Give the guy a call at the number in the ad. It looks like he's a dealer, he should know and check with your local dealer. Get a manufactures name and part number. It looks like is mounts where a regular sissy bar mounts.

Well, I'm not going to swear by this, but it seems to me, the only difference between the 1500 Nomads and 1500 Classics, were the hard bags, Windshield, and a few other luxuries between the two. I would "think" it would fit on the Classics side rails.

They claim it is a Kawasaki brand part so you should be able to find it on the Kawasaki site.

Good point.
I know there are major differences between the Nomads and the Classics now, but back when they were both 1500's, I don't think there was much difference other than the extra bling on the Nomad, but like I said, I may be wrong, but my gut feeling tells me they would fit.

The 1500 Nomad actually has a different frame than the classic.
This backrest looks like it mounts to the Nomads bag rack, which is a pretty wide piece of gear. I wouldn't bet the ranch on it fitting without some adaptation.

thanks guys ..

mr boo

You will need to remove the swingarm and driveshaft to replace the boot. Not a big deal, takes a little time, but you can grease the swingarm bearings and the driveshaft splines while you have it off. The hole is where the goats belly was attached. It's removed during an aftermarket exhaust install. Check Gadget's site for info on removing the swingarm.
