Questions & Answers
Does this seat fold down backwards or forwards to ease the getting off and on the bike?
I am really looking if it folds back towards the passenger seat. The reason I am asking is that I have issues with lifting my right leg directly over the driver seat
Regrettably, this Gold Wing driver backrest does not folds backwards. In fact, every one of our suppliers only make forward folding backrests to allow more room for a passenger to climb on, but I do understand how that doesn't help your particular situation. I should tell you that, when folded forward, this particular Gold Wing backrest doesn't actually touch the flat portion of the driver's seat, just the upper edge of the stock backrest. There may be enough room for you to swing your foot through and perhaps, that would be helpful for your needs.
i have a Honda trike and do I have to take this backrest to a dealer to have it installed or does it come with mounting instructions.
All required hardware to complete the installation is included in the kit. There's also a set of instructions that have illustrated diagrams to clearly explain how to go about putting the seat on included with the kit. If you're comfortable doing an oil change or swapping wheels on your machine, installing the seat isn't difficult. So long as you have a drill and the proper hand tools, you should have no problem fitting this seat to any of the bikes we have listed in our fit guide.
Can the backrest be removed
The backrest can be removed, but there's no quick way of going about it. You'll have to get out your tools in the even you want to pull it off the bike.
Do you have to cut seat?
Yes, you'll need to cut your seat in order to fit this backrest to your machine.
