Fitment for Mustang Studded Wide Touring Seat with Driver Backrest - 79410
I Needed a seat for single and double comfort and support. The Mustang gave better support for me and the wider passenger cushion made the long rides easier for my wife. The removable driver backrest made 2 up ridding easy yet solo support superb
I had read great reviews for years, but just couldn't get myself to spend that kind of money on seats. When I found a great deal at Dennis Kirk, I decided to go for it. And boy, are the wife and I glad I did!! These seats were 10 times better than stock right out of the box. The quality, looks, and comfort are second-to-none. I would purchase these seats again in a heartbeat.
This seat is amazing. You know its comfortable when everyone stops for a break and you stay on your bike. The drivers backrest does push you forward a little. So you will have to get used to that. Other than that, this is the way to go for alot of comfort and style. I would highly recommend this seat to anyone.
I have not gone on a long ride yet; but, the comfort of the seat and backrest are a great improvement over the original equipment! I have a bad back. However, I have already noticed the support to my lower back and the comfort to my ride. It helps me to sit more erect. I feel that will make a longer ride a real treat! I was not sure what to expect. Yet, now I know that I will get alot more pleasure out of cruising! My passenger was pleasantly surprised by the added cushion in the backseat pad.
I would definitely reccomend this product to others! It was easy to install and looks great.
I really like the seat and the price was good. Ihave talk to others who have the same seat and paid 100.00 dollars more . I can't wait to try it on a long ride. Thanks for the fast delivery it got to me when you said it would Dale K.
My stock seat hurt my rear end within 45-60 minutes. Mustang's wide touring seat really makes a difference... More than 2 hours on the freeway, and no pain. This seat will increase my daily mileage range and my comfort significantly!! Easy to install and great looking on my Honday Shadow Spirit.
Although I haven't put a lot of miles on since I bought this seat I can tell you the overall comfort compared to the stock seat is outstanding. The backrest takes a little to get used to but the more I ride the more I like it. Easy to install and looks great on the bike. Little pricey but the quality is there. I am pleased with the purchase.
I did extensive research and found the Mustang seats to be among the best available. After considerable shopping, I found Dennis Kirk to have the best prices. I then ordered the studded 2 piece seat (driver and passenger pillion) with driver backrest. All items arrived quickly and before expected. The install was a snap! Our first ride on these new seats (with the wife) was to Luckenbach. Wow - what a difference! The stock seats were keister killers, the Mustangs are a dream! The driver backrest is a must and greatly adds to the overall comfort of the ride. The fit, finish and quality of these new Mustangs is awesome. I have also since added (also from DK) a studded tank bib with pocket. The wife also noticed a significant improvement in the comfort of HER seat and new Mustang backrest. Overall, we couldn't be happier with this purchase and upgrade. The new seats also really improve the look of the bike - it really stands out! Our only regret is that we didn't spring for this upgrade sooner. It was more than worth the investment, and Dennis Kirk was great to work with!
Received this Mustang Seat # 455315 very fast and it was beautiful! Within 15 minutes I was sitting on my new seat and the comfort is really great. I had my wife come out and go for a ride with our new seat and she says it's the best seat she has ever sat on......for me too!! I put this on my 2009 Kawasaki 900 Classic LT. It sure looks sharp and I've had many compliments. I very impressed and hope you give it a try. ALSO, UNIVERSAL HANDLEBAR ACCESSORY MOUNT. Many uses, I use it for my GPS, Radio,and MP3.....the good news is....you can remove it very quickly to keep anyone from taking it while you're away.
The stock seat on my Honda Shadow Phantom left a lot to be desired and the lack of back support took it's toll on longer rides. The Mustang seat I purchased with Back Support has made me want to ride all day and then some. I no longer end the day with an aching back and the seat is worth every penny. After shopping around and reading every review I could find I decided to order from Dennis Kirk and am very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend this seat to anyone wanting to improve the comfort on rides. It also improved the look of my bike.
I finally decided to drop the money for this seat 2 years ago and have never looked back!!!! So far I think it is the best improvement I have made to my bike, soooooo worth the money for the comfort! Mounted up perfectly to my bike, and they were very good at Dennis Kirk to talk me through fitment. Get one and throw the stock seat to the side well worth it.
I finally broke down and bought this seat and back rest and I wish I would have done it last year. The seat arrived in two days and was easy to install and looks great. The mustang seat looks great and its like sitting in a lazy boy. I would recommend this seat to anyone who likes comfort and style as well as a great price
Like others have said, I can't believe I waited so long to get the Mustang seat. After installing, went on a 1500 mile road trip and could not be happier. 500 miles per day and no fatigue, no butt burn, no back ache. Should have made this purchase a lot sooner. By comparsion - with the OEM seat, normally started experiencing fatigue and burning around 240 - 250 miles.
I bought the Mustang Wide Touring seat with driver backrest to replace the stock seat on my Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom LT. What a great improvement. Installed in 5 minutes. Fits perfectly. Makes me sit more straight (was forced in a slouch position before). Excellent for my back. Firm seat but supportive and great comfort. We did 100 miles on Sunday and my wife did not have one complaint from the ride. Overall, great value and investment in our health.
Purchased just before 9-day, 2500 mile ride. Never had a back complaint. Great support and comfort. Best upgrade I've made. Elimated low back soreness I would experience after 5-6 hours in saddle. Whole different look for my Sabre.
GREAT SEAT!!!!!!!!There is no comparison between the OEM seat and the mustang seat. VERY comfortable, you can ride all day long with this seat. The backrest is adjustable for the exact riding position. Once you have this seat there is no going back!
I waited to put about 500 miles on this new seat prior to writing my review. First and foremost, for those fellow Vulcan owners, this seat is very easy to install, it lowers you about an inch, moves you forward a tad - nothing that I can really notice, and the fit is great.
Regarding the overall comfort, this is a great addition to the bike. I really bought this for the wife as the stock passenger seat was not comfortable. The great news is this make a huge improvement for her comfort and better yet, it is more comfortable for me. She could not go more than 30 miles on the stock seat without discomfort. We recently completed a 120-mile trip without any problems.
I lowered my windshield to account for the lower seat height. I had an aftermarket backrest prior to this seat so having this in place was not much of a change - although the seat itself has a deeper profile as compared to stock to help with lower back support. The new backrest is more comfortable then my earlier version and its adjustment (up/down, angle) are quick and easy. Overall I am very happy to have this on the bike and I recommend it to others.
Dennis Kirk had the best price anywhere and the shipping was stupid fast...Ordered a Mustang seat at 7pm Wed night and it was tossed on my doorstep Fri at 1pm. How do they do that?? Who cares, I won't be buying anything from anywhere else but here, screw a bunch of hassles...who has time for that? And I hope DK management is reading this, Hats off to you all for pricing, shipping, and everything else!!! Amazing seat also. Have a nice day.
I just purchased this seat from Dennis Kirk. I cannot beat the price. In this case, the price included shipping. Usually this means I have to wait a week or more for delivery. The order was placed on 7/3 and received on 7/5. I think it would have been sooner if not for the holiday. As another reviewer stated, it took longer to find the right tools than it did to install. The fit is perfect. I can already tell the comfort is much better than the stock seat. My only concern is how well it fits my wife when she rides on the back. I also appreciated the help when I called to find out if this is the seat for me. A great company to purchase from.
I should have done this a long time ago. I ordered my seat on Saturday and it showed up today. I got it installed on my VStar 1100 Custom (one phone call to Mustang - I'm an idiot).
I only went around the block and the difference is simply amazing. I used to have to stop at least every hour if I tried to go on a long ride. Between the seat and the backrest I think I'll be much more willing to go on longer trips - and more often.
Great purchase and Dennis Kirk had far and away the best price. When my daughter gets back from spring break, or my wife decides to ride again, I'll let you know how the passenger seat is.
Seat bolted right on and fit perfect. Much more comfortable than stock seat. Wife says no comparison in the stock and Mustang passenger seat. There was a reason why friends were telling me to spend the money on a Mustang seat.
I've been wanting to add a rider's backrest to my Vulcan Classic and decided to just upgrade the whole seat in the process. This 3 piece combo is more comfortable, although it will take some "break-in" time to get used to it. It does seem to put me more forward on the seat than I have been used to with the OEM seat, but having the backrest there really makes a difference.
Do this for yourself and your passenger, you'll both appreciate the difference.
The stock seat on my Kawasaki Vulcan 900 LT had me in pain for days after even just short rides. After reading in forums & reviews about mustang seats, I decided to quit suffering & fork over the cash in hopes I could continue to ride because the pain was unbearable.. I've only rode about 150 miles on it in 2 evenings but no there's no doubt I LOVE my new seat! The backrest is a 'must have' for anyone w/ back problems. Pricey seat but worth every cent.
Looks great on my VTX1800R, I love how the studs match my saddle bags and the seat is as wide as the bike (in which I favor) but this seat has no padding to it at all. after a few hours of riding, my back hurts so bad I cant stand to sit any longer. for the money this product cost and for as much as I thought this would improve my comfort but as much as the back rest was worth the seat is so hard that it almost makes me want to put my old one back on instead.
Rider seat mounting holes to M/C fender half a hole off. Not good for a reputable seat manufacturer's engineering,design or build. OEM seats mount perfect. Passenger seat mounts with some difficulty. Appearance and comfort excellent.
