differences in seats

I noticed that on different years, the back sissy bar is lower. Which years did this. I want to get rid of the huge tower on the the back of my bike.

Ya may be able to find someone willing to trade the taller one for a lower one.
I think it was an option from Kawasaki to have the extended backrest rather than the standard one.

Or, it could also be an aftermarket backrest. Do ya got a pic of it?

I meant a pic of yours. I think it's Highway Hawk that has an aftermarket extended backrest for our bikes.

The extended backrest has a seperate pad ontop of the standard backrest.

To me, it looks like the first pic you posted seems shorter because of the rear turnsignals being mounted on the sissybar.

Oz Kaw cut his down some. You can see his HERE.

THIS ONE (hgree's bike) is the extended one.

Also.. different seats make the stock look shorter. First pic was a customized seat with the studded trim.
