Drivers backrest

I just purchased a 2003 Wing with a Corbin seat, where the backrest folds to the front and makes mounting easier for a passenger. A bit pricey, but a good seat.

Vegas So the Utopia backrest is great. There is a bolt for the hinge that you can loosen or tighten to suit you for tension folding forward and back. There is also a set screw to set how far back the backrest will go. Depending on your reach, this can be done while riding down the road to adjust your lean angle.

I had the same problem. Fixed it by using a jam nut along with the existing nut. Two together.

ETC I have the Utopia backrest which is the first backrest I have ever had on any bike. I don't like the feeling of being locked into place that you get with this or any backrest but the more I ride the more I adapt to this feeling. I can see on long ride it will be a benefit as my back does tend to get sore after many hours in the saddle. It folds ahead nicely to allow the passenger plenty of room to get on and has a really handy pouch for the passenger to place her whip, hammer and other motivational tools. That being said the backrest came with the bike and I'm keeping it.

tamathumper There is no spring loading in the Utopia I have. But you can adjust the tightness of the nut on the pivot bolt, which will keep the seat from "flopping" forward, so it'll stay where you put it. Inelegant perhaps, but effective.

superdave1120 I have a Utopia also (Thanks Lee and Tom). Would recommend it. Makes long rides a lot more comfortable.

There is adjusting nut on mine that tightens of loosens the pivoting tension. In other words, you decide how easy it folds over.
