Default Seats - Mustang vs. Corbin

My recently acquired '03 V92TC came with the wrong seat - a Mustang model for the V92C, in addition to the fact one of the two previous owners completely removed the seat's rear mounting hardware from the top of the rear fender. Why, I have no clue, but the seat is just sitting loose on top of the bike, which means I will be getting a new seat asap. So, I see that both Mustang and Corbin are popular. It appears that Corbins are slightly less expensive plus you can move the backrest between seats if you get just one. And they have a variety of backrests whereas Mustang only has one size. Comfort of the seat will be the deciding factor, though. Has anyone used both brands and do you have a preference?

I've always found Corbins to be more firm and really prefer Mustangs for comfort. But, Corbins tend to look a bit better on most IMO.

Corbin=BRICK

BTW the only mounting point on the top for a TC seat is a single stud all the way at the back. TC gets a one piece that has a tongue to secure the front under the tank mount

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Funny, this Mustang I've got seems pretty firm, but maybe that's because it's had a lot of use. Personally, I prefer the look of the Mustang, but I would go with Corbin if the comfort level were about the same simply due to the increased flexibility with the backrests.

Yeah, I was looking at the mounting instructions for the TC seat at the Mustang site and it looks pretty simple. I just need to order me up the missing mounting hardware for the top of the fender and I'll be ready for a new seat.

Can someone comment on the relative comfort and quality of an Ultimate seat vs. Mustang? It appears they have the removable backrest, unlike Mustang.

I have Mustang on my TC and it is very comfortable.A little on the hard side but molds to your butt and also has good back support.

Any chance you'd sell the mustang?
