C.C and C.R owners in regards to the comfort of the seat. Just got back from a 700mile weekend trip and was very comfrotable with the saddle the entire trip. However, in order to make the seat fit me the way its suppose to fit I had to remove the back rest.
I've done everything possible to make the back rest fit me the way its suppose to .........haver turned it backwards so that the anlge is away from the seat, have gotten bars with 2 inches more pull back but nothing works. The seat by itself w/out back rest is a great fit........with it.......not so much. Heres my conclusion:
No matter what you do to the back rest it doesn't allow your butt to hit the end of the seat. This completely changes the dynamics of your sitting position. This places you forward on your seat and doesn't allow you to lean back rather you are leaning foward and instead of your butt being in a posterior tilt with good surface area on the seat you are in an anterior tilt, close to tank and very little surface area taking the bulk of the wt.............therefore we get a sore bottom real quick.
Would be interested in your feed back with those with back rest if notice a noticable positon in your seat with the back rest on.

I assume you're talking about the Vic. backrest? The bar is bent forward for some unexplainable reason:confused:. Put mine in a press and bent it straight. Works as it should now. Have read where several other have done so as well and were pleased with the results.

Being 5'7" it works good for me.

I had hoped to get a long distance ride in before the cold hit but didn't make it.

Maybe I can get 1 in later.

dropping down to the low 40's to high 30's for the high.
Too much metal in the body to ride without my normal protection. Heated grips/seat and my leg warmers that my GW has.

I've noticed that the OEM seat pushes me a little to forward. When I get on the bike, I tend to sit down on the back edge of the seat. I'd be interested in seeing what Corbin or Mustang have to offer to let me sit back a little. I'm coming from a sports cruiser and it will take me a little time to get use to this type bike anyway.

The problem I have is the back of the seat angles reward instead of being vertical.
I have noticed that short and tall riders have the opposite problems with very few in between.
The corbin seat will move you rearward/back abut 1 inch and down some.

Mustang does not show a seat for the XC/XR bikes.

I'm not sure about being moved up and you are right about Mustang not having something available. I've been trying to sell both of them some product. This gives me a good reason to talk to my girl at Mustang. That Corbin seat looks extremely comfortable but, with me being new to Victory and them not specifically listing the XR on the seat you linked, will that fit my bike. I also noticed that they put the heater switch way back on the seat and I don't know if you can reach it without getting off the bike. That could lead to some serious hard boiled eggs man. I had a heated Corbin on my K13S and some-what liked it. It seemed a little hard, even after 20K miles of break-in. I look forward to seeing more posts in this thread.

It does not move you up but back and down. That is the norm for corbin seats.

To my understanding the XC/XR are the same except the fairing/windshield and some of the electronics; you know like the radio/speakers/2nd trip meter etc....
The seats should interchange. According to the Victory site the seats are the same. The low rider seat # 2877825 fits both the XC/XR

it would make no sense for Victory to have 2 bikes very similar and have 2 different frames or fuel tanks that would not allow the seats to be interchanged. Not cost effective.

just a thought

I would be very interested in mustang fitting this bike with a seat. Come from a VTX 1300 with a mustang seat with back rest and it was great.

:I agree:

I like Mustang products. I ordered the kuryakyn Goldwing seat and Mustang has sent me the wrong seat twice but they have covered all shipping. Oh, Mustang makes the kuryakyn GW seat.

Maybe either Mustang or Kuryakyn will do something before too long.
