Big improvement over stock!
Well made seat, replaces both seat and pillion.
Makes underseat service easier (only one bolt) and both rider and passenger more comfortable.
Seat both lowers and moves rider slightly forward and adds back support.

Nice Seat
I tried the Mustang seat first and both the wife and I didn't like it. Once I put on the Saddlemen Explorer I knew I had found the seat. It sits nice and low and is not too wide. Also Dennis Kirk shipped it quickly.

Good, but not great.
Purchased this seat a couple weeks ago. I have a few comments.
The good. First off, very fast shipping. I love the look of this seat. Excellent styling. Very nice stitching. Really sets off my LC Intruder. The seat helps craddle you down into the bike. It helps keep movement to a minimum through bumps and corners.
The so-so. Although the description says this is a gel seat, It is quite firm, if not boarderline hard. Other reiviews have said it needs break in time, so I am giving it an average and will hope for better comfort down the road. I also read that this seat gives good back support. Having a bad back, I can only agree with this somewhat. The seat does offer some buttocks and tailbone support, but little in the way of lower lumbar. Much better than stock, of course, but not as much as I was hoping for. A driver back rest will be in order in the future. However, for those who are used to, or do not mind a firm seat, I would say they would be very pleased with this one.
The bad. I'm giving fitment low marks because it did'nt quite line up with my bikes mounting holes. Also, the bolts that came with the seat were extremely long, IMO, and while instaling the brackets onto the seat, one of the heli coils separated on the inside of the mounting hole, and hence I could not fully tighten down one of the brackets. I called Dennis Kirk and was informed that I could not return the seat. I am having to deal directly with Saddlemen to resolve the issue. So far they have been very helpful and friendly.
Overall I would say it is a good seat... but am still hoping it will soften up some after it has some miles on it.

Very Disappointed
This seat just did not work for me on my 07 C50 Boulevard
I was really excited about ordering this product, most reviews were ok and the price was right.
For my wife and I, the darn seat is just to hard and I was glad to put my stock seat back on. It was so hard that we could both feel the vibrations of the road running up our spine. I just received and installed a Mustang 2 piece vintage seat and its (so far) fantastic. My wife LOVES the passenger seat and I love the feel of the covering and workmanship. The Mustang is a keeper. I wish I tried it from the start.

Wow what a difference !!!
Night and Day. Can't believe how comfortable this seat is compared to OEM. Looks feels and rides 1,000 times better. After my accident my tailbone was sore all the time. Now I can ride alot longer. Thanks !!!

Saddleman Explorer Seat
Excellent aftermarket seat! Extra wide rear seat is a dream for my wife, at 14" wide it's 5" wider than the stock seat and it makes a HUGE difference in comfort. Driver seat is snug and comfortable. This was a great purchase for my 2005 Shadow Aero and super easy to install in minutes. Don't hesitate to get one if you want more comfort on long rides.

Exactly what I had wanted.... The rider section sits nearly 1" lower than stock & the ( optional ) stock passenger seat is 9 1/2" wide & the new seat is 11 1/2" wide.... 2" wider ! I ( AND MY WIFE ) love this seat !!!

Excellent Seat, Excellent Value
First off Dennis Kirk's delivery times are spot on. Wish more businesses would get their parts out as fast as these guys do. But, the seat is way more comfortable than the factory seat on my 2007 Honda Shadow Sabre. Fit was very good. My only problem is i wish the weather would clear up so i can put a good 600 or 700 mile ride in.

Fantastic...
I did a LOT of searching and reviewing to find a seat for my Magna. There are not a ton of options, but I'm also very picky on top of this. I narrowed it to two, and chose this one due to the Dennis Kirk name. I recognize DK as a well-respected company, and do not like to deal with those of a questionable reputation.

Now, that being said, the seat itself came fast, was packaged well, and had a great feel to it out of the box. It was very easy to install, and even came with a leather washer to place between the tab and the surface of the fender--a nice touch. The picture is a bit misleading, as it seems to show the back of the rider pad narrowing down to almost nothing--when the real seat is the same thickness from riser to back--but it looks fantastic on my bike. Seat fit was perfect--no modifications needed AT ALL--and feels superb to settle down into. I really could not be happier with this product, nor the service provided in getting it to me without any hassles at all.
