Welcome Fisherman.

There used to be a stock backrest available from Kawasaki. Not sure if they could be found now. Maybe on Ebay.
Corbin seats and some other seats can be purchased with a backrest built into the seat. Very nice.
Used seats with backrests can sometimes be found on this forum or also Ebay.

Most of us go to a Trunk on the bike with a back pad.
In many cases, a trunk can cost less than buying a backrest.
Added benefit; You have the trunk to haul things..

Ride safe, Ted

Let me think on it for awhile. I might consider selling mine since the wife doesn't ride anymore.
I have the factory backrest with pad. Also still have the template for the extenders I used to make.
Have to figure out a different place to mount my Sirius radio antenna first.
