I went back to OEM seat, bought mustang, sent it back, was very,very un-comfartable, did not fit very good either, i'll never switch again, return shipping was $66.00
Are you sure your seat is no good?

I do have a friend who had an upholstery person dismantle his seat and replace a significant amount of the old foam with (I think) memopry foam and a gel pad. Cheaper than a Mustang or a Corbin. He says it is much better.

I have a Corbin and after a very short break-in period I love it and my butt does too. Too me it was worth it. Of course each butt is different and without being able to try one for a while it is probably a hit or miss gamble. I did not like the stock seat for its discomfort and the lounge lizard bar look.

Here's a twist for you, take the cover off your old seat and put a new one on. I found this one ready to go for 89.99 on Ebay, link provided below:
