Question Hello and a question

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd try and ask here.. I have a 2005 VStar 1100 custom. Can anyone identify what make of backrest this is? (apologies if the pics uploaded sideways.. they are not sideways on my computer)

I purchased Mustang seats - that is basically the only thing I have changed on the bike. The backrest - I was told was stock - however as you can see in one of the pics, the Yamaha luggage rack will not fit this back rest at all. I've asked some vendors and nobody can recognize it.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada.

I'm sorry, but I don't know what kind of backrest that is. Try posting your question in the VStar forum where it should receive more notice. Not everyone reads the introduction posts.

Welcome from East Tennessee. NorthernRider is correct, go to the VStar section for better exposure. I rode a 650 before getting my 950. Iíve never seen one like yours.
