This is my riders backrest to date,have made it hinged to make it easier to get on and off the bike.Will try to modify(make it look neater) if I wish to leave it on.The spanner in the 1st photo is just to hold it up to show both postions,have only rode with it for 20 miles due to adverse weather,but it seems ok,plus a lot cheaper than buying one.

Good job, matches the theme of the bike well. Been looking for a one for my M800 now for about 6 month. It looks like I'm going to have to take a risk and order from US and hope it fits! Do you find a massive difference in comfort??

I would not say a massive difference,I would not fork out to much money,try and fabricate one first to see if it is what you want.

Alfie I was wondering if you need your backrest to sit an inch more forward so that it gives a little more support. The one I made is springy and I found that makes a big difference because it allowed me to have have it slightly more forward than I might otherwise of done had it been rigid and I can feel it really start to kick in with support the harder I accelerate.

Problem with these types of mod's is that there isn't a one size and style that fits all, what works for me might not for you and vice versa. I do love the look of how you done it though by using the sissy pad, it gives it such a proper jobby look
