Default THE BEST! Bergman 650 & 400 Backrest Extension!

Well everyone, the backrest extension you've been waiting for is HERE NOW! Don't use a dumb headrest from an Isuzu car - truck NO, this is the extension you want, goes on very easily and looks pretty good. And, the cost is not bad at $59.00. Check it out at http://www.3brothersperformance.com At the home page click on scooters, then Bergman 650 or 400. Someone on my last scooter ride with the LA Scooter Group had one on his Bergman 400. These pictures are the backrest with extension on my 2011 Bergman 650 Executive. See how nice it is! And a pic of the dash at night with my miles now at 849 ...

Never heard of a 400 or 650 Bergman.

I bought a 3bros for my 400 and was very dissappointed in the product. Bacially a piece of plywood that you mount between your existing backrest and the mounting hardware. I cant say how long it would last 'cause I got rid of it as soon as the Isuzu headrest went commercial but I sure didnt believe it was worth even the $40 I paid for it.
YMMV

I have a 3Brothers backrest on my '03 650, and I really like it. Gives me great support in just the right place for those long rides. I did 2 big rides this summer, and each was over 1,000 miles. The backrest was a lifesaver!

And is a product provided by a company that has the distinction to be the only vendor ever banned from BurgmanUSA. Needless to say that I would never buy anything from them nor would I recommend them to any other rider.

I was considering the 3Brothers back rest. Would you please let me know WHY they are the only company banned from the site? What is the problem with them????? Is it product related or conduct related?

This backrest is just a flat piece of plywood covered with some thin foam and black vinyl stapled on. You could easily make one and, in doing so, get the backrest at the perfect height for you.

I have no idea what the problem or circumstances is or was with 3Brothers and this site, but I do know one thing... I had great service with them, got the extension in one week after ordering it, and it works great and looks good. Seems some individuals here like to make negative comments about how it's made and you can make your own. Well, of course you can, if you have the proper tools hardware and supplies. But not everyone does, nor wants to be bothered with it. This is an excellent backrest that is very stong, holds up perfectly fine, and looks good. I've had no problems with it, nor has anyone else I know. It looks and works great. So for someone who does not want to hassel with making one themselves, this is the way to go. Plain and simple. I recommend getting one for your 650 or 400 right away! Plus, the hardware it comes with is high quality and rust proof. End of Story

Isuzu headrest doesn't fit as nice and does not look good, and probably cost you a lot.
