Question 2nd dibs?

I'd like to claim 2nd dibs, if I may.


Does that seat let you sit rearward any more than stock? Would you mind getting a measurement for me?
Lay the tape measure on the seat with the end just touching the gas tank and measure back to the rear edge of that third button, where the seam is. ? Then I could measure mine and see what's up. Even if I don't get this seat, the measurement would really help me in my hunt for a cure.

I tried to compare mine last night, but it's really just guessing. It looks like the step on both seats lines up with the back corner of the side cover. But it's really hard to judge it from the pic.

Thanks.

I may have picked the wrong point to measure from.

From the tank as I gave you in the first post, I get 14". This is to the point where the step rises off the driver's seat.

From the rear of the gas cap, I get 25.25".

The rear of the cap may be a better fixed point, since the tape may hit a different spot on the rear of the tank with different seats on the bike. Your Mustang has a gap at the tank, where the stock seat may actually rub the tank.

Care to measure again from the rear of the cap? Last one, I promise.

Sorry...it's off the bike and in a box. If I gave you anything, it would only be a guess.

I did a seat comparison last year here

Information such as this should be a "Sticky" JMHO. Excellent information that doesn't seem to be in too many readily available places. I remember seeing it now that you posted a link. Good job.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
