I was very fortunate and picked up a backrest and bracket from a forum member in the classified section. Great price and it was in excellent condition. We'll worth the price. As far as replacing your seat, give the stock seat a chance, and if you decide to change, know that the stock backrest probably won't work. Good luck!
