Backrest with Sargent?

Been thinking about getting an aftermarket seat. Will a Dan Vesel drivers backrest fit with a Sargent, Corbin, etc?

Thanks!

Based on feedback that we have received concerning compatibility of the latest model backrest and use with aftermarket seats such as Sargent, Corbin, etc., the backrest can be used with them. Since there are a large number of aftermarket seats available for the wee/vee there are some cases where we may not recommend using the backrest. One case in particular would be some double dished seats where the driver and passenger portion of the seat are both flared out on the sides. Again, this information regards the newest model driver backrest that we currently offer.

It worked w/Sargent on my 2006 Wee and now on my 2011 Wee.

Got a DV backrest and a Sargent and the combo works perfect. I'll never ride a motorcycle w/o a backrest again as it makes a world of difference on long rides / multiple days in the saddle.
