I got my grasshopper backrest today and it is awsome just like the other one I bought from him for another bike. The install takes about 3 min which is the best part. The only problem is I am 5'9 and my back does not even touch the pad. So I am going to call Lonnie today to see if he can make the bracket that comes on the pad 2 inches longer if not I mignt be able to get one made here in my town. The other option is to put 2 inch risers. I will let everyone know the outcome.

Don't worry, Lonnie will make you whatever you need to be happy. Excellent customer service!!
I'm 5'10" and have Grasshopper extending it 2" more than the 2". I think as I ride and compress against it it will be just right.Sitting on regular cut gell seat and 2" riser ext.

I just got off the phone with Lonnie and he is going to send me out a longer bracket. The bracket he is sending is for the full cut gel seat. So for everyone ordering a backrest if you are under 5'11 and have a factory seat and no risers you will need a the longer bracket (the one for the full cut gel seat). I new Lonnie would take care of it he is a great guy.
