You can buy the Ultimate seats one part at a time, if you look on their website, it cost the same to buy it one piece at a time except maybe for shipping.

I am 6' 165#, I ride a mid-rider on C model bike. For me, it is way better than the Mustang wide touring.

If you went any more than 2" up 2" back the stock throttle cables will be to short. When I turn all the way to the left I can see the throttle cables would be to short if I went any more on riser change. 2007r 1300 .eo

I have the Corbin Dual Tour saddle on my R. Love it. Moved me back just a little bit, comfortable, with a backrest to boot.

Another option...

Have you considered getting your current seat modified? I've had two seats modified by Mean City Cycles and I saved a ton of $$ and am very pleased with the results.


They can cut your seat to sit your further back too.


Mean City has a fantastic reputation with members on our site.
