back. And, yes, I've adjusted it as much as possible but it still is not all that comfortable. It also makes removing the rear seat difficult but still possible.
Easy install and functions great .
We bought the back rest to help with my hubbies lower back issues. I would say with single rider and no passenger that the backrest is good although not 100% relied on the back. For two-up we can still use it although it’s a bit more difficult depending on size of passenger. The fact that it lays down when not in use is good and makes it easy for a passenger to get on the bike but you need to remember as a rider that it is there and to put it in an upright position before sitting down.
Purchased the quick detach backrest for my 2016 Can Am Spyder F3T. The package came without some hardware and after speaking with Pierre, the parts were quickly sent free of charge from the manufacturer. Pierre's great video made the instructions even easier to follow. Highly recommend CanAmSpyderAccessories.com for all your needs.
Great product,, easy to install & very good directions to follow. I have ordered several products from these folks all have been excellent and all have come with exceptional support. good job gentlemen!
