I just purchased the 2011 Spyder RT-s. After the first 100 miles I'm looking for information on any aftermarket drivers back rest. Corbin has one, but you have to buy a new complete seat and add the back rest option. I've not found any of the seat manufactures that makes or adds-on a drivers back rest. My dealer's parts people are calling BRP but not heard back yet. Anyone know of a seat or modifcation to the OEM seat for adding a drivers back rest?

Nothing for the OEM seat, but the Corbin Seat can be ordered with a drivers backrest: Corbin Motorcycle Seats & Accessories | Can-Am Spyder | 800-538-7035

backrest

Utopa makes a back rest for the RT and uses stock seat. very comfortable from what I hear. Have not tried one myself. Hope this helps.

Buy the Corbin saddle with a back rest which you can move from the passenger seat to driver seat very easily. Superior than than the stock seat and much better than the BRP comfort seat.

Ultimate Seats also has a seat/backrest combo, and Big Bike Parts has a backrest that fits the stock seat.

Wouldn't help my back much, presently

With the forward leaning posture I ryde my RS-S Spyder in, having a backrest wouldn't be of much assistance in my comfort.
Except when stopped at traffic lights and stop sign intersections...

Perhaps if I was ever to change the stock seat out, or upgrade to an ST-S, then a back rest, would definitely be an option, with attraction.
