Part of the deal when I bought my Fury is the addition of the passenger backrest. I'd like to take it off sometimes BUT, that would leave four holes, where the backrest frame is mounted on, exposed. Any idea on anything I can use to cover them up.

That's exactly why there will not be a passenger backrest on my Fury, you gotta pop holes in the fender to install it. I'm also fortunate enough to have an "07" Honda VTX 1300 R all set up for 2 up rides. Iv'e got the "ultimate X" seats on it, so we can ride all day on it if we choose. My wife has been on the Fury twice, she won't want to ride on it again, as long as I keep my VTX. My Fury will be a solo rider next year.

I went through the same dilema... I had everything ordered, the Sissy bar and pad... getting ready to install it and said screw it, I didn't want to drill holes in my fender and turned around and returnd all the parts.

Good Luck with whatever you decide to do :cool:

Thanks for all the input...

Clueless fits you for a name but I'm sure you meant well. I think mobe has the solution that I need.

Actually I agree with Clueless; new rear fender was $164 from my dealer; considering what I've spent on wheels, pipes; air cleaner; fuel manager; fwd cntrls, etc., it's a pretty negligible expense. Just don't like that (mobe's) cover myself; I have both seats and sissy bar atm; and I like the looks just fine for the two up riding I used to do a lot of; been doing more single-up recently, so gonna have the new fender on the bike for single seat riding. Love the broad back fender/paint out behind the seat better than the cover thingy; and with one of X-cessories.net's seat knobs on there for color and plugging the hole; it'll suit me fine :)

Thanks, kids gave me that name. If you don't really want ideas, don't ask. :cool:
Don't feel bad Cluesless... ABCFury can't help it... I used to live in Washington near Puyallup... lots of rain, always gray and very depressing....

I am sure he wasn't trying to be mean...

The new fender idea works for me...

I did the same thing. Ordered the sissy bar the day I bought the bike, and when it came in, found out that I needed to drill holes in my shiny new fender and said "F" this and returned the parts the next day!

I bought a upright and backrest pad for a Harley Davidson Softtail Duece and drilled my holes under the seat. Wife is happy my 2 daughters are happy. If i want to take it off the rear seat covers the holes. I will post a pic in a few. If I remember how.

No the 3 holes i drilled landed right on the edge of 2 of the crossmembers. 2 on the rear of the upright and 1 and the front. I cut the under mounting plate that came with it to fit in the middle of the crossmembers.

ekd,

I just bought a Fury and am in the same boat as everyone else. I don't want the backrest most of the time, but on occasion my wife (and also my daughter) would like to ride. Are you still happy with your set up?

Is it pretty easy to remove, or have you found you just leave it on all the time now?
