    Default Sissy Bar Predicament...

    So I just received my Tsukayu hard bags for the M109R and have run into an issue with the Suzuki branded sissy bar mounting bracket. The factory bend of the mounting bracket will not allow mounting of the bags. So my question is, does anyone make a passenger sissy bar that will work with the Tsukayu bags? Or does anyone make a passenger seat with an integrated sissy bar?

    Will that seat work if I have the Ultimate Seat in front of it?

    I'm going to have to second the "$100 Backrest". I have Tsukayu hard bags on my Nine. I used the "$100 Backrest" thread to build myself a rear seat with integrated backrest that does not rely on the side mounts, leaving them exclusively for the hard bag mounts.

    The bonus is that when I want to have a solo seat, the back rest and rear seat are removed as one unit, and I can reattach the solo cowl in its place.

    Here's some pictures taken for this post.

    Solo cowl with Tsukayu bags:


    Rear seat with sissy bar:


    Total time to change was 1 minute 45 seconds including digging out my key to remove the front seat. The only cheat I have is that I replaced the rear seat bolts with these that I bought from eBay:



    Hope this helps.

    Taz, I PM’d you about the $100 Backrest thread. I do like the idea but unfortunately, because the thread is so old, a lot of the photos are now gone. Would you be able to provide some build instructions and photos to help a fellow rider out? Thanks!

    This thread still has pics (https://www.m109riders.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=341297), and I did my own version of the same idea and can attest to all the same positive comments. It's a great solution if you have some time and basic fab-skills to build it.

    You can use the OEM brackets. Just need to play with the spacers to get the right size.

    Had them custom modified by a fiberglass guy locally.
