Seat swap

Hello,
Anyone know of an aftermarket double seat with a backrest for the driver that would fit a 2000 750?
Prefer a deep seat lots of padding.

Any driver backrest isn't going to leave much room for a passenger, so it's usually an either/or thing. Protac makes a good backrest.

Unless you have had a seat with lots of padding (soft foam) and actually prefer it, you probably don't want a seat like that. Like most Japanese bikes, the VN750 stock seat has soft foam. If you are looking for a comfortable seat, there are several options. Mustang makes a much more comfortable seat IMO, and most folks that have Corbin seats really like them. But Mustang and Corbin use much firmer foam in their seats. Why? Because it is actually more comfortable than too soft foam. You can also send your stock seat to Spencer and have him put in better foam for a fraction of what a Mustang or Corbin seat costs. Spencers Seat Modifications - FAQ I have a Spencer (Supracor option) seat on my Rebel 250 and a Mustang on the Vulcan. I like them both.

My Corbin was good. Didn't come with the original driver backrest so I got a cheap one on eBay. Worked fine. Leaves very little room, but unless your S.O. is fat, it'll work for short rides. I was dating a model at the time so she had plenty of room, lol

VN 800 seats will not fit. There are several here that have fabbed up 900 seats. There are no seats that are a plug and play fit other than those made for the bike specificly. All require some alteration to work.
