I was worried about the same thing. I haven't received mine yet, but I did order them ;) I guess we'll see what happens. If it looks bad, I'll just return the parts.

I've seen it on the bike and it doesn't look bad, but I guess you never know until you see it on your own. I ordered it and it should be delivered tomorrow (monday) according to UPS. I'll let you know when I slap it on.

I think it looks pretty cool without taking away much.Do you think there is enough sticking up to mount a barrel bag or something of the sort to fit some coats in.Of course you would have to get some fender protection somehow.Too bad Honda doesn't make a real small rack to go with it.

It is short, but I think a larger one would take away from the bike. You be the judge.

Thanks for the pic... it looks great but I will definitely wait for a much taller bar for my bike.

It's gonna be tough to get anything on it. I have a mesh web I use with a small barrel bag, but truth be told, there's not a lot of room for your stuff.

I did install it myself, two things to note. First, I had trouble finding a 20mm bit to drill through the fender. Apparently no one in my area carries it (I did find it online) and since I'm impatient I used a standard and worked the hole big enough for the sleeves to fit through. That worked fine.

Secondly, I had a concern with the way it laid on the bike. In the picture it's a little hard to see, but the sissy bar chrome runs under the rear seat and stops shy of the front saddle.

The ends of the sissy bar lay on the fender and with vibration/use it's going to ruin the paint pretty quickly, not to mention I couldn't get a bungee to hook under it. To fix that problem, I bent the front facing mounting brackets downward to lift the bar off of the fender. My dealership told me that could potentially weaken the sissy bar mounting bracket and where that is probably true, I only bent it slightly and that seemed to do the trick.

I suppose you could probably use a couple of washers to raise it up, but I didn't.

Aside from that, it was a quick install.

I'm surprised that you have to drill the fender to mount it. You would think they would use the seat mounts. I also have seen both sissy bars. With and without the back pad. Does the pad come off that one.
