Buffeting problem and back rest
« on: November 20, 2020, 09:46:52 AM »

Hi all,

First post since joining so please be gentle  ;D

I just got a 2020 CVO SG and am loving it. The 2 issues I need to fix are:

1) I've had surgery on my lower back and it's weak, so I'm gonna need a back rest. Does anyone know where I can get one and how it attaches as there's no 'slot' between the rider and pillion seats as there was on my old Electra Glide.
2) I'm 6ft tall and am getting a fair bit of buffeting. It's not bad, but it's like it's shaking my eyes out of their sockets at anything over 70mph and it's giving me a chitty headache after about 15 mins! I was thinking of putting a slightly taller screen like a Klock Flare on, but not sure if that will fix the issue. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance for the help  :)

CVO backrest works amazing and I recommend freedomshields.com for your new windscreen. Fantastic product that is equaled by his customer service. Both products are top notch. The other necessary upgrade is moving your passenger pegs up front to be used as highway pegs.
Enjoy your new ride and welcome to this site. Bunch of great folks here!

And getting adjustable floorboards for your passenger.

Does the CVO backrest simply bolt to the seat studs?

Does it also work with the passenger seat still installed?

Nice.  Thanks.  Couldn't tell (or didn't look hard enough to find) an illustration showing that for sure at the manufacturer's site.
