I posted this in introductions also, as someone there was having similar problem... I put a Mustang seat on my 03 spirit and the old sissy bar was pinching the seat so badly I had to remove it. I've seen several pics of cobra sissy bars with bigger passenger seats that seem to fit with no problem, but I'm not wanting to order one online until I'm sure it will fit. Anyone here an expert on this? My signature pic has the old one on it it was a Mapam, I've since removed it. Anyone here had or solved this problem?
