Is the backrest removable?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is removable by simply pulling it out of the revceiver hardware that’s within the construction of the seat. It also adjusts up and down several settings with an adjustment detente screw located under the seat. Solid design. Thanks for asking, Lars Roulund
Does the seat also set the driver higher?
grayburg on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it shouldn't
Is it difficult to install?
A shopper on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Mustang Vintage Super Touring Seat with driver backrest was easy to install on my 2011 FLHX Streetglide. The only item which is a little tricky is the strap over the seat as it is sized for the stock Harley seat. The Mustang seat is slightly bulkier than the stock Harley seat and the strap must be routed between the driver/passenger pillions to get reinstalled.
The ad says that it sets you back 1.75". Does the seat raise the driver?
grayburg on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it took me up about an inch also.
I have a 2016 Road Glide Ultra, I have a 30” inseam, 5’11” Tall, about 230#.
Seat is great, I’ve put over 12,000 miles on it in the last 9 months.
I have the same seat on my Road King, and put over 100,000 miles on that one.
Though, I noticed a small tear in the stitching on the Road King recently, so I’m gonna have the seat re-covered soon.
will this fit the 2018 CVO Road Glide?
danny d on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As the seat designer for several seat manufacturers including Danny Gray I can tell you that seat will fit. If you have the chrome accent strips under the rear portion of the pillion, it fits better pealing those double sided tape strips off. If you don’t want those missing from your original CVO set up, it will still fit but will be tight and sit off the fender slightly. Hope that helps. Lars Roulund.
What is the part number for the backrest only on this seat?
Kevin H on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure of part #. I believe all Mustang Back rests are interchangeable with Mustang seats.
I've seen where some people said this seat sets lower than stock and another that says it is taller than stock. So does the seat sit higher or lower than a stock seat?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Should be comparable to stock
Will this seat fit a 2020 Road Glide Limited, FLTRK?
JOEDOG on Sep 11, 2019
Does the seat combination come on any "Brown" colors of material?
Clifton V on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know
I have a 17 FLHXS, I am 6'1-240. How is ride hight and set back compared to stock ?
fuzzy on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't have a stock bike to compare.
How to remove the driver backrest.? It seems to be stuck?
Tim H on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pull real hard

Mustang Super Touring Seat w/ Backrest
I really looked forward to getting a new Mustang seat and backrest for my HD. The #79556 Super Touring seat looked like just the ticket. It arrived quickly from DennisKirk and the installation was a snap. It was advertised to give me an extra 1-3/4" of length and that it did. Unfortunately it did so at the expense of the space remaining for my passenger! The passenger lost the 1-3/4" and the backrest support bar and adjustment screw jams her in the crotch. The backrest pad is too large as well and jams the insides of both of her thighs. My girl is not a big lady by any means and this seat just wont work for her. I hope the return process goes smoothly now with DennisKirk as this seat will have to go back!

Super Touring equals super comfort
I ordered the Super Touring to replace the Mustang Touring to get more room and a wider seat. This seat arrived quickly from Dennis Kirk and the fit was perfect. The seat is very wide which makes it very comfortable and supportive. Because of the width it makes opening the bags on my Ultra classic more of a challenge as the bags can't flip straight up but you must wiggle them slightly to get them past the edges of the seat. However, it is a small inconvenience for the super side seat.

The backrest is easy to adjust but I would feel better if it locked into position. It is too easy to move as you get on and off the bike. It would also be easy for someone to remove and take with them.

The super touring does move you back an inch or so and ever so slightly down. The movement down was not enough to warrant a windshield height change. As far as the move back it just made it more comfortable for my 6'2" 34" inseam body.

You do lose a tiny bit of space for the passenger, maybe an inch or so.

Overall I love the seat and backrest, good comfort, good support and much wider than the stock offering.

Why did I wait so long?
Waited a year to replace my stock seat on my Ultra Classic. This seat is much much better! Lower, and back a little. I've had a Mustang seat on my other bike for 10 years, and it still looks great. Awesome seat!

Worth every penny
The stock seat on my first bagger, a 2015 FLTRXS Road Glide Special was the most comfortable OEM Harley seat I've sat on yet, and was fine for local riding under, say, a hundred miles during the tail-end of a Pacific North West winter. As the weather has got warmer and the rides longer, I started researching touring seats, and after some consideration decided on a Mustang, again, from Dennis Kirk, again.

This is my fourth Harley and the last three have ended up with Mustang seats. This is by far the most comfortable yet, and the backrest makes more difference than I expected. The height and tilt adjustments allow me to get the pad in just the right spot on my lumbar, and it's simply a matter of pulling it up and out if you want to look a little less cluttered riding around town. My pillion tells me that the driver's backrest doesn't crowd the passenger seat or cause problems when braking hard.

The price tag made me hesitate, but I've found Dennis Kirk the cheapest source for my last three Mustang seats, and have 30,000 miles on the Vintage 17" on my Twin Cam so the risk was a calculated one. I couldn't be happier with the seat, the comfort, quality, fit and price have all exceeded my expectations.

I have a 2013 Harley road king and a lower back problem. My first long ride on stock seat was about 200 miles. Back was really hurting. Have had mustang seats on both my bike and wife's bike before. Ordered this new seat and was not surprised in the improvement. Did 500 miles round trip to biketoberfest this past weekend back good. Also DENNIS KIRK is great good price and very fast shipping. WOULD RECOMMEND BOTH.

Bought this seat for my 2014 Street Glide, Right off the bat there was a very noticeable difference between this and the stock seat as to weight, comfort, and style. Fitment was right on the money. I did not notice being set back 1,75" as it advertises. I could understand how the back rest adjustment screw could mess with a passenger, but oh well, the back rest is great. Another person mentioned that it slightly interferred with the opening of the hard bag, I did not have this problem on my 2014. Very comfortable seat, arrived fast and overall with the free shipping, was a great buy for me!!!!

Great for taller rider
This is a comfortable seat that moves you away from the bars and slightly lower. Once your feet are on the highway pegs the saddle feels perfect

Nice Seat for 2013 CVO Road King
I have a 13 CVO Road King and had the brown Mustang Wide Road Tripper w/backrest on it. While it was good for shorter rides (less than 100 miles at a clip) and it looks great on the bike, the Super Touring Seat blows it away for comfort. Wish I had it when I rode from CT to Sturgis as my butt was numb with the Wide Tripper. Super Touring seat fits perfect and doesn't get in the way of anything on the bike. Very difficult to find a good comfortable seat for this particular bike as they didn't make a lot of them, not even from HD. Very happy with it!

Mustang Super Touring Seat
Just bought this seat as an upgrade for my gal. The passenger portion of this seat is substantially bigger and way more comfortable for her. My guess is it will get better as we put more miles on it.

Very nice seat!
