i rode for 8000 miles on my factory seat and my back would would hurt after a while i have now put on a few hundred miles on the Mustang seat and what a difference it was like riding a whole new bike...
I am going to review based on the above ratings. Over all rating is 4 instead of 5 because in my mind I can't rate something I have only sat on for a couple hundred miles so far BUT so far it is great! Comfort is very good but would have to do a couple day trip to really rate, however the minute I sat on it I was very pleased. The fit is good for me, I am 6'4'' and 250lbs Style was my least favorite thing about this seat only because I am not a fan of the 'rope' look on the 'skirt'. It is just not my,,, style. Value - Excellent! I did my research and Dennis Kirk by far had the best price and shipping was very timely. Big fan of DK.
i have taken a couple of long trips with this new seat on my bike and it was very comfortable. beforei got my seat i would have lower back pain after 100 miles or so but with the new seat no pain. i highly recomend this seat.
Realy good quality seat.Much more comfortable than the stock honda seat bothe for rider and passanger.Driver backrest can adjust in two ways and fold down for easy jump on/off the bike.price is maybe little higher than everyone expect but with this quality worths.recomended for all that find stock seat uncomfotable or for long jouneys
Hands down the best seat for any bike. My family has 3 different bikes and each one has a mustang seat with back rest. Being able to have back support makes long rides that much more enjoyable. They all are a little harder to get in than the stock seats but that's because of the extra padding but with a good smack they snap into place and your ready for the most comfortable ride of your life.
Made riding long distance a pleasure. I can ride from fill up to fill up with no problem, with factory seat had to stop every 20 minutes or so. Back rest is worth the extra money. Wish I had bought one sooner.
stock seat would make my butt numb around 40 miles, have ridden over 500 miles with this seat and no discomfort, only one in group out of 4 that could say that too. friend bought same seat for his HD softail and it is the only non HD product on his bike and he says it is the best money he has spent on his bike, enough said
Received order very fast, fit to bike very easily, Remove 2 bolts on passenger seat and slip new one in place and put bolts back on. Drivers seat works like the stock one clicked right into place. Does push you forward towards tank but has you sitting in a better position for your back. Seats make old seats seem like toys, much heavier and padded. Have not done more that 50 miles at a time yet but are much better than the stock seats. My wife says the passenger pillion is great, the stock one always gave her a sore butt.
I went through several seats before I broke down and spent the extra money on a Mustang seat. Once I did I wondered why I wasted money on anything else. Now when I get a new bike one of the first things I buy for it is a Mustang seat. Nothing better in my opinion.
The backrest makes ahuge difference on ling trips and even in town. The adjustable height and pivot back are better than anything that I had previously tried from Harley.
In my opnion you cannot go wrong buying a Mustang seat.
Having read many reviews on this site as well as several others, I have not found anyone who didn't like this seat. I purchased this from DK because they have the best price anywhere. I've taken several short rides with this seat and noticed a significant difference. The stock seat on my 2009 Honda Aero was uncomfortable after riding for 30-45 minutes. I even had an after market adjustable back rest added which didn't help support my back because it wasn't properly located. Also, my bottom was sore and numb with such short rides. However, the Mustang seat felt as if it was molded to my bottom and provided outstanding support. No more pain and no more numbness. I would definately recommend that you don't cut costs and skimp on not buying the Mustang seat without the driver backrest. I almost didn't buy the seat with the backrest but am glad that I did. The backrest is properly located and is adjustable up and down as well as forward and back. My back no longer hurts with the driver backrest. The driver backrest also folds forwarrd so you can easily get on and off the bike. My passenger has also noticed a significant difference with increased comfort with the Mustang seat.
I have a bad back. I wore a kidney belt until I purchased my new seat. I got a suzuki boulevard that this seat fits. It is 10 times the harley seat with a backrest that I have on my RoadGlide. My wife and I went to Panama City with origanal seat. No more long trips til I got her a wider seat. Now I can't go to the store without her. Mostly because sometimes it takes me seeral hours to get to the store and back. We bpth think it is the best seat at the best value. And DK is the best place to purchase from.
The original seat on my Kawasaki 900 Classic was very uncomfortable after 30 to 45 minutes. My Mustang seat is great. I do not have a problem making my 1 hr and 15 minute commute any more. The backrest is well worth the extra cost and prevents the lower back pain that I normally get when sitting for an hour or so. I gave 4 stars for comfort because the Mustang seats pushes you forwards a few inches and I didn’t have 4 ¾ star option. It also raises the sitting position a couple of inches, which is great for me.
All the reviews already say this, but Mustang is the best out there. Took a weekend trip with about 14hrs of riding shortly after installing the seat, and was comfortable the whole time. Two reasons this doesn't get fives across the board: The upgrade to get the drivers backrest is expensive. I went for it because I plan on keeping the bike a long time. Secondly the rear seat fitment to the front is a little shaky. Will probably install a rubber washer or something to tighten that up a bit. Otherwise you can't go wrong with a Mustang. DK had the best prices I could find, and had no issues with ordering and received the seat the very next day.
great seat and the back rest is worth the extra money. With the original seat after 30 minutes riding, I would start going numb. Although I have not gone on long rides, I have done a couple hours and I do not feel any of the effects I did before with 30 minutes of ride time. The fit was great on my vulcan 900 custom. The stock backrest pinched the seat, I had the bracket cut and the vertical attaching point for the sissy bar moved back an inch and now it works great with the seat. Best change I have or can make to my bike. Item was shipped quickly and I used the price match feature. very happy with Dennis Kirk experience.
Product showed up a day earlier than promised. This seat was a game changer for my Vulcan 900 Classic. Anyone with the OEM seat knows how bad they are. Now I can ride for hours in comfort. I will need to get risers for the handlebars due to the higher and more reclined riding position. I didn't give 5 stars for value because this seat is very expensive. Worth it, but expensive.
Having suffered for years on stock seats I finally have a bike and the $$ to do these kind of upgrades to a bike. WOW is all I'll say. This seat is awesome and the backrest is totally worth the price. Mustang seat arrived and the labeling said 1998 to 2003. I have a 2004 but proceeded with the install. Does not hook up to the stock tank bolt like the OEM seat. Uses the older plate sliding under the tank bolt. You have to get the nose of the seat under the bolt then settle it down and adjust to the rear bolts. The brackets on the rear have slots so you can adjust the vertical spacing about 1/2 inch if you need to tweak it. JUST DO IT! I waited too long for this upgrade and now I am a happy biker. See you on the road!
Bought this seat (with backrest) to replace the OEM seat on my '87 Honda Shadow VT1100. What a difference this seat made in my ride. Very comfortable and absorbs more of the vibrations than my OEM seat. It did raise my riding position up around 2", and moved me forward about 1 1/2". But I can put up with this, especially since it makes me sit up straighter in the seat and take the pressure off my tailbone. The backrest is a real plus, since it helps support my back. The only problem I have found is that the backrest up/down adjustment screw is hard to get to, to make minor adjustment in height. Overall, I am very pleased with this seat !!!
This review is a bit long, but if you are considering a new seat, read on. First of all It is a chunk of change, and I do try to buy inexpensive when I can because money is tight sometimes. However, I have found most of the time that when you pay cheap, you buy cheap. That's why I gave 5 stars to value. I believe that for comfort and fit this seat can't be beat. I am an older (67) long time rider who puts on 12,000+ miles a year. Comfort or the lack of it is something I know about. Like other reviews have said, my old seat would start to be a pain in the rump after 2-3 hours. Even a rest stop would not relieve the discomfort. I have had this seat on my Shadow Saber for over one month and have taken several all day rides, 6-8 hours. It is a joy to sit on. My first sit was somewhat disconcerting, it does move you slightly forward. Because of that, my thighs were not as much in contact with the seat. It felt smaller, so I measured. In my case, it is a bit over one inch wider than my old seat which was a wide bucket from Honda. By the way, no one calls me a "fat ###", but that part of my anatomy could not be referred to as petite. It actually took over a year of looking and thinking about it before I pulled the trigger. I should have bought it a year ago.
The driver seat was very easy to install on my Victory Kingpin. My butt does not get sore on long trips with this seat like the original seat did. The passenger seat is easy to install and it is wider then the original seat. Expect to sit higher with this seat then the original. Approx 1 1/2 " higher.
Although pricey, the comfort of the Mustang seat is 10 fold over the stock seat. The back rest makes me feel like i'm riding a Lazy Boy down the street. I no longer dread my rear end falling asleep on those long rides.
I looked at seats for a long time and needed the back rest for my bad back. Dennis Kirk had the best price and return policy I could find so I purchased from them. The shipping was fast, product was in great shape, and it installed very easliy. I used a little thread locker on the bolts for extra security. I have only rode a couple of times but can already tell Im gonna love it. My wife will like the extra padding on back too. It is a very professional made product.
Nice looking seat braiding along edges of seat make the seat look nice I wasn't sure it would but i was wrong. The seat fit nice and is by far way more comfortable than the stock seat. The seat does raise you a little and brings you back a little but not enough to cause a issue. The back rest for the driver is a great upgrade and makes riding so much nicer. I would buy one all over again if I had to. high in price but worth it in my mine. Shipping was fast and Dennis kirk provided excellent customer service. thanks again.
I know the Mustang seat is high priced and the back rest is even more but.....you know and I know that you get what you pay for. This seat is great for my back which is not like it was in my youth. The seat fits perfect and the rear part has lots of padding. It is a professionaly built seat and looks great also. I will buy another if I change bikes. By the way,,,,Dennis Kirk has the best price.
I bought this seat because my butt would be sore after only 45 minutes of riding and my wife would not go riding with me without getting a more comfortable seat. Now, both of us can ride for hours straight and have no complaints except for the heat here in AZ. This seat is wonderful. The back rest....a dream!!! Spend the money
No more sore tailbone. I noticed immediate comfort as soon as I got rid of the factory seat on my 08 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic. This seat sits you up closer to the tank and much more upright. The backrest is awesome on longer trips. Buy it you'll love it. I bought one for my other bike less than a week later. Now I have two motorcycles both with the same ultra comfortable seat.
So far I'm very happy with this seat, I haven't had a chance to go on a long trip with it yet but just riding around town there is a big diffference. The driver backrest is well worth the extra money I know I will never go without one again. My wife, who normally is complaining about her sore butt just driving across town says the passenger seat feels great and is now willing to take a longer trip with me. This is the second seat I have put on my bike because I went with a cheaper gel seat the first time, lesson learned spend the extra money the first time it will save you money in the lomg run. Dennis Kirk thanks for the speedy service and great prices, I can't think of one complaint out of the many orders I've received form you, keep it up!
The main reason for this purchase was for my wife, as the original seat is not real comfortable for your passenger. But, man am I glad I got the backrest, it is fantastic! Very comfortable and makes riding for hours effortless. Great purchase and I would recommend.
I order this seat because my back was killing me after a couple hours of riding the shock seat was not cutting it anymore . the new mustang seat is nice bolts right on all you gotta do is take the old one off an bolt the new on takes least then 5 mins to put on. Very happy with the seat it also comes with a back rest.
I didn't know what I was missing till I bought and installed my seat the comfort is great and the back rest can't be beat and my girls comment is the old seat was like sitting on a loaf of banana bread now there's no complaints
Only had the 900 Custom for little over a month. Stock seat was killer on back. The Mustang seat was well worth the investment, feels great, looks great, back support is awesome, and DK was considerably lower than competition. Three days to receive AWESOME!!!!!
Bought the seat for my 2002 Honda sabre so that my wife would ride more with me. Not only does she love the seat and how wide it is for her, but I love the support the seat and driver backrest gives me. I have lower back pain and the backrest prevents that pain even in long rides. The seat itself places you in a more upright position which is better for your back to begin with. Then the backrest keeps your posture in perfect alignment. I have read articles on the backrest and seat placing you too far forward...it does not...it places you upright and the backrest is adjustable so that you are able to move back. You will love the ride and comfort provided by this seat. I promise. Wish I had purchased for my Fatboy before I sold it. I will definitely purchase again.
This seat has made my bike the most comfortable bike I have owned. This seat actually takes away my back pain when I sit on my bike. The ingenious design of the seat makes it easy to remove or add the backrest as needed. The fold down design of the backrest also makes it easy to get on and off my bike. I highly recommend this seat and Dennis Kirk for your motorcycle needs.
My factory Roadstar seat seemed comfortable enough, but recently, after about 50 miles the arthritis in my lower back hurt so bad that long rides became a chore. I bought this seat based on a friends recommendation and couldn't be more satisfied. It installed in minutes and looks great on my Roadie. The best part is how comfortable it is not only for me but also for my passenger. Just finished a 610 mile trip in 2 days and neither of us had any pain or the dreaded numb bum. Buy this seat, you'll love it. (And a big thank you to Dennis Kirk for great customer service and fast shipping.)
