Exclamation aftermarket seats

I just purchased a Victory Kingpin and took my lady on a ride - good for me and bad for her.

The passenger seat was really uncomfortable and since we found this out on the road I was unable to do anything other then by gel pads etc and nothing worked.

I want to most comfortable seat available for her - I had Ultimate Seats for my last bike but they do not make them for the victory.

any and all suggestions would be helpful
Thanks

Crzn,
I have a 2007 Kingpin with a Mustang seat, and my wife really likes it. I used to have a VStar with a stock seat, and the Mustang is about 75% wider for the passenger. We have taken a couple of 100+ mile rides, and she hasn't complained. I have also heard that the Corbin seats are nice as well, but I only have experience with the Mustang. Hope this helps.

Amen Brother. When the boss ain't happy, nobody's happy. You might want to try ebay or craigslist for a used seat to keep costs down. These seats aren't cheap.
Good luck,
Rob

Default RE: Seat

Lots of options. I had the stock seat customized. For me this was over $300 cheaper. I had the stock pans redone by a local seat customizer. If you can find someone locally this could be the best and cheapest option. See the Show off your Kingpin thread page 7 for my seat. I have a different sissy bar now. The difference between the Mustang seat with a passenger backrest and my custom seat with a sissy bar was still well over a $200 savings (@$550 vs $750). My wife says the passenger seat is way more comfortable now. There are a lot of other options if you do searches. I am surprised Diamond hasn't zinged you about using the search functionality yet!

Money is no option, but without it my options are limited.

Does she really hate the seat, or does she hate not having a backrest? You can add a backrest and luggage rack to the stock seat for short money.
