It's from a vn900 "custom". For a different look take a look at chuck A's bike in the pics at the top of this page. It's pretty much the same seat, but from a vn900 "classic" and its studded. Also the seats from the kawasaki meanstreak look simular as well, but put you a little closer to the gas tank and foot controls, Good thing if your shorter, bad if your taller.

If you want a comfy seat that moves you away from the gas tank and pegs, you could try a Corbin seat. Pricey, but you can customize the color and materials and add a drivers backrest if you want. I just wish it was easier to take the passenger backrest off and get the same look as the 900C seat. I'd hate to chop up the Corbin seat, but I really dislike having that backrest.

I only understand what I don't understand.

I went ahead and ordered a 900 custom seat myself. I have to figure out mounting though. So many people have done it so many different ways I'm lost at how I want to do it, lol.

See if you can find the release mechanism used on a 900 to mount the seat to your bike. If you can get it to work, then accessing the battery area will be a breeze!

The way most or us have ours set up you can access the battery quickly. Mine is held on with a wingnut, takes me about 15 seconds to get to the battery.
