HValkrider hitchet.com who did you have your seat modified by?

cgill That's a great looking seat.

JackB I'm glad they found your bracket hopefully your seat works for you.

Afta Bracket has been found! Finally got to install the seat. I ha my seat cut down a inch and the pillion raised 1. 5. Gel sandwiched between memory foam.

Afta I paid $600 and didn't got about half the quality you did. Your version is more what I asked for Mine is plain and I'm not sure I got the memory and gel in my driver's portion of the seat. The guy was a pain in the A$$ to deal with. He's still trying to find my mounting bracket.

Where did you have it done?

hitchet.com I had the stock seats modified and could not be happier.

I have a OEM backrest and now all 3 pieces have the same pattern, I thought the OEM backrest not having the same material was on the cheap side.

I am also able to remove my side panels, if needed. I checked out a Corbin at the Galveston Rally and the salesman said he would need to remove the seat to be able to remove the side panels. I said don't bother, that's a deal killer for me.

Got all 3 pieces done, with thick memory foam for $450.

I am 6'0 and go about 275 lbs. We did a 6 hour trip a couple of weekends ago and was it was like I was sitting in a Lay Z Boy chair, very comfortable.

I have attached a couple of pics, enjoy.

P.S. If anyone knows how to rotate pics when dragging them over, please let me know the hack.

Thanks,

Afta I will take a picture later tonight. Its not wider at all. Corbin is far wider but our old one cut my wife off in the back of the legs and she's not a big girl by any means. She hated the Corbin so we tried this route this time. We shall see.

They used the original taper as they added an inch and a half rise to it. The taper up is from the original lines of the base. My wife wanted to set up higher and I needed to sit into the seat not on top of the thing.

bscrive That is how Honda should have sent the bikes out. Might have save me a boat load of cash.


Looks gooooood!!!!!!

Swagfu WOW!! That looks enormous. When you get them bolted up, can you post a picture from the rear? I would be interested to see how wide they are on the bike. The Corbin is pretty wide looking, but yours may be even wider.

Not screwed on yet but just sitting in place. I have to install the valkyrie adapter next under the seat.
