Broken Backrest Mount
« on: March 02, 2012, 11:49:19 pm »
During winter repairs I noticed a small surface crack in the left side mount for my passenger back rest, where the bracket clamps around the passenger grab handles.

Is it possible to purchase just this part from Ma-K or elsewhere? Part #?
Will I have to purchase an entire backrest kit?
Anyone on here selling a back rest?
Has anyone ever had luck with repairing this part?
I have a welder friend I will get in touch with and get his opinion tomorrow.

The adapter is available by itself, it is Kawasaki part number K53021-083A.  It looks to be available here

http://powersportsnetwork.com/enthusiasts/catalog_item_detail.asp?catalog=6683&levelcode=3360&product=991244&cattype=&ProductCategoryCode=.

and here

http://www.gearhead.com/all/K53021-083A.html?gclid=CKCiypbIya4CFQV_hwodSRdsBg

Yes, that is the price for just the adapter

HTH,


WooHoo...hour of searching and I can't find anything.  I post a question here, and 5 min later I find my own answer.

BUT...Ron Ayers isn't to bad on the price.
