A back rest for a sport bike? That's so dumb. LOL
Thanks it's a great idea. Too bad the first 2 responses are narrow minded and useless. It's not just a sport bike, it's trying to be a GT as well- just look at the letters on the side of the fairing. A better seat with the option to make a passenger comfortable is excellent. Thanks again.Yesterday I got an email from the Sargent Seat Co representative saying that they will manufacture both front and passenger seats for our GT's! They're even considering making a passenger backrest if sufficient interest is shown.
They've asked customers to reach out to them, with improvement ideas and comments so the finished product will be exactly what we need.

Obviously it would only be used when a passenger is aboard....A back rest for a sport bike? That's so dumb. LOL
hahahahhah. You are right!Tell your GF she looks hotter on the GT….
Or 2 up riding. My photos implied the option of one day you ride with no bags and a seat cowl, next day you throw on the paaenger seat on the back, click the bags on. Load up the gear and go. No tools, 2 completely different style in one bike. Obviously the stock passenger seat in only good for a short ride, so wide cushy seat for the passenger would make a big improvement for those who’ve turn down that road. But then there would have to be the backreast, then the floor bords, followed by the armrest and the cup holder. The music would be bluetoothed to the helmetObviously it would only be used when a passenger is aboard....
always better to ask for forgiveness ( when dealing with Motorcycles) … then permission lolMy wife is not happy with the stock seat and I bought it when she was out of town.
I was thinking bar risers could help a little anyway as I’m coming off a GS1250. Can you share what one you went with? Also, do you recall torque spec?Bar risers, rotated bars and moved the controls inward did it for me. The factory seat isn't wonderfully great but that stuff makes it reasonable for me...
I needed risers for my old Bandit 1200, so wasn't suprised to need them here. A number of folks make them for the gsxs.I was thinking bar risers could help a little anyway as I’m coming off a GS1250. Can you share what one you went with? Also, do you recall torque spec?
Appreciate all the help with getting the new bike sorted out.
