I need to find a better seat than the stock seat. I cannot ride longer than an hour on the stock seat with my boney ars. I have the stock drivers back rest and stock passengers back rest and would like to be able to use them with the better seat. Suggestions?

My fix was to go to a saddle customizer, which resulted in a more comfy seat tailored to my butt, got moved up closer to the bars and had heat installed.

Did you use the OEM seat and get it modified?

Mustang Vintage longest ride since buying was 19 hours and 1079 miles. I'd say it will do.

Mustang seats require a proprietary back rest, you can't use the stock rest.

If you like the pillow soft, big pad type seat go with an Ultimate Seat.
If you like a more firm, well shaped seat I swear by my Drag Specialties Low-Profile Touring seat.

What the hell, here's a pic

Shock

Is your shock working correctly. It might be worth a test ride on a brand new bike or another Victory that the owner says rides good. I had my seat reworked which did help. Shortly after that(a few months) the shock got really bad. My old shock would not hardly give, through me up out of the seat on a couple of good bumps.

I thought of Ron's actually. I work a block from his shop. Worth the walk to talk with them for sure.

If Ron's does not have a lot of experience with motorcycle seats, I'd pass. There is more to it than just the saddle. There's trimming to avoiding pressure on the inner thighs and adjusting the width of the front for ease of placing the feet firmly on the ground. There's posture and reach to be considered as well.

Is this the same seat as the Mustang seat that Victory sells in their accessory line?

I bought it from a private seller Mustang does sell them, I don't know if it's the same seat sold in the accessory line. I know I get no fatigue and I put down the miles.

Being in Canada the Canuck dollar is horrible and the seat becomes very pricey bringing it in from the south. I will inquire with the Vic dealer. Thanks

I bought mine like new 1/2 price maybe you'll find a deal. Info know the soft pillow type seats are terrible for the long haul.

I enjoyed the 1000+ miles in one shot so much I'm going to do again this spring riding from Phoenix AZ to the redwood national Forest straight through.

Thousand miles straight thru? I can't imagine doing that, that's some testament to the saddle
