Re: CBR929 storage/pillion support

I know this thread is ancient.....but I have the same issue. My wife will not ride on the back of the 929. Since I am always up against the tank (because of the downward sloping seat), I am too far away so she has nothing to grab onto. I tried a belt around my jacket, which was better for acceleration, but braking was still horrible (the tank is too far away for her to brace against).

I love the 929 and do not want to get rid of it for something with a better pillion seat.
Does the Renntec grab handle make 2-up riding bearable?

Re: CBR929 storage/pillion support

mechman600 I have a 02cbr 954. Very close to the same bike. My wife and i just went on a 330ish mile trip this past weekend. It was pretty good. I'm 6'2 around 240 and shes 5'3. Her hight helps with the comfort on the back but i have a corbin seat for her and a ventura pack rack. The corbin is like a horse saddle. It is twice as comfortable as the stock seat. It takes about 2weeks to get it and around 200 dollars. And the ventura was close to another 200 too. It may take 6 weeks to get it, because they didn't have it in stock. We did pretty good. You should look into those two purchases. Hopefully i was a help.

Re: CBR929 storage/pillion support

If it is the actually holding onto something, or lack of being able to, I have a solution to that problem. My missus was complaining about the same thing and refused to ride with me (aside from her being terrified of my bike), so I ordered a 2-up bar from PSR. Not the prettiest looking thing, but it certainly does the job, comes with all hardware to mount it, well made, and even includes the allen wrenches to install it. Just a thought. They run about $140.

Re: CBR929 storage/pillion support

I'm 5'11", 2-up on my blade seems ok, just need to stay a bit more upright and be less harsh on the throttle
as long as my passenger is holding onto me tight enough and paying attention, all is good in the world.

Re: CBR929 storage/pillion support

I've since removed my 2-up bar. The missus still wouldn't get on the bike, citing that she could tell it was a litre-class bike by the acceleration difference v. my '08 600rr. I just gave up and pulled the bar off since I didn't care much for the looks of it anyway.
