    Will a sissy bar from an 82 xv750 virago fit an 82 xj750 maxim?

    Depending on how much money you have and how creative someone can be...... yes.

    If you mean bolt- on and go........no

    I've always thought the name "sissy bar" was an odd name. I had the idea it was a back rest for the rear passenger, and perhaps a styling point?
    I'm surprised the LGBTQ crowd hasn't banned the name from usage.
    Cheers, 50gary

    Hey Hawg Riders of the 99th Chapter of Hell, your sissy bars are outlawed.

    I always thought it was to get the sissy’s on the bike.
