There have been a number of posts about sissy bar and backrest issues. Everyone has there own needs, likes and dislikes. My wife rides with me a lot so I need something that is comfortable for her but is not so high that it takes too much away from the awesome Fury styling. The available Honda bar and backrest setup is too low IMO. I used the Honda bar and I designed a backrest that is twice as high as the Honda backrest. I cut the shape from a 1" thick aspen board, rounded all the edges and sanded everything smooth. A local upholstery shop cut the shape from 1 1/4" foam and glued it to the board. They covered it with the same material that Honda uses resulting in a perfect match to my seats. They charged me $80.00. For an added touch I made a copy of the "Fury" logo on the front of the owners manual. A local embroidery shop digitized it and embroidered it in white to the material before the upholstery shop covered the backrest. They charged me $40.00. I drilled 3 holes in the bar, positioned the backrest and mounted it to the bar with black screws. It turned out great. See attached photos.
