Has anyone thrown a Sissy bar on the Fury. I'm not talking the stupid pointless crappy honda version, but an actual aftermarket sissy bar that sits high on the back of the back. Not CPT America like but in between.

If so, can you provide a pic of it and tell me where you went to get the shizz.

I have a local dealer telling me they will make a custom one but its gonna cost 600 bucks at least including install.

600$? For a sissy bar? Besides the one from Honda, there is one that 460brevill came up with


Also, when I get a chance this winter, going to grab some Stainless steel 3/4' or 1' pipes (or aluminum, determining on how many gifts I buy this Christmas), rent a shop out for the day and fabricate mine. Thinking of using the spot where the passenger pegs go to hook into it while single riding it, come up with another bar and location to hook into when I have my gf on back. Get it chromed at some future date... not that important, just making a sissy bar is... this stuff isn't that hard to make, so long as you are patient and can figure out angles.

I was thinking more like a chopper sissy bar

Your direct answer to your first question is no... there really isn't one @ this time unless you want to rig it up.

Suggestion:

Try making one then? Draw one out, rent out a weld shop or have a buddy weld it once you get the 2 pieces cut and fitted... You are probably thinking of the big pointy one's that the custom choppers have... Yea, that is what I'm going to fabricate for my bike when I get a chance to. Figure why not, materials aren't that expensive, especially for a sissy bar, and to weld it or have somebody weld it after you get done fab'ing the pieces, surely won't run you 600 dollars, probably closer to 100 dollars after chroming?.. or so...

Second suggestion:

Contact RAW Designs about an aftermarket sissy bar, they are pretty good about working with people to come up with some new ideas.

Isnt that fender plastic - I dont think that sissy bar could support weight
There's a metal bar "rack" underneath the back fender that he probably hooked into, it's what your back fender sits on now if you look under the fender...

It would hold weight if you attached it through the fender support rails.

Not a bad idea at all. Raw Design would hook it up huh?? I'll have to e-mail them. I dont have any contacts at a welding shop around here

I was thinking something like this:



or this:



using the rear wheel through put, kind of like Shayne used for the side mount that I have already on my bike, then maybe a single bent bar across the middle with an opening for a screw, to stabilize it with the hole already in the bumper for the backseat.

I'd like something in between the first and second images

yea, I was thinking the same thing... just posted the first 2 images that I saw with the "principle" design element that I was thinking of... Since I'm going with a spike design, probably end up in the middle of these 2, with a spike pointed top on it. Some padding if the girl gripes I suppose :(

Right now I have a custom passenger seat on my bike and it looks god awful but its good for the old lady when we ride because it causes her no pain - i figure i can cut that pad in half or replace it with a custom seat if i get a decent sissy bar on there

That is not going to work unless you plan on removing your shock and put a solid strut in its place, those are rigids that use that type of sissy bars.

Had a friend who owns a custom bike/repair shop,mount a "Drag Specialties" sissybar that he had on one of his shelves.I didn't ask him what bike its supposed to go to.He had to spread it just a little(without compromising the chrome).I will attemp to add some photos with this post.He mounted the brackets where the side reflectors had been.He went threw the fender frame and used stainless steel washers for spacers.He had to alter the pad mounting bracket and powder coated the bracket black.I added the reflector tape iron cross on the bracket.This was a new sissybar that had not been used.Some people may not like it, but I think its cool.
