Sloshig I'm about to put the same seat on my 04. What do you think about grinding a bit of plastic off near the front tab to give it a tighter fit on the tank?

Seat still available?

Spockster I've found most, it seems, have 1" bars, and 1" stuff is much easier to find. Really have to dig to find 7/8" parts.

I'll have to hold off on the seat for now, but I won't rule it out just yet.

thtanner You'd probably have to get some HD oriented ones for 1" ID handlebars - which i am sure exist. Most metric cruisers are 7/8".

Spockster Sending a PM, re:seat.

I meant bar ends like some of these, there are all sorts of LED bar ends too:

It's shaped very similarly to the mustang, and I find it much more comfortable over stock. Studs just didn't match either bike really, so I'd rather part with it than horde it for 10 years. Here is a pic of someone else's, they have the tassels attached, which are removable via velcro. Expect to see the seat in the for sale section later today.

The chrome ones on my bars? They're just plastic pieces on the "ProGrip" grips. I think the ID of the tube is 1", so can probably do lots of stuff with it.

I thought that might be the answer.

I may go the same route you guys have, could even go with a solo seat. The stock seat is murder for me. really just need a bigger bike, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

That is really a keen idea, actually. My plan is just some black plastic end caps, for now. I may re-evaluate that in the future to include LEDs!

I always hated the passenger seat on the VN, so this is like a dream come true. It's a really comfortable seat, too. Not like my Mustang w/ Spensor's LD mod, but still comfortable. It's pretty darn sporty feeling when I want to lean out over the bike during turns (I ride sport bikes mostly so it's habit, reduces the angle the bike needs to lean).

I actually have a spare 900 seat I did not use that I'll put up for super cheap for a member to take advantage of here shortly, too.

michiganteddybear I agree, very clean and good looking bike. the different seat really changes the character of the bike. I put a 900 seat on mine, and I love the look (very similar to your seat, but mounts slightly differently)
