Good looking work you have done attaching the Jammer and glad to you see you bring a older bike back to life.

I made the backrest out of a passenger backrest I bought on eBay just had to drill some holes and bolt it down. Thanks.

So does your Super! Did you make the rider backrest bracket or did you buy it somewhere? Very cool.

Here is an update for the house, and also a question.

I have the Windjammer mounted up with the lowers mocked on. I don't much like the lines of the lower as it sits, and would like to cut it down so that it works well but matches the "style" of the bike, maybe even shows the lines of the fuel tank a little better? Anyhow, I will start uploading photos to this thread.

Man matching up the Vetter fairing "stock" plug harness with the relevant headlight bucket bullets was a fricken nightmare. I wrote it all down and took pictures while doing it, for the benefit of anyone else who also wants to mount up a Jammer to their first GEN.

I have also started building a harness for the tourpack, and my goal so far is to leave the stock wiring harness completely intact and untouched. So far everything in the bucket is plug and play, easy peasy once you figure out how the bloody color codes line up.

I've replaced half all the pod bulbs with some awesome color matched LEDS from superbright. Had to shave the little ones down a bit but no big deal, hardest part was tracking down polarity.

Got the beast running today! First time in seven years or so. Hopefully the carbs will come back on line without too much work or a rebuild.

Anyhow, here's the pic of the mocked up Jammer and lower. Ideas on how to trim the lower? Thanks!
Yes I do. Actually I have two now. One has shorter legs than the other, they are about 12'' long, and the picture I will post up here will be of that one. For me and my purposes, that was a little too short, so I had to strap a sleeping bag in front of it . . . With the setup you will see in my photo I rode 1300 miles straight in 30 hours, 100 mile range fuel stops slow you waaaaaay down lol.

The pictured backrest is the KG. I have another "unknown" vintage backrest with 24'' arms, it does fit the KG brackets perfectly.

You can see the KG bracket in the photos if you follow the backrest back to the stock OEM backrest mount. I had to drill the holes on the bracket SLIGHTLY to match the SUPER, obviously this did not affect performance.

This would be a "bolt-on" deal for you, take maybe five minutes. Again, the KG brackets are unobtanium, vintage backrests becoming more so over time. (Good ones, at least).

What do you think of my setup? Do you want the brackets and the backrest with the longer arms? I will post up a photo of the two matched up later today. Thanks for looking!

To Moderators: I will donate 10% of any deal I do through the MOOT forum via PayPal. No wish to offend, just sharing knowledge and parts. Thanks for the host!
Do you still have the backrest? Hoping you have photos of it, and hopefully with it mounted on bike as well. Can email me at, or can call/text me at 330-407-6254. I am in Ohio, and hope that's not a problem. I have a horrible back that forced me to sell my '87 Super back in 2007. Recently purchased another '87, this one blue, and I'm hoping a backrest like this can help me ride more. I appreciate your time! Thanks, Dean
