Need advice from all of the "experience" out there...

We just upgraded from our 1500 to an 07. My wife likes the seat portion of the new wing but finds that she would rather sit more up right. Are there any "add-ons" out there that would offer more back support? We have a kuryakan trunk rack that it could hang from and figure there must be a temporary fix out there that we can use when riding 2-up...Any suggestions?

Hartco sells a pass backrest to replace the OEM backrest. It's shaved down and will let her sit up straighter. It will also give the pass more room.

My wife has 3 dics fused, and she found the 1800 leans back more than the 1500.
I had John at Wingsoft ( www.bikesolutionsllc.com ) do my passenger backrest.
He added new foam to the existing foam and it really did the job, at a reasonable price.(quick retern too)
She no longer needs to use an extra pad to be comfortable
As I am 6'4" & 270#. I also had the Wingsoft Large done to the seat.
If you do not need the large, I would still have have him do the regular, as it adds more padding for the passenger also....
John will do whatever it take to make you and your SO comfortable, call him !
Most comfortable seat I ever had and at a REASONABLE price.

I bought the Diamond Seat backrest and my co-rider likes it much better that the stock backrest. No one notices the difference from stock looking at it unless I tell them it's not stock.

Ditto on the Wingsoft conversion!
