Is there any other options on the market for seats with backrests that can be used with rear trunk attached?

 I guess it depends on how big the rear trunk is.

I have the Corbin seat with removable backrest, works great with my Kawi 47 mounted on Phil's rack...  :great:







What's also nice about the Corbin with backrest is you can have the backrest on without the trunk on too...  :great:

Very nice bike, does the Phil's rack move the top case farther back as it appears?  Also does the case still vibrate when empty as it does on the factory rack? Thanks for your help.

Thanks and no worries, happy to help...  :beerchug:

Yes, Phil's rack allows me to slide the trunk back a little further so that the trunk clears the backrest.

As for trunk vibes I haven't noticed any at all, but I also don't run with it empty. If I'm not using the Kawi 47 trunk and don't have mama on the back I just put my Corbin smuggler trunk on which replaces the rear seat... I just love the many options with the Corbin set-up!  :great:
