Hey Guys,

I installed the Grasshopper Ltd. Driver Backrest on my Chieftain. At less than $100, I think it is a great value. I did, however, need to make a little modification to both increase the lower back support height and stabilize the backrest in its bracket.

Here is a video showing the modification and a quick review at the end.

Dave. Great find and mod. Looks great on your bike. I looked at the Grasshopper website, 2014 INDIAN CHIEF - GRASSHOPPER LIMITED and the price is very reasonable. $99 plain, $105 studded, add $15 for a pocket. Now if only it was available in the tan color??? I wonder how much to get it redone in tan at a local shop?

Thanks Dave again for great find and mod!!

I added this "patch" to cover the unsightly velcro where the slot flap cover connects when the backrest is not installed.
Appearently, sewing is another new hobby of mine.
