I put one on my 2013 650, it works great for much needed back support. It looks like a Jac Vinson. He was very helpful. The top pad is really your existing factory backrest which you end up moving, you will have a hollow space visible from the back. I spray painted mine flat black and put on some stick on reflectors. I like the flex of the steel bar. For the cost I think it's a really good fix.
