Default Mustang Seats for Cross Bikes ???

YES!!! It seems Mustang has listened and is currently developing a seat for our bikes. It could be available in the next few weeks! I am excited as I am not willing to gamble on purchasing a Corbin and Ultimate is unwilling to customize theirs. I cannot wait for my call to order.

Ride safe.

Do you not find the stock seats adequate. I know mustang makes a great seat, but I thought the seats were very good already.

Do you know if they will be made to fit the V in the tank extension?

I hate seeing aftermarket seats on Vic bikes that leave the V section empty. Makes them look amateurish.

Yes, IMHO, the stock seat is inadequate. I feel cramped and want more leg room. Moving back 1-2" would be outstanding to me.

If they follow suit to the rest of their seats, I'm sure the V will be in the tank extension.

When I know more, I'll be happy to post more.

Also, feel free to contact Mustang yourself as they seem willing to talk about this project.

Ride safe.

How tall are you? Did you already move your foot controls forward? Just wondering, as once in a while, someone doesn't find out they're adjustable 'till later down the road.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I'm 6'1" and my foot controls are all the way forward. I spent nearly 100K miles riding with my legs at about a 120 degree angle so the 90 degree angle the XR puts me in is mildly uncomfortable.

I had to put 2" extensions on the floorboards of my old KP to make it comfortable to ride. Since I cannot do that with the XR, the next step is moving my seating position back that far.

Ride safe.

Dang vagabond, I am also 6'1" with a 34" inseam and I have no problems when it comes to comfort on my XR. I even left my foot controls in the mid position, you must like riding with your legs straight out!

Everyone is different when it comes to the CR seats.
Mine literally had me in pain after 75 miles or so. Some people love them.

I ended up with a used Ultimate I got a deal on.
It's much better, for me at least.

I have tried mustangs seats and I felt they moved you up not back. I had an ultimate seat on my vtx and loved it. Ride Safe...
