Need larger passenger backrest

Post by DwightD » Mon Aug 05, 2019 4:48 pm



I’m looking for better back support for my passenger. I saw a decent replacement for the stock backrest on YouTube, but can’t find anything like it online. Any thoughts /suggestions? I’m riding a 2013 F6b.
Photos show what I’m looking for.

It looks to me like this is a back rest from a 1500 modified for a F6B, I could be wrong, but like you I couldn't find a F6B back rest that looks like this. If you look at the attached link, the shape of this back rest is the same as in your pictures. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Honda-Pass ... 3281850591

Hmmmm, not sure. The 1500 backrest seems quite a bit bigger. I tried to ask the person who posted the video where I saw it, but I saw no option to comment.

Maybe a Corbin saddle?

Yes, that’s it! But it was the Corbin backrest on a stock seat. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks.
