Will not fit the 2017 or later Limited model.


Dual-Mode Backrest


Born out of necessity, the Smoothspyder F-3 Dual-Mode Backrest excels on the F-3. The driver will appreciate the added support when riding alone, and the passenger will appreciate the support when the driver twist the throttle. Combines the perfect fit of form and function, a comfortable, super adjustable backrest for the passenger when riding double, or just for the driver when riding alone. Unique pivot design allows for the backrest to go from a relaxed passenger position to the driver position in seconds, or infinitely anywhere in between. Great for keeping the children close and secure and added security for dozing passengers on long rides. The contoured 10” wide x 8” tall backrest pad attractively compliments the lines of the spyder and seat configuration. The pad can be raised or lowered a total of 3.25”, locked in position, or left slightly movable to conform to the rider or passengers back position. The mounting brackets easily install on existing frame mounts, no drilling or cutting of the seat required.  All brackets are made of plate steel, laser cut, hand finished and textured black powder coated for durability. The handles are black powder coated metal and stainless steel. 




Backrest in the fully relaxed passenger position


The rack bolts to the Smoothspyder F3 backrest side brackets. You must have the Smoothspyder backrest to install this rack.

Constructed of 11 Gauge plate steel and textured matte black powder coated for durability. 

Easy bolt on installation with the later model slotted side brackets, earlier model side brackets will require drilling four 9/16" holes with the included template.

Instructions and all mounting hardware is included. Limited Lifetime warranty on the Backrest and Rack and 2 year warranty on the pad.



         The rack measures 12" wide and 14" long, the top is not pre-drilled.

The rack is shown with the Harley style Razor Tourpak that can be purchased from Ebay. It opens from the side, and this feature will allow maximum rearward travel of the backrest without the lid taking up the passengers space.

We highly recommend it for this application. The rack top has no predrilled holes.
