Suggestions for Seat Upgrade

Hey Gang,

Looking for words from your own experience.

Need to know what seat you got, your thoughts and how much is costs.

My butt gets numb within 45 minutes!

Personally...

I only have experience on the Mustang Seat. With that being said, it's without a doubt at least 4x better than the Stock seat.

I have a Danny Gray buttcrack solo seat. I paid $225 shipped for mine when Dennis Kirk had it on sale.

The seat is awesome and I never go numb now. Big improvement over stock.

I'm having my factory seat reworked by Mean City Cycle. Having them lower the riding position and move it back plus adding memory foam for comfort. It's $110 and alot cheaper then a new one and they have other upgrades that are reasonable to. Worth checking out if you like the look of the stock seat.

Depends on your taste & how much comfort you want ! Wide and comfy I'd go with the mustang touring seat . If you want sleek & not as comfortable go with a sport seat which there is a number of out there including mustang . Pic bellow is the Mustang Vintage Touring seat

Started stock. That sucked. Looks the best though to me.

Then went to a Corbin dual up style. Ugly and expensive, but awesome.

Then went to a mean city cycles modified stock seat, all options, since my Wife got her own bike. Still a bit uncomfortable at 100 plus miles. But good until that 100 miles though.

Then went back to Corbin for a solo. Ugly and expensive but comfortable for 200 miles or so.

I am still searching for cool looking AND comfortable..... Not sure it exists.

The others that most folks talk about such as buttcrack and mustang seem to have the same basic measurements as the Corbin solo. Or at least too close to jump cost wise. I am guessing that those and the Corbin prob ride about the same. But they ARE cheaper. So I would prob go that route instead of Corbin if I was doing it again.


I am most likely not being reasonable in the Looks AND Comfortable part.

I'll let you know in a few days about the Mustang. Also look into C&C seats.

I also have a seat of stock virgin seats that you can have modified while you ride yours waiting. Just pay the shipping.
