    I just now messed with that adjustment nut. You are right. To me they put that adjustment nut on the wrong side of the block the adjustment bolt screws into.

    Backrest feels better. I need to ride more, but inclined to think I will not raise the floorboards. My legs just that bit to long, but still, my reaction time to the brake isn't the best. 2" riser on handlebars, maybe.

    Still hoping to get more info from the member in post #44 as to a custom brake pedal.

    However, in the meantime, I have found that after putting on the Heli-Bars and proper adjustments made they come back to me and therefore puts me back nicely against my driver backrest. This angle allows me to put my feet more forward on the floorboards (my legs more stretched out) and seems to almost put my toes at a slight "up" angle on the boards, thus making it a little easier to move the foot over to the brake pedal... or else I am getting more used to picking up the foot and moving it over on the brake pedal...maybe some of both...

    The driver backrest is backordered til July now. I could not wait that long. I have had Utopia on my last 3 bikes/trike. I decided to try the cheaper Show Chrome backrest. It comes 3" forward and 1" up. It's o--k-a-a-ay.... except the back pad itself could be wider. At least it is useable for now and I absolutely HAVE to have a backrest.

    You might want to try sending bill4029 a PM Pooch, just to see if there's been any progress at Refined Cycle?!

    Dude. Like, you're almost quoting me from about (6) months ago. I said pretty much the EXACT same thing. I've had (3) Utopia backrests on the last (3) bikes/trikes. Since I couldn't get a Utopia for a while, I too bought one of the Show Chrome backrests. I too HAVE to have a backrest. As soon as I got the Utopia, I sold the almost new Show Chrome rack to another forum member.
