I think the low and mean is fibreglass, not steel so it would not be any better than the stock for use with a suction pillion pad. I had one of those suction pillion pads for my old bike and it was only just OK on a metal mud guard. For safety of your pillion I suggest you go with something that bolts on. I went with a C&C sport touring seat and a Ginz sissy bar & back rest. My wife loves the comfort and security. It was worth every cent. Ginz also did a great package deal with the seat, bar and backrest.
I think the low and mean looks fine, if that's what your after. Personally I think the stock mud guard is just fine and I am not interested in making mods that will compromise the two up capacity of my bike. As strange as it may sound I actually enjoy my wife's company and I like having her along, so when she comes I want everything to be right, her to be comfortable and her enjoy the ride.
