Will this fit properly on an R1250G? It’s hard to tell from the website’s instructions if the rider seat and/or the pillion seats can be removed without removing the back rest. Can you comment on this?
When you say it isn’t right for you, are you referring to fit, or support, or comfort? Does it force you to sit too close to the tank?
Yes, this backrest fits all 1200/1250 GS/GSA models. As for removing the seats, here is the description (better than I could do) of how to remove the seats:
"To remove the rear seat when the backrest support bracket is installed, you will need to push (or flex) the support bar forward while lifting the rear seat off the bike. To adjust the front seat height, the backrest must be loosened, but not removed. Secure backrest and seat before riding. The REAR seat can only be used in the rear most position when the bracket is installed."
As for fit, my arms are short and I didn't really "feel" the backrest providing as much support as I thought I would. Going down the interstate is where it would be great. I don't think it would force a normally proportioned human too far forward.😄
As far as mounting, it's very easy. There are two Torx bolts under the rear seat that are removed and then replaced with the backrest bracket under them. Very easy install (2 bolts).
I posted this add yesterday night but impossible to find it.

The R1250GS models come with GPS Preparation, which includes the gps mounting hoop and the mount. I’ve been using a phone so far but am thinking about getting a Navigator V or the more expensive VI. This forum describes quite a few user complaints about the VI, many of which involve syncing...
