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.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

mustang seat 79220 v-star1100

September 16, 2014

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 would recommend this item to a friend.

Best upgrade yet!

August 22, 2013

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!

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great Replacement for 2002 Vulcan 1500 FI

August 16, 2013

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.

Great Seat!

July 5, 2013

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.

Great buy

June 6, 2013

The mustang seat is perfect. It got me sitting so my back doesn't hurt and the backrest contures to my back perfect. I also purchased the highway pegs. These are the ones the fold in and out depending if you want your feet out wider or closer together. Perfect fit and comfortable

Mustang seats

December 4, 2012

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.
