The Direct Backrest Frame is a specialized aftermarket backrest frame designed to mount Jay 3, Matrx Elite and Varilite Icon backrests ranging in width from 14″ to 20″. After removing the hardware that typically comes with each backrest, the frame hardware is able to mount directly to the backrest. Slotted mounting brackets and 1″ UniTrack linkage disks provide a close, adjustable mount that maximizes seat depth. By rotating the linkage discs, the frame allows for up to 10° of backrest pitch; and the spring-loaded release lever makes it easy to remove the entire backrest and frame assembly.
