Sissy bar

Has anyone fitted a sissy bar to their SCR950? I know this sounds odd, but this is a half scrambler / half cruiser.

I think the closest someone got to a sissy bar was a luggage rack that comes from some company Europe. I want to so say Germany, but search the forum and the topic should pop up.

Personally, I can't imagine the SCR950 being comfortable for passengers and long rides but to each their own. You'd have to do some comparing, but there may be a way to retrofit a Bolt sissy bar on to the SCR. The fender isn't too terribly different between models.

Get some leather for your SCR. Free shipping!
Set of 2 Pony Express Bags
Or get shorty on the left or right
Need under-seat storage? I've got you covered
How about a forkbag?
Know someone with a Yamaha Bolt? Spread the word about my new bag!

If you do add a sissy bar to your SCR, you might want this for the full effect.

Fehling??

More a grab rail, really. I have considered getting another, and then getting someone to fab a sissy bar for the SCR but, as @Krixtoph suggests, it’s not the most comfy two-up machine (we’ve had worse though).

As for getting a Bolt sissy bar to fit, I think you’d struggle, as we don’t have the fender struts the Bolt has. You will find the mounting hole, by the top of your rear shocks, where the Bolt’s fender would ordinarily be though!!

Not trying to hijack this thread, but good to see some regulars ( more like irregulars) 😜 back on our old forum! I guess I'm in a really good mood cuz the weather finally turned warm ( 70's), I took the rest of the week off, the carpenters are coming to finish the house, and since I can't go to the Ozarks and ride this Thanksgiving, I'm going to ride here this week! Hope all is well with all-ya-alls! Jevers

Thanks for the replies. I was thinking of a sissy bar, not for passengers, but to fit a luggage roll over, for example, a Biltwell EXFIL 80. And I think it would look sort of cool.

Well.....anything could be made to fit, if you or someone you know has the talent.....but I don’t think you’re going to find a sissy bar for such a bag “off the shelf”.

Let us know what you come up with.

I reckon one for the Bolt adapted to fit the SCR by one of the many very skillful customisers in Thailand.

The sissy bar on my previous bike is dearly missed. It was perfect for slipping a motorcycle backpack over the bar in reverse fashion letting it rest on the passenger portion of the seat. Maybe find one from an old Virago and take it somewhere for Custom Fitting.
