Behold... the Kawasaki Concours 14 Stealth Backrest. After months of research and development, the Concours 14 Stealth Backrest has turned out to be a thing of beauty, simplicity, comfort and.. a worthy addition to the Pirates' Lair line of specialty motorcycle products. Our light-weight aluminum stealth rack replaces the cheesy plastic factory luggage rack in under 5 minutes with standard tools and will look spanktacular on the bike. The backrest's polished stainless steel slide bar slides on and off the bike in under 20 seconds. No modifications necessary. Just bolt it on and give your passenger the support and comfort they deserve/demand when they need it and say good-bye to those pesky fingernail imprints in your ribs..

Each Concours 14 Stealth Backrest kit includes a sleek and sturdy aluminum rear rack (which is covered with a durable textured powder coating) and one hand-matched removable backrest. Our first class upholstery is done by world renowned custom seat and backrest maker...Sargent Cycle ProductsThey have furnished imported materials that are almost an exact match for the 2008-2016 factory seat material. Very clandestine ...blends perfectly with the rear of the bike. Full 2 year replacement warranty. Fit's all model years including the 2016.

My goal was to make your Concours 14 Stealth Backrest look factory and preserve the bike's beautiful lines and I think we succeeded. Pirates' Lair also offers optional semi-soft luggage for your Stealth from CDL, Enterprises.. makers of T-Bags..

Install of the Concours stealth rack is chimp easy taking all of 10 minutes. See link below for full installation instructions.

To increase the versatility of our rack/backrest, our second generation version (which we are currently selling) is slightly different than the first year units. We have extended the length of the rack just enough to also accommodate the mounting of a trunk. It may not work with the backrest in place, but for those times when you need more storage capacity a trunk is the way to go. On the bottom of each rack there are 4 spot-drilled holes marking the locations for installing the SW-motech mounting kit. This versatile mount allows direct attachment of a Givi MonoKey trunk. If you plan to travel two-up with the trunk attached, there is an inexpensive kit available that moves the rack 2 - 1/4" to the rear so the trunk can also function as a passenger backrest.. FYI.. Our rack is 11.75" wide vs 9.5 " front to rear...


Not interested in a backrest, but you are interested in purchasing a similar sleek aftermarket rack? Pirates Lair orders our custom racks from a friend of ours who manufactures and sells them from his own website. If you are looking for a sturdier rear rack than the crappy plastic rack that comes on the Kawasaki Concours 14, he has what you want and at a reasonable price. He offers his racks in a variety of finishes to match the look you are wanting. His replacement racks (which are similar to ours except NOT backrest compatible) are CNC machined of 3/8” (10 MM) 6061-T6 aluminum and is over 1/4” (6.5 MM) thick at its thinnest point. Each is powder coated a black textured finish to match the finish on the saddle bags and has a brushed aluminum finish on the raised ribs. Slots allow attachment of almost any brand top-box mounting plate. Sweet!

SPECIALS: Want to save some money on a backrest? Not as anal as the rest of us poor bastards? On any given day, we may have a one or two slightly flawed kits on hand. Sometimes I have covers with minor visual flaws in them and sometimes the brackets have blemishes on the powder coated surface. I deem these "unworthy" of selling at full retail price. Usually the flaws are not even noticeabe unless you are looking for them... hence the $25 discount. FYI.. my standards are very rigid. All flaws are are cosmetic only. None of the flaws effect structural integrity.
