    New Boulevard owner

    Hello I just purchased a 07 boulevard m50. My first Suzuki. I've been looking into trying to get a new seat and a rear back rest. I was wondering whats good but also wont break the bank. Any suggestions help. Also for the back rest do i need mounting hardware? I go searching for the back rest and on some sites it lists mounting hardware and others don't so I'm not sure if its needed. I don't want to spend money on something not needed or go through the hassle of possibly shipping it back.

    How much do you want to spend? I bought a Saddlemen seat that came with a backrest for the rider. If I wanted, I could also get a backrest mounted to the struts for the passenger.
    As long as it's not them that has to pay, no one really minds the debt.

    I've realized I'm gonna have to spend a couple hundred for a decent seat. I've heard of mustang and saddlemen I just don't know whats good since there is so many options from one brand. On that passenger backrest, I don't need any kind of mounting hardware it will just mount to the struts already there like you're saying? Thanks for the response!

    Yes, the brackets mount to the struts and you can get a rack also. It would be a few bucks, but you might find a decent used one. Sometimes people buy one used and sell the rest and rack because they don't want that option. My Saddlemen is a gel that retailed for $590, but I got it new for $430 shipped. That included the rider removable backrest.
