Well it depends on your needs. You could go with a top case with back rest.
Then there's Premier who makes a replacement rack and backrest set up. (the OEM rack is terrible)
There's also the option of buying a seat with a passenger rest on it (Corbin for example). Because again IMO the OEM sucks!
And there probably are other similar options. So I guess the first is to decide what your needs are!

I should have added that I'm not interested in a top box. I read somewhere that phils farkles makes a backrest that is compatible with his rack?? I also would not want to change out seat at this point. So I'm looking for passenger backrest opinions for stock rack or with a new rack.

I've heard of a few who bought the premier rack and back rest set up. I don't remember hearing anything bad about them.
