Getting ready to install the back rest and the dreaded first cut.
I measured the 2" from the face of the front back rest and it is about 1/4 further back than the picture shows.
Is this normal or is my seat wore more than most?
It is a 2001 with only 20k on it.
Also I tried to find center using the stitiching in the seat, I checked it from the left side and then the right and it is about 1/2 difference.
Any suggestions?

All done!!
Looks good except the pad is a little to far back but it is still under the pivot bracket. Tried to move it but it is stuck pretty good so I just left it.
Thanks for the help.

Did you check your pulse rate and blood pressure when you made the cut?:eek:

Could someone measure the height of the top of the backrest? Either from the top of the stock back pad or from the seat itself. I bought the Kuryakyn back rest and fine it too high up my back.

Thanks.

If it had been a new bike maybe I would have needed a shot of something, but being an 2001 I just measured about 15 times and made the cut.

The height of the Utopia from the seat base is 8 1/4" to 17", but this is adjustable. There is about 3/4" between the top of the seat and the bottom of the back rest.

I concur, bob. I have my Utopia up one notch and from the base of the seat it is 17 " to the top of the backrest. At it's lowest setting height it would be close to 16". I find the up one notch easier to flop over and it lays flatter when Mz, Vickie climbs aboard. I like the forward and backward tilt adjustments that I can do on the fly.
