Default Yamaha bolt sissy bar?

So this is my first question to the forum. I've been searching everywhere for a sissy bar I like since I got my stryker a few weeks ago. Have looked at everything from MC Enterprises (2nd favorite), Ginz (way to much $$$), and the Highway Hawk with the rounded bar (favorite but 50$ shipping from U.K.). I found a sissy bar that I know fits the yamaha bolt. It's the tall yamaha upright passenger backrest with the pad. I attached a few pics of it so you guys can see. But i'm not sure if it will fit my stryker. Anyone know if the Yamaha bolt sissy bar i'm talking about will fit? Also, if i'm **** out of luck and doesn't fit, anyone know of other sissy bats i'm missing out there? I really like the look of the straight up and down. Looks like an "A" I'd say. Only thing I didn't like about MC enterprises bar was that it kind of curves a little on the side bars.

I've been on the same journey trying to figure out the sissybar options. Have looked at the same you have. From what I've discovered the Bolt bar won't work.

I contacted a local guy who said he would duplicate a Ginz version for about half of what I would have to pay, as a Canadian, with the outrageous currency exchange. However, I'm not sure it would be as functional as I need.

The chief concern, for me, is functionality. I put a *lot* of miles on my bikes and need something that will carry a lot of luggage on long trips.

What I've settled on is something another member on these forums has done: Modify the stock Yamaha tall sissy bar into something functional. I've ordered the back rack and pad and am waiting for it to come in.

I'll be adding a large extension to it to extend it. I haven't decided if I'm going to use a flat bar stock (like his version) or to use tubular stock like the Bolt one, but either way the thing will work. I won't be needing his modified large back pad, so I won't be worried about that part.

Here's a picture that I'm working on... from another fine fellow from this forum's bike... this is what I'm working off of - hope this helps:

my wife has a bolt, and I can tell you now, that the holes on the rear fender are spaced differently than they are on the stryker rear fender - so, it will not fit.

I have the Cobra bar. You can chose from Short, mid, and tall.

I just got a call that my tall sissybar is in. I should have something put together over the next couple of weeks and will post what I come up with.

The simplest solution is to head to Home Depot, buy some 1.5" flat bar stock, heat the middle and bend it to a point, cut it to length, drill some holes for the bolts to attach to where the backrest goes, and paint it black.

I'm also thinking of curving the tip back, but I don't know anything about heating flat bar stock that way.

Kinda like this:


This style tip would also be super-functional as a tie off on long trips.

i bought the removable one straight from Yamaha. i looked all over the place and 700 + dollars (i'm in Canada) for a sissy bar was out of the question.
