Default 2012 Vegas 8 Ball Drivers Backrest

Im looking for a drivers backrest that will fit my 2012 8 Ball what do you guys recommend? also is there a quick detach backrest? I have the factory front seat only but I do have a rear factory seat on order from a guy on this forum. I would also like to know if the drivers backrest would fit with and without the rear seat?

If you are using the stock drivers seat, I think you are stuck with using the passenger seat as a mounting point for the backrest that comes up between the driver & passenger seat. You can purchase a solo drivers seat that has a quick attach backrest as another option. Let us know what you end up doing and how you like it, I have been thinking of the same thing.

I bought the Vegas Backrest for the Solo Seat from Grasshopper.
I like it a lot.

Thanks for sharing Dave, I've never seen a backrest like that, I'm going to contact them this week.

I have that one and I use it every day, it pushes me about two inches further forward on the seat, which makes my butt contact it differently, in a bad way. I get sore now fast, but I like the rest so much now I hate having it off.

Fwiw

I'm 6.1 I don't think that would be comfortable being further forward but for the price its almost worth buying to try.
