Seat options...

Scratch Mustang Seats off the list:

Mustang does not make and has no plans to make any seats or accessories for any of the jackpot models, sorry.
Thanks for your interest in Mustang.
So...who else makes seats for the Jackpot?

I finally ordered the Corbin modular front seat - keeping the passenger seat stock... From what I've heard it should be a huge difference! Still looks good, too!

Let me know how that works out. Corbin is one I'm looking at as well...

I'm thinking I might get the tourer 2-up seat and a single backrest, since the lady of the house seems to want to ride a lot and she's doing it on the stock seat w/ no backrest...

Later on, I might get the stinger, when she loses interest. Ideally it'd be a quick change...

I was thinking about getting the Stinger, too. I figured I have a hard enough time strapping down a fender bag for day trips - the stock passenger is still nice and flat for the bag. I definitely like the look of the Stinger better but then I'd probably have to look into saddle bags for cargo! Lol....

I was very happy with the JP touring seat except that it didn't have a backrest for the rider. Would have been good on longer rides. I guess I could have put something on the back seat that I could lean against though.

I have the one-piece Victory Bandit seat in stitched flamed pattern. Looks similar in profile to the Corbin. I like the profile as it really lets you "scoop" into the bike if you want to. It also gives a little lower back support if you ride "deep" in the seat. It's not going to be a favorite for anyone on super long journey's but I have no major problems riding the bike all day. You can see pics of it below from various angles...

Finally got my new Corbin seat on the Jackpot. Installation was a breeze and the fit is perfect! Looks great! Break-in is going smooth - the first 50kms took a bit of getting used to but getting comfier by the mile...

The only issue I had/have is I'm finding the stock passenger seat is digging into the bottom of my lower back. Might take a minor adjustment but nothing I'm too worried about.

What's interesting is that my 2011's seat looks like the bandit seat (minus flames) more than anything...my seat is a 1-piece with a hex bolt on the fender and two bolts underneath near the side covers.

I've seen stock photo's, and have seen pictures that suggest, that my seat is quite different - I don't have the chrome looking "pan" underneath the passenger spot (but I do have 3 bolt holes in the fender), and my seat is a 1-piece, where I've seen references to 2-piece seats.

It's enough to
