Ebay or Craigslist. The backrests are universal so look on Corbin's website to pick what you like then go from there.

2011 Kawasaki Vulcan Vaquero*
2004 Honda 919 *
2005 Harley Davidson Road Glide *
2002 Honda VTX 1800C*

* SOLD *

I don't know if I'm remembering it right but I believe there's one that's made by a different company that will work (for less than what Corbin wants).

I've got one of the aftermarket Ebay backrests on my '04, they're nowhere near the Corbin quality but for the price they're not bad

I actually don't even want to use it for a backrest - i want to tie down a backpack to it to add to my luggage capability - so cheaper is better.

the port for the stem comes out of the back of the seat and most of the backrests look to me like they shoot straight up. Are the stems adjustable or am i missing something?

If you don't mind having the backpack laying down, you could use the grab bar and some rokstraps. You can also secure the side-to-side action with the under-seat hooks and a single rokstrap. (They're sold in pairs at different lengths)

Rock straps, The utimate stretch straps

Why not use a dedicated seat bag?

I strap my backpack to the back of the seat using the underseat swingout hooks and the rear grab bar leaving the bottom of the backrest forward and it acts just like a backrest and carry luggage all in one. It worked great. Just an idea for ya.
